Mizuno launches ES21 wedges

Mizuno’s new range of ES21 wedges feature a highly stable head design and a more centrallylocated sweet spot to help a wide variety of players generate the consistent spin rates needed for a more effective short game.

Traditional wedges have a sweet spot that is positioned slightly in the heel, making it hard for many players to find consistency. But the ES21 wedges feature a higher, more central sweet spot which, combined with a super stable design, delivers a squarer strike and greater levels of more controllable spin.

A multi-piece stainless steel construction features a hollow body for a higher and deeper centre of gravity, while the high toe and low heel keep the wedges extremely stable when the face is opened.

ES21 wedges feature Quad-Cut Grooves – ultra-precise CNC milled grooves cut into durable Grain Flow Forged Boron infused steel. In addition, Hydroflow Micro Grooves, which are vertically etched, help release moisture and maintain spin even in damp conditions.

The ES21 wedges are available with either a standard or wide sole option, each model featuring what Mizuno is calling a ‘surprisingly narrow’ top line to give the confidence-inspiring look of a players’ wedge at address.

David Llewellyn, Mizuno’s Director of R&D, said: “We’ve taken a very Mizuno-type approach to the ES21 by keeping the topline 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,” said Mizuno’s Director of R&D David Llewellyn.

Available in lofts ranging from 54, 56, 58 and 60° in the black finish in right hand only, they are fitted with KBS Hi-Rev 110 Wedge Flex shaft in black ion and a Lamkin ST hybrid grip as standard.

They go on sale in October with an RRP of £155. £155.
