Mizuno S18 Wedge Review
These wedges are aimed at a wide spectrum of golfers that enjoy a blend of soft feel, control and versatility.
Replacing the S5, the S18 wedges are very much progressive, loft-specific designs. The lower lofts used for full shots incorporate narrower and deeper Quad Cut Grooves as well as a lower CG while the higher lofts feature wider and shallower grooves as well as a higher CG for more consistent levels of spin.
The S18 wedges are Grain Flow Forged with Boron-infused into the steel to enhance groove durability. The Black IP finish is designed to wear away gently over time to reveal the durable chrome beneath.
How we tested
We were given a 51 and 58° in both the chrome and black IP finishes respectively and tested them over a prolonged period on the course.
The S18 is a touch smaller than the S5 but still generous in size and still has a rounded, tear drop profile.
