Mizuno MP T-11 wedges review

Mizuno MP T-11 wedge
Golf Monthly Verdict

A beautiful-looking headshape that can be opened up or played square to produce impressive results. Plenty of spin despite the conforming grooves. Players lacking in confidence will be intimidated by the sharp leading edge and overall compact design of the head. The 360-grind that works so well on Mizuno's latest MP irons also excels here, allowing you to play a wide range of shots with confidence. Both finishes look superb and, when combined with a premium ball, the feel off the face is second to none. The less-lofted wedges produce an excellent flight that does not balloon on full shots. PGA Pro verdict Another top product from Mizuno. The beautiful finish and the fine milling across the whole face produced some great feel and spin on all types of shot. The teardrop head shape was good and the 56° model I tried was great from both the sand and turf. The strike was softer than I expected, but was a good feel, especially on tricky, delicate lob shots around the green (John Jacobs).

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The forged-steel heads in the Mizuno MP T-11 wedges have been made softer to help fight against the effect that the new groove rule has had on spin. Wider, shallower grooves are a feature on wedges between 56° & 64° to assist traction on shots where the ball cannot fully compress. Wedges with less loft have narrower, deeper grooves designed for fuller, squarer strikes.

These wedges will suit confident chippers wanting added versatility and players who like a classic teardrop head shape.

Lofts available - 50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°, 64°

Finish options - White satin and black nickel

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."


Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
