Miura’s new MC-501 and 601 irons, Tour Series wedges, KM-009 putter (2018 PGA Show Demo Day)

Published

on

Miura, the company known best for its forged irons, unveiled two new irons at the 2018 PGA Show Demo Day, along with new Tour Series wedges and a KM-009 putter.

MC-501 irons

According to the company, the MC-501 irons — the MC stands for “muscle cavity” — are like a mix between blade irons and cavity backs; they have the look of a blade, but also have wider soles and longer blade lengths for greater forgiveness. Actually, a Miura representative told us the 501 irons, which are forged from 1020 carbon steel, have the longest blade lengths and widest soles of any iron Miura has ever made. We’re told, however, that all of the lofts are in line with other Miura blades, as is the expected launch and spin the irons produce.

The MC-501 irons will launch in North America on February 20, and they will sell for $260 per club head.

IC-601 irons

Miura’s new IC-601 irons (4-PW) — they are the iron-set extensions of Miura’s previous ICL-601 driving irons — have hollow cavities for more ball speed, and they have stainless steel back weights to drive CG rearward and raise MOI. They’re made from 455 carpenter steel and will sell for $280 per head.

Tour Series wedges

The first milled wedges from Miura, called the Tour Series, have progressive center of gravities (higher CG in the higher lofts and lower CG in the lower lofts) throughout the line. They’re forged from 1020 carbon steel, and have C-grinds with soles that are narrow in the lower lofts, and get progressively wider as loft goes up.

The Tour Series wedges are available in 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree options, and will sell for $280 each.

KM-009 putter

Lastly, Miura unveiled a new KM-009 putter that, according to Miura, has an enhanced milling process, upgraded graphics, and a lengthened hosel for a bit more face-balance than previous KM putters. A Miura representative estimates the toe hang has gone from 60 degrees down to 45 degrees due to the hosel adjustment.

Available on February 20, the putters will sell for $400 apiece.

    Tour Series milled wedges look good – need more info. I don’t have the speed for the blades

    Awesome gear. Just so damn expensive amd recently I owned a raw set of Tourney Blades. I was not impressed with them at all. I have had better feeling irons at 13 the price. Don’t hate me for saying this fellas!

      You’re not wrong. The Giken stuff feels way better than the Tournament Blade IMO.
