Anyone know if Mizuno will ever start making pitching wedges that match their other wedges?  I like the idea of my pitching wedge being a "wedge" not a 10 iron, however I attached to the Mizunos too much to jump to the Vokeys.

Well with the way lofts are going these days, your PW is really an old 9-iron, so just pretend it says "9" on it.

I wish Mizuno made a 48* wedge in any of their models, it would just be the perfect solution to the "bulky" PW problem... You could try bending a 50* wedge strong but then I worry about the really low bounce that would accompany it.

Well I've been told that Mizuno will be offering wedges soon in every degree from 48*-60*

Why not pick up one of the new Mp-4 pitching wedges? I heard they were more compact than previous iterations.

I'm glad to hear other people find Mizuno PWs to be out of sorts. Last time I actually played Mizuno irons was a set of MP14s and the PW got replaced by a 48* Cleveland wedge. The PW in every Mizuno set just looks like a shovel compared tithe rest of the irons. And I have a tough time shelling out the kind of cash Mizuno asks then spending another $100 to replace the PW.

You can order your set without the PW if you'd like. Then get the PW you prefer so cost should be roughly the same

I never really understood the whole Mizuno PW "shovel" thing.  I've played multiple Mizuno and Titleist sets and a set of Hogan's and Pings and got along just fine with all the PWs.

Agreed. Though this is the first I've heard of it.

The last thing that I would call my MP-69 wedge is a "shovel"...lol.

TP4 wedges can be ordered as low as 50 degrees and you can bend them and take up to 2 degrees off.  That 50 degree wedge can become a pitching wedge with 48 degrees of loft with relative ease.

You know, it is funny you mention the Hogan's too. Not an expert here, but I am guessing (looking at a lot of photos of older clubs) the slightly larger profile of the Mizuno pw's is a holdover from older overall designs where pitching wedges...were actually wedges...and used as such rather than the disguised 9 irons they are now. The pitching wedge itself used to be the only, or next to last, wedge that golfers traditionally carried. Doesn't it make sense that the shape back then would have been slightly larger due to the varied types of use vs. simply using it for full swings now? I am guessing this is a matter of past catching up to present.
