SPECS: 3-PW with custom shaft options.
RECOMMENDATION: Targets low- and mid-handicap players who desire a very soft, forged feel, with easy turf interaction and some added forgiveness.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Precision forging from premium carbon steel; low CG location due to 20g of repositioned sole weight; increased sole width and Y-grind for enhanced turf interaction.
Miura’s facility in Japan produces ultra-premium quality forgings that are known for their soft, responsive feel. The MC-501 carries on the tradition with the goal of offering Miura irons’ typical attributes with enhanced forgiveness and playability. By the looks of it, they succeeded— the MC-501’s lower CG, longer blade length, and wider sole combine to make a more playable traditional forging.
“Still best for better players but can be played by a range of handicaps with the proper fit. Good launch characteristics on solid strikes and reasonable forgiveness on mis-hits.”
