Mizuno vs Miura Wedges

4 posts in this topic

I've been playing Mizuno wedges for a long time now after switching from Clevelands.

But recently to complete my Miura bag, I was going for the C-grind and Y-grind.

I play a 60*5 Mizuno wedge around the green and from 90 yards in and I love it.

I was expecting a lot when I was testing the Y-grind, and for me, it feels as if the Miura wedge, (like my K-grind)

is heavier, doesn't feel as good as the mizuno and it doesn't have as much stopping power.

As much as I want to have a full set of Miuras , I just feel that the Mizunos work better for very touchy shots and off tight lie full shots.

Whereas the Miuras are better for sand shots, deep roughs, due to the weight, like my K-Grind. So more they are more of a specialty club.

Can anyone with more experience with all these clubs share your thoughts?

I really enjoy my Y grind Miura 49.

But on the higher lofts, I'll go with you on the Mizuno spin. I owned an MP T11 60-08 and it had strong brakes in comparison to Miura. At the same time, I want more bounce than 8, and returned the Mizuno. But the 54-58 all had greater bounce options.

At the same time, I had and have a Miura K-Grind 56 - great out of bunkers. The 59-15 C Grind is also a fine wedge... But I think Vokey has better grinds ... and I don't know what Mizuno is doing with their recent wedges - the MP R has weird sole grinds and the new ones look generic. I'm not certain what to think ... other than when the Miuras wear out this summer, I'm going to get fit for Edels.

I'll weigh my 56 and 60 Mizunos...

Well I found out that my Mizuno 56 is 455g and my Miura K grind is 485g, that's a huge difference, specially since the C and Y grinds are both the same as in 485g.

I'm going to try counter weighing the K-grind and see how it swings before I order a custom C - Y - Grind.

I truly like the feel of the Miura wedges... but again... it all comes down to stopping power for me.

    • I started playing when I was 3 or 4yrs old, I don't really know.  But I was breaking 90 by age 14.  
    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
