What we say...

Mizuno S18 Wedge Review: You should know

A midsize rounded profile gives the ultimate short game performance say Mizuno. Weight is moved higher in the blade (by fattening up the top line) in the higher lofts to increase spin consistency when shots are hit higher in the face, which Mizuno say is common with more extreme lofts. Sole grind, profile, top line and groove depth are loft specific to tailor performance to the conditions each is typically used from.

Mizuno S18 Wedge Review: We say

Mizuno are much more well known for their forged irons than their wedges, yet they’ve made some cracking wedge models overs the years. The S-18s are a huge improvement over Mizuno’s T7s (from last year), as the heads have a really nice non-offensive shape and the stealth Black IP finish hides the extra size beautifully. Our test pro thought the feel was a bit firmer than some, but he loved the decent amount of tech on offer along with how the sculpted back brings a degree of forgiveness to the party. If you’re after a very specific loft and bounce combination the S-18’s 29 options should satisfy all comers. By posting 7222 rpm of backspin (averaged between the three testers) the S-18 was right on our test average.

Mizuno S18 Wedge Review: Verdict

We’re not convinced huge numbers golfers will pick Mizuno wedges over a Vokey, Callaway or Cleveland but for golfers who do buy them to match a set of Mizuno irons, they’re extremely good. Simon was the biggest fan reckoning the S-18 was amongst his favourite wedge head shapes of 2018.
