New Mizuno T24 Soft Satin Wedge
Who’s It For?
Mizuno’s forged irons generally get the spotlight, but its forged wedges need some recognition as well. The new T24 wedges from Mizuno feature the same forging process used in its irons, but with several other technologies specifically designed to sharpen any golfer’s short game. Of note, the T24 wedges are available in five distinct sole grinds that will benefit different types of swings. The S grind is the highest bounce and offers limited relief, which will work best for golfers with a steep angle of attack on full swings. The D grind offers mid bounce and moderate relief and will appeal to a wide range of golfers. The C grind offers generous relief and mid/high bounce for golfers that come in steep or play on soft turf that like to manipulate the clubface. The V grind is an aggressive relief offering for golfers needing high bounce. And finally, the X grind features low bounce and aggressive relief for golfers playing on firm conditions that need to manipulate the clubface.
The Tech Story
The Mizuno T24 wedges are forged in Hiroshima, Japan through Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forging process, where Mizuno irons have been produced since 1968. For these wedges, Mizuno produced one-piece HD boron forgings that look and feel incredible. There’s also a new Quad-Cut Groove design that optimizes six groove geometry parameters to deliver maximum spin. There are 15 grooves on 46-54 degree loft options for better performance on full swings, while the 56-60 degree loft options include 17 grooves for help on partial shots. The tapered blade design creates incremental vertical MOI for more consistent feel and spin. And of course, the HydroFlow Micro Grooves are laser etched to improve performance in wet conditions. The T24 wedges are available in three finishes: Satin Chrome, Denim Copper, or Raw.
