The Mizuno MP R12 wedge is the first round shape wedge from Mizuno for a while following the recent tear-drop T10 and T11 wedges.
The Mizuno R12 wedge continues the excellent good looks of previous versions and as usual they feel a little lighter than most of the competition. The feel from the forged heads is excellent and we like the different depth of grooves in the gap wedges to channel out grass and water from full shots.
Mizuno wedges usually seem to site a little tighter to the ground and the R12 wedge is no exception with a wide range of low bounce lofts. Combined with some lovely sole grinds this makes opening the face or playing from tight lies very easy and the Mizuno R12 is one of the best wedges in the market for this. Well worth trying.
