Luke Donald using Mizuno's new MP-T11 wedges
Luke Donald is one of the best bunker players in the world. This season he's playing with new wedges, changing from Mizuno's MP-T10 to the company's newest model, the MP-T11.
Like its predecessor, the MP-T11 wedges are forged from 1025 carbon steel and feature Mizuno's Quad Cut Groove technology. The company says the process allows Mizuno to precisely control the width, depth, draft angle and shoulder radius of each groove more precisely.
When Golf Magazine asked several "regular Joes" to try the MP-T11 wedges, they said that the clubs seemed to produce as much spin with their new, USGA-conforming grooves as old, big-grooved wedges did. Testers also noted that the clubs easily handled a variety of lies and were extremely versatile, providing excellent distance control on chips and pitches along with a soft feel.
The only knock against the MP-T11 wedges heard was voiced by a few testers who said the clubs felt a little light and were not as forgiving as some other wedges on the market.
