Need To Know

Quad Cut Grooves ensures solid spin rates; Rounded teardrop design
Little too head heavy
Our score:
Overall: 
4
PRICE: £100.00 YEAR: from 2013

The MP-T4 packs Mizuno’s advantages of Grain Glow Forged feel and distance control into a soft edged, re-worked teardrop profile. Feedback from the Tour led Mizuno's R&D department to create a sole grind with softer edges.

The traditional, rounded teardrop head is a nice touch. There’s a relatively thick topline on offer but it’s by no means off-putting. The back of the club is neat without being glitzy, as the black line of the Quad Cut Grooves runs through the middle.

As they keep telling us, ‘nothing feels like a Mizuno’, and that's exactly what I got from this single 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel billet. Balls stick to the face at impact and there’s a good sense of balance to the Spinner shaft. A little too head heavy, though.

Performance-wise, there's good turf interaction as the club cuts through the grass. Quad Cut Groove concept feels suitable for these full 100-yard shots and helps compress the ball better.

While spin rate is good, it's not as strong as I initially hoped, especially given this wedge screams stopping power.

Verdict

Classic looks, terrific feel and strong performance. At the top end of the wedge market.

Pro Verdict (Tom Hayward)

Big fan of this. I love the teardrop finish and the fact it produces very consistent yardages. Again, I’d like to see a higher spin rate but it's certainly above average.
