Mizuno T22 Wedge Review
With over 50 years of refining, the Grain Flow forging process in Hiroshima, Japan, Mizuno’s wedges are unrivalled for touch and feel around the green. Properties best demonstrated in Mizuno’s T-Series wedges, developed in the hands of former world #1 Luke Donald.
The T22 wedges will be available in a Denim Copper, Satin Chrome and Raw finish along with four different sole grinds for varying techniques and conditions. With there being multiple sole grinds it would be recommended for anyone purchasing a T22 wedge to be custom fit into the correct option for you.
Mizuno has been using a one-piece Grain Flow Forged using HD Boron, at Mizuno’s iconic facility in Hiroshima, where Mizuno produces their irons, since 1968. The new wedges feature a microlayer of copper beneath the nickel-chrome delivering an extra split-second of control at impact.
"I’d look at the T22 as a great balance between the ultra-classic looks of the older T7 and the performance traits of the T20," says Chris Voshall of Mizuno Golf. “We’ve managed to bevel the top edge in a way to retain the performance of the T20’s tapered blade. But keep the more traditional look of the T7. Both models had a following for very different reasons.
Mizuno has bevelled the top edge of the wedge to make it appear slimmer and more compact at address. The spin-weighted blade design, created by tapering the upper portion of the blade, helps create more spin and a penetrating trajectory.
Mizuno’s HydroFlow Micro Grooves deliver great wet weather performance as they’re laser etched to release moisture and reduce spin drop off, while the Quad Cut milled, and loft specific, grooves are cut into Boron infused steel to offer a longer effective lifespan.
