This was mentioned in Golfwrx and is in the conforming lists.



Does anyone recognise it?

The lists show 50*, 52*, 56*, 58* and 60*.

I game the Callaway Mack Daddy Forged, brilliant wedges. Looks don’t spin the ball or have good turf interaction, engineering does

Yes, I get that, but I would still want my Mizuno Wedge look like a Mizuno and not some knock off Callaway. If I wanted a Mack-Daddy, I could buy that one already.
I will admit that looks are quite important to me in Golf Equipment so not everyone might share my opinion. And that's fine.

I tend to be dissapointed. I was hoping for a clean, classic design, such as the good old MPT-11.

Good news: the T20s look completely different and much better than what was posted above.

The problem with my wedge play has nothing to do with which wedge I use. I'm pretty sure it's totally my problem.

I do feel like the look of the wedge matters to me. I don't know that I could even explain it. I just look at some in the address position and feel confidant, but some just don't look right to me.

One thing I've felt with my Mizuno wedges is, remembering I usually need to lengthen my clubs to match my iron set lengths, is that the Mizuno wedges are heavier. I have some Vokey wedges that were lighter and when lengthened them they still felt more controllable for me. I have an old set of Ping G20 irons all the way through the lob wedge. They have a huge sole on them and as a feature that seems to work on the softer, sandy Miami turf, that seems to work for me too. So, I tend to look for wedges with deeper soles.

All that said, just looking at the thin sole on the wedge above, I know if couldn't be right for me.

This interests me IF, it has plenty of grind and loft options. I'm looking at getting RTX 4's for the shape and options available, otherwise I'd get some mizzy wedges

I’m a big fan of the Cleveland wedges, I have four RTx 3, 50,54,58 and 62. The 58 stays in the bag for winter and the 62 replaces it for summer. I’d love to have mizzie wedges instead but I haven’t found them to match up to the Cleveland in terms of feel and spin. Which is a shock really. (I am still loving my MP-18 blades though and my ST180 driver)

Good point MrK20 - I recently changed my wedges to a set of S18 (Black IP) & I am very impressed with them so far - Feel is great & I can generate plenty of spin, especially full shots with the 49* - Being Mizuno they look fantastic of course!
