Mizuno are going to be keeping Santa busy this Christmas, on the back of the new MP-20 irons launch comes Mizuno’s new T-20 wedge system which will have three different finishes, satin chrome, Blue ION and a new RAW and ready-to-rust option. There are also three grind options STD BEVEL to Subtle M and Aggressive C grinds.
The T-Series wedges has a classic teardrop profile design and use a Grain Flow Forged HD from 1025E mild carbon steel, for what Mizuno describe as the ultimate blend of looks, feel, control and workability around the green and on shorter approach shots.
T20 wedges feature a new Hydroflow Micro Grooves, that are vertically etched to help release moisture and maintain spin even in damp conditions. Each wedge is spin-weighted, with weight placed high within a tapered blade for increased spin and vertical stability on off-centre strikes.
To ensure consistency and predictability each head features precise CNC-milled grooves which are mechanically milled to the highest possible tolerances, Grain Flow Forging to ensure a perfectly flat striking face and consistent levels of spin. The 1025E mild carbon steel billets have been infused with an element of Boron to give them more durability for longer-lasting groove performance and reliable spin.
In the higher lofts, T20 wedges feature a wider, shallower groove to grab more of the ball on those partial/finesse shots around the green to help create extra grab and stop. The lower lofts, the grooves are narrower and deeper so more of the ball goes deeper into the grooves on full shots giving you extra spin and control.
The classic teardrop profile varies from loft to loft. The lower-lofted 46? pitching wedge retains a defined teardrop profile, but this flows through to a more rounded profile in the 60? degree lob wedge as the need for versatility increases around the green.
“Although our T-Series wedges haven't been available to the public for over a year, they've become even more popular on tour over that time,” says Kyle Hammond, Mizuno’s PGA Tour Technician. “The teardrop shape, forged feel and addition of a ‘tour only’ RAW finish brought the wedge to iconic status. The updated T20 has been a long time in coming but with a few extra design tweaks we learned over the last year it will finally bring all that wedge goodness back to the public.”
