Our Review:The S5 has a rounder, larger and more forgiving shape than its predecessor. For that reason it might appeal to a broader range of players, but this forged model still offers the Mizuno subtleties elite players prefer. This includes 10 stock and 15 custom lofts, five sole grinds, and grooves matched to how shots are played by loft. Lower lofts have narrower grooves for maximizing full shots. Higher lofts have wider grooves for better friction on partial shots.
Specs: 10 (50-60 degrees, 5 sole grinds)
