Mizuno S5 wedges: What you need to know



Mizuno’s new S5 wedges ($129.99, steel only) will be in stores September 18. They’re available in White Satin (RH or LH) or Blue Ion (RH only) finishes in lofts of 50-62 degrees.

  • Stock Shaft: True Temper’s Dynamic Gold Wedge
  • Stock Swing: Weight: D4

What you need to know

  • The S5 wedges are forged from the company’s 1025E Grain Flow Forged Carbon Steel.


  • They’re larger than the company’s MP-T5 wedges, which were known from their compact size, yet smaller than the company’s JPX wedges. They’ll appear quite similar in size to Cleveland’s wedges.


  • The “T” in Mizuno’s MP-T5 stands for “Teardrop.” The “S” in S5 stands for silhouette, and the wedges have a slightly more rounded shape compared to the MP-T5 design.


  • The S5 wedges use Quad-Cut, loft-specific grooves. The 49-53 degree wedges have narrower, deeper grooves for more consistency on full shots, while the 54-62 degree wedges have wider, deeper grooves for more spin on open-face shots. The faces are also CNC milled for more surface roughness, which creates more spin or lower-speed wedges shots.


  • The higher-lofted S5 wedges (54-62 degrees) are available in two sole grinds — one narrower, one wider. The wider-sole wedges have more bounce, which means they will dig into the ground less than the narrow-sole options. Wide-sole wedges tend to be better for golfers with steeper attack angles, or those who play courses with softer turf conditions.


  • Mizuno will stamp six letters on a custom-ordered wedge for no additional charge, however, increased wait time does apply.

    Is this a typo?

    The 58 comes with either 4 bounce or 16? Uhhh… Really? So really low or really high? What’s wrong with like 12 bounce?

      Bounce makes a wedge more forgiving. Bounce is your friend.

    I don’t see the big deal with them looking like JAWS wedges. Other than those and Ping, most wedges have virtually the same look anyway.

    Blue Irons must be a cultural thing. Not sure that’s going to sell in the States. I’ve been very happy with my T4s (56 & 60).

    If you really look at the two designs the JAWS comparisons are just on the surface. Where the white badges are is not as wide as the area on the JAWS and the weight pad at the top is more compact on the JAWS. An even bigger difference is where the Mizuno logo is. It’s really a deep cavity, on the JAWS that is more of a raised area.

    Uffdah. Was really looking forward to an upgrade on my mp t11s. I think this is my time to step off the MIZZY train. Boron and blue jaws. I think I will upgrade the driver and putter rather than mp25 and s wedges.

    I can see the JAWS look there but that doesn’t mean they play the same JAWS were pretty high bounce wedges.
    I LOVE the blue color I would almost buy them for that reason alone. Mizuno has been turning out some very nice wedges of late. I think they were one of the first ones to use different grooves on different lofts. Now many are doing it I also like the more rounded leading edge these have. Looking forward to a test. Wedges seem to be the hardest clubs to get a feel for in stores. Please make note of how the blue holds up.

    To me, the S5 looks like this Callaway Jaws of old. Almost carbon copy.
