Miura’s forging techniques rearrange the molecular structure of the mild steel in a pattern that is uniform throughout the hitting area of the club in a manner that is unique to his clubs. This tightness in the grain structure of the metal is what gives Miura made clubs the controlled, soft feel that other manufacturers cannot achieve.

Miura also uses a proprietary “spin welding” process to produce the industries’ most consistent hosel. This unique procedure ensures that the bore depths and hosel heights are identical on every Miura made head and the shaft of every club will be perfectly centered.

Miura Satin Wedge – Series 1957 “Y” and “C” Grinds

“Special Grind” by Yoshitaka Miura

The special grind on this wedge was done by Yoshitaka Miura, himself a master craftsman after more than 20 years of training under his father, Katsuhiro Miura at the family forging facility in Himeji, Japan. The ‘Y’ on the sole not only represents Yoshitaka’s mark on the club, but also signifies the special and limited production of this club.

The Miura family’s (Katsuhiro and his sons Yoshitaka and Shinei) research for the Series 1957 Y wedge included trips to North America and Europe to study a variety of playing conditions and turf structures. The family’s goal was to create a wedge with the heal and toe relief that many golfers are now looking for, but at the same time not compromise the basic fundamentals of a high performance golf club. The challenge was to find the perfect balance between the heal and toe relief and the rolled trailing edge on the sole, which Yoshitaka has done.

When this “special grind” is combined with the unique characteristics that separate Miura clubs from all others, such as density of grain structure, balance and feel, the result is a wedge that is eminently playable in a broad range of conditions. The feel and precision of the Series 1957 Y wedge can’t be explained in words, it must be experienced to be understood.

    I have the Wedge Series satin finish 54 and 58. They are heavier than my previous Cleveland tour action 900s. The forged feel is amazing and the extra weight makes them easier to hit. Excellent spin with one or two hops and then stop without chewing up the ball. Highly recommended especially if you can find them slightly used.
