2009 Wedges Buyer's Guide
|KZG RSS |
Key Feature: An innovative notch-and-sole design that affords players the chance to open or close the club without altering its bounce.
What We Like: Its design and mirror finish are classy and refined. To be honest, we’re afraid to get it dirty!
Who It’s For: Low-handicappers who want a versatile wedge; and mid- and high-handicappers who need a club that will improve their short game. KZG recommends using a soft shaft flex for maximum feel.
Specs: In three lofts (52°, 56°, 60°). kzgolf.com | Custom Order
| Mizuno MP-R |
Key Feature: Its “workshop grind” sole provides advanced playability on square-, open- or even closed-face shots around the green.
What We Like: We’re all about choice, and the MP-R wedges give us just that. We can choose between two finishes—nickel or chrome—and multiple bounce angles. Also, they have a classic round-head shape and CNC Max-Milled square grooves.
Who It’s For: All players.
Specs: Comes in five lofts (52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°) with a True Temper DG shaft. mizunousa.com | $120
| Mizuno MP-T |
Key Feature: A C-shape grind sole that makes it easier to hit a variety of different shots.
What We Like: We’ve always been a big fan of Mizuno’s legendary craftsmanship, and the MP-T doesn’t disappoint. Its rolled leading edge minimizes digging, and a cambered midsole makes consistent ballstriking a breeze.
Who It’s For: Players who like the teardrop shape and superb feel.
Specs: Comes in six lofts (50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°) with either a Nippon or True Temper steel shaft.
