First look: Mizuno launch MP-T5 forged wedges

Forged Precision with 25 loft bounce options
 

5 The MP-T5 wedges deliver the touch and precision of Mizuno’s renowned Grain Flow Forging construction where it benefits most – around the greens.

A refined teardrop profile  – based on the tour grind of Mizuno staffer Luke Donald – allows mastery of the ball from a variety of set ups and positions.

There are now 25 combinations of loft and bounce – with two sole types to suit varying techniques and turf conditions.

Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forged heads combine soft touch with a high backspin rate through the use of loft specific grooves.

Mizuno’s Quad Cut Groove concept utilises a wider, shallow groove from 54-62 lofts (to grab softer, partial strikes) and a narrower, deeper configuration from 49-53 degrees (for fuller shots).
The challenge with MP-T5 was to find a way to increase spin” All grooves are precision CNC milled to ensure exact manufacturing consistency from wedge to wedge.

A new Black IP (plated) finish is designed to maintain its looks over time.

The alternative white satin finish is also permanent and the ultimate glare resistant option.

“The challenge with MP-T5 was to find a way to increase spin,” said Chris Voshall, senior engineer.

“It came down to square-ness of hit, which is achieved differently depending on your technique. So we added a huge variation of loft and bounce options. “
