Miura Launches MG Collection Irons: CB-2008, CB-1008 and MB-5005

Published

on

Miura Golf has launched three new iron models in North America: its CB-2008, the CB-1008 and the MB-5005.

The three irons are part of Miura’s MG, or “Miura-Giken” Collection, which like the company’s recently announced Hayate drivers and fairway woods were previously only available in Asia. The new launch unifies the Miura product line internationally, a key aspect of the company’s recent re-branding efforts. It also sets the stage for a worldwide launch of entirely new Miura product, which is expected in 2018.

In North America, Miura is known primarily for its one-piece forged irons, specifically its blade and blade-like models that target better players. The expansion of the MG Collection gives North American golfers access to two additional better-player irons, as well a mid-sized, multi-material forged iron that can offer golfers additional distance and forgiveness. Learn more about each of the irons below.

Miura MG Collection: CB-2008

The CB-2008 irons have the widest sole of the company’s MG Collection irons (its 20-millimeters wide on the 7 iron), as well as a multi-material construction. Together, the design offers golfers more distance, more forgiveness and more confidence in their game. Compared to Miura’s Passing Point Neo Genesis PP-9005 irons, the CB-2008 irons will offer golfers a more compact size and appearance, as well as a softer feel.

The CB-2008 long irons (5-8) start as a single billet of carbon steel, which is forged into a shape that becomes the body of the club heads. A 4-millimeter forged club face is then welded to the front of the irons to boost performance (see the photos in the gallery above). The short irons (9, PW) use a one-piece, forged construction.

“The CB 2008 epitomizes how advancements in technology can be delivered to golfers of all skill levels,” says Bill Holowaty, COO of Miura Golf. “The midsize clubhead combines a soft carbon forged face and neck with a composite, pocket cavity back. This design allows for a wider sole, lower center of gravity, larger sweet spot and more forgiveness.”

The CB-2008 irons are available in 5-PW and sell for $339 per club.

Miura MG Collection: CB-1008

Like the CB-2008 irons, the CB-1008 irons offer golfers a wide sole (it’s 19 millimeters in the 7 iron). The difference is that unlike the hollow-cavity CB-2008 irons, CB-1008 irons use a one-piece, forged construction that positions mass directly behind the sweet spot of the irons.

The one-piece design of the CB-2008 irons is intended to mimic the feel of the company’s blade irons, while delivering the higher flight and additional forgiveness of Miura’s more forgiving models like the CB-2008 and PP-9005.

The CB-2008 irons are available in 3-PW and sell for $279 per iron.

Miura MG Collection: MB-5005

Miura’s MG Collection MB-5005 irons look and feel much like the company’s traditional blade irons, the company says, but a unique cavity-back structure allows the irons to offer more forgiveness.

Compared to its traditional blade irons, the cuts and channels on the back of the MB-5005 irons trim approximately 15 grams of weight from design, Miura says. The discretionary mass allowed the company to increase the size as the irons, as well as lower the center of gravity, both of which served to expand the sweet spot of the clubs.

The MB-5005 irons are available in 3-PW and sell for $329 per iron.

      Check out mcmahongolf on Instagram. They’ve got the 5005 and 1008 from all angles. I found the s25c used in these heads to be softer than the steel used in the North American lines.

    Why wouldn’t I just buy the Japanese version from Tour Spec for over half off these listed prices?

    They could do without the ugly MG logo on there and just kept the script-ish Miura. This new logo looks just like the cheap MG Golf products, not something as high quality like these are intended.

        In fairness I didn’t click through the photos. Irons aren’t quite as bad as I initially thought. That logo is rough though. I’m not a looks guy anyway, was really just a random comment, if it plays well (and the steel does look pure) I’d game it in a second.

    Any differences in the manufacturing process between these clubs and those from the JDM?

      They’re the same clubs. New licensing agreement has made it possible for them to distribute and sell them in the US

        They could always distribute in the US but out of BC Canada.

WRX Spotted: Mizuno MP-20 irons, T20 wedge on USGA Conforming list

Published

on

Thanks to WRX Member mrmikeac, we have some photos that confirm the new Mizuno line will, in fact, be the MP20, along with a new T-Series wedge: the T20.

We don’t have details from Mizuno yet beyond the pictures from the USGA’s site, but there appear to be four different models of irons including an SEL (something, something, lefty?) set which is good news for you southpaws.

There has been lots of discussion so far in the forums, along with a speculation piece written by or own Ryan Barath (One Post Many Questions – New Mizuno Speculation).

The models are

MP20 (Blade) 

MP20 MMC (Multi-Material Cavity)

MP20 HMB

Speculated to be Hot Metal Blade thanks to the Chromoloy on the hosel, there are two versions on the USGA list, which could also mean a blended set with solid forged irons in the shorter clubs.

MP20 SEL

T20 wedge

We’re going to have to wait until confirmation from Mizuno to get all the details but join in the discussion in the GolfWRX forums.

Forum Thread of the Day: “New set of irons on a budget of $500-$700?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from GarhawlR who is on the hunt for a new set of irons and is looking for suggestions on how to get the best bang for his buck with a budget of between $500 and $700. Our members disclose their advice for how to go about filling your bag if you’re on a budget.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • rgk5: “Pre-owned Srixon 585 or Wilson Staff W6 will fit the budget. Maltby irons are okay but will have virtually no resale value down the road.”
  • PushDrawFlush: “$500-700 is plenty to find new-to-me forged irons. I’d keep an eye out for some Srixon z745/765 if you want something similar to your MP25s but a little chunkier/more forgiving.”
  • T.B: “Sub 70 and hogans. Maltby makes great clubs. You have a lot of options at that price range. Take your time, and you’ll find something you really want.”
  • revenant: “You should be able to do this without much trouble. My MP-4s (3-PW) were $280 from global golf with minimal face wear (good grooves and no rust/wear spots).”
