VERDICT Al­ter­ing the head shape by loft isn’t an aes­thetic ex­er­cise here. Rather, it was done to cal­i­brate how each loft presents dif­fer­ent per­for­mance re­quire­ments. As loft in­creases, more mass is placed towards the top of the blade. That raises the cen­tre of grav­ity, which yields two things most play­ers pre­fer in their higher-lofted wedges: flight con­trol and in­creased spin. Other pop­u­lar Mizuno fea­tures in­clude grooves and sole grinds that change with loft, and a forged car­bon­steel de­sign that uses boron for dura­bil­ity.
