We've already brought you details of Mizuno's stunning new JPX921 irons, and now you can match them up with a lovely set of wedges thanks to the new ES21 range.
Mizuno are regarded across the golfing world for producing some of the best looking and feeling irons on the market, and their wedges follow in the same footsteps as we discovered with the T20 Wedge when we reviewed it last year.
The main bit of technology that the brand are pushing with the new ES21 wedge is the fact that the sweet spot is higher and more central than with other wedges, which tend to be more towards the heel. This, combined with a 'super stable design' results in a more optimal strike and better levels of controllable spin.
The multi-piece, stainless steel construction has a hollow body to provide a higher and deeper centre of gravity, whilst the high toe and low heel shape keeps the wedge stable whilst the face is opened up for extra loft.
On the face, the ES21 wedges feature Quad-Cut grooves. These are ultra-precise, CNC milled grooves, which are cut into the Grain Flow Forged steel.
There are also tiny Hydroflow Micro Grooves, first seen in the T20 Wedge, which are vertically etched down the face to help get rid of moisture from the face, maintaining spin levels even when the conditions are wet.
Both standard and wide sole options are available depending on your preference and home course conditions, whilst Mizuno say that the wedge has a 'surprisingly narrow' top line to inspire confidence to produce precise shots with your scoring clubs.
"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."
- David Llewellyn, Mizuno Director of R&D.
The Mizuno ES21 wedges will be available from 17th September and are priced at £155.
Whilst the quality of Mizuno's irons have never really been in question, it has been a little bit of a struggle to get their other equipment into the hands of Tour players.
In recent years more players have tried putting their drivers into play, but it will be interesting to see how many players will trust these new wedges to perform at the business end of the bag.
