Mizuno's new MP T-10 Series wedges
Mizuno has introduced the new MP T-10 Series of wedges featuring patented Quad Cut Groove Technology. The wedges combine Mizuno's patented Grain Flow Forged feel groove design, and a head shape and sole designed to provide spin and precision in the short game. The wedges are forged from 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel to provide soft, solid and consistent feel around greens. An innovative 360 sole grind and thinner top line deliver shot-making versatility. With the high-spin Quad Cut Grooves, Mizuno has precise control of the width, depth, draft angle and shoulder radius of each and every groove. Mizuno says the result is maximum spin control and ball stopping power in all conditions.
The wedges feature a classic teardrop headshape, are available in both a durable Plated White Satin finish and a Raw Black Satin, are available in a variety of bounce configurations, and come in lofts between 50 and 64 degrees. Standard shaft is the True Temper Dynamic Gold Wedge flex, and standard grip is the Mizuno/Golf Pride M-21 58 Round. Other shafts, grips, loft and lie adjustments are available through Mizuno's custom club department. Suggested retail price for the MP T-10 wedges is $120. They conform to USGA rules for all amateurs through 2013, but are non-conforming for major pro tours. Visit www.mizunousa.com.
