OUR TAKE

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.

FITTER COMMENTS

“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.”
