Re: Best iron out of the rough

Mizuno claims their bevelled leading edge helps get through the rough, and I'm wondering if this is true and if there are other clubs that do the same.
BTW, this is pretty thick, dense rough I'm talking about. Since we've had so much rain in the North East the last couple of months, the stuff is growing like crazy!
