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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best players iron on the market now?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from drvrwdge and delves into the subject of 2019 players irons. Drvrwdge asks fellow members which players iron they rate as the best of this year, with Srixon’s Z785 proving to be very popular amongst WRXers.

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.

  • swoooshlt: “I’m nowhere near the player I once was, but the Z785 is giving back some of that confidence……, and the feel is BRILLIANT!”
  • KC13: “MP-20 MMC all day.”
  • hypergolf: “I tried all the new iron releases as I am in the market to replace my Mizuno MP60s (TT DG S300). After hours of search, different shaft and head combinations I am going to go with Titleist T100 with Project X 6.0. Historically I never liked Titleist irons and was always a Mizuno iron player, but this year the feel and performance in T100 won me over…”
  • dalillama47: “Z785’s are my vote. Yes, I do play them. I can play anything I want. Between feel, forgiveness and the way they go through the turf, all a tough combo to beat. I’m not saying they are the best, but hard to believe there is anything much better.”
