Mizuno has unveiled a new ES21 range of wedges with super stable design and more central sweet spot. 

Founded in Osaka, Japan, in 1906, Mizuno has long held an enviable industry and tour-wide reputation for crafting the very finest wedges in the game, offering golfers the ultimate blend of looks, feel, control and consistency around the green and on shorter approach shots.

For 2020, Mizuno has unveiled the ES21 range of wedges, engineered to help players generate the consistent spin rates needed for a more effective short game.

Traditional wedges have a sweet spot that is slightly to the heel side, 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 a surprisingly narrow top line to give the confidence-inspiring look of a players’ wedge at address.

Perfected for over 50 years at one factory in Hiroshima, Japan, Mizuno’s forging expertise is revered for its consistency of manufacture, distance control and incredible feedback. This reputation may be most commonly associated with Mizuno irons but the precision and feel of Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forged HD process offers scope for even more payback in the wedges where touch and feel are most critical.

“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,” said Mizuno’s Director of R&D David Llewellyn.

Mizuno has strived to “create the best products for consumers” for 114 years, and the new ES21 wedge adheres firmly to that original spirit and desire, while offering the best performance benefits that modern technology can bring.

RRP: £155
