MP-18 mb 50 degree gap wedge

Thu Nov 30, 2017 9:26 pm

Anyone know if this club is available? MPX?

If not, do you think I’d get away with bending a PW to 50 degrees? I know it will decrease offset (like) and increase bounce (fine with this club).

Comments?

You'd have to bend it by 4 degrees to get it to 50 Jayson which is quite a big shift, from memory I think Mizuno website say + - 2deg on loft adjustments

Why don’t you just buy an extra wedge with the same specs as your sand/lob wedge? I had 46/50/56/60 in MP T7 before they were stolen.

I have the wedge with the right spec Nick, it’s just I would prefer sets to include a 50 degree. I don’t tend to hit full wedges so hitting a full shot with a 50 feels wrong. Let’s face it, it’s a pitching wedge in old money.

I think Chris Voshall said in a video that there is no gap in the mp sets as the buyers of mp tends to go with speciality wedges after the pw.

That’s my problem though MM is the new lofts on clubs mean that there is no pw any more. 4-PW is really 3-9 iron.

bring back the 10 iron :D
