Check out Miura’s yet-to-be-released Proto cavity-back irons

Miura's yet-to-be-released Proto irons.

Not everyone can play a set of muscleback blades. But that doesn’t mean it’s necessary to settle for an iron profile that resembles a shovel.

Miura’s unreleased Proto irons appear to fall somewhere in-between a better-player model and something that should appeal to the mid-handicapper who’s a somewhat consistent ball-striker.

A closer look at Miura's Proto irons.

With the company’s MC-501 blade and CB-301 cavity-back making up the current lineup — the hollow-bodied IC-601 is another option — it’s very likely the new Proto model will offer a more compact profile than the 301 with less offset and moderate sole width.

Miura's Proto irons feature a playable sole width.

The Proto musclepad design looks like an updated version of what’s currently found on the MB-5005 model played by Abraham Ancer. But with a more traditional cavity-back design, the Proto should provide significantly more forgiveness compared to the MB-5005.

With the first set of Proto irons out in the open, it’s likely more details regarding specs and availability should be coming in the not-too-distant future.
