MIZUNO T7 WEDGES Available now; RRP: $239 each; mizuno.com.au thegear LEARN MORE ABOUT MIZUNO'S T7 WEDGES IN THIS VIDEO. A BLASTOFBORON SPECIFICATIONS: T7 wedges are available in men’s right- and left-handed and ladies right- handed models in either a White Satin or Blue IP finish. Loft options range from 45° to 62°. M IZUNO’S new T7 WEDGES represent the company’s first Grain Flow Forged wedges infused with boron, while also featuring precision-milled Quad Cut grooves for exceptionally long-lasting spin control. T7 wedge users can expect significantly enhanced groove durability thanks to the small infusion of boron within its steel. “The one drawback with a traditional soft forged wedge is that the grooves compress more quickly than a harder cast wedge,” says David Llewellyn, Mizuno’s director of R&D. “A very small trace of boron in the steel means we can not only now maintain that forged feel and precision, but also the performance of the grooves and the wedge’s stopping power over a longer period of time. Our only concern with using boron was whether the feel would be compromised – Luke Donald was the best tester for that issue and he asked to put them in his bag after one session.” The spin control performance of the face has already been enhanced by a new, more precise milling tool that allows the loft- specific Quad Cut grooves to be cut as tight as possible to R&A and USGA limits for even more spin. Those loft-specific grooves are wider and shallower in the higher lofts from 54° to 62°, then deeper and narrower in the lower lofts from 45° to 53°, allowing golfers to maximise spin on both full and partial shots. The grooves aren’t the only things that vary according to loft, with the pitching wedge lofts from 45° to 48° featuring a straighter leading edge and topline for fuller shots, graduating into a more rounded profile in the highest lofts from 58° to 62°. Those higher lofts also boast more visible grinds that narrow the sole to deliver crisp ball- striking from a wide variety of lies. E
