The Mizuno ES21 wedges have been designed with a perfectly centred sweet spot. GolfReviewsGuide.com takes a look at what to expect.
In the ES21, Mizuno have designed a wedge that helps control spin rates with a multi-piece design that includes a high-toe profile.
The key design feature is a centralised ‘sweet spot’ in the wedges, in preference to the more traditional heel side, for a more consistent strike and distance.
What Mizuno say about the ES21 wedges:
“Controlling spin rates amongst a batch of similar wedge shots is one of the most significant factors in building an effective short game.
The ES21 wedges make that a reality by incorporating a higher, more central sweet spot and stable design – not just elevating spin, but maintaining it shot for shot.
“Made possible by a multi-piece stainless steel construction and Grain Flow Forged face packed into a versatile high toe profile with surprisingly narrow top line.
“We’ve taken a very Mizuno type approach to the ES21 by keeping the top line very sleek – despite the technology inside.
“Our testing showed that there’s a lot of good golfers out there who will be surprised at the gains they could make by having more predictable spin numbers.”
