Forum Thread of the Day: “Miura MC 501 Blades – Best looking clubs ever?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from psgolf23, who has fallen hard for the aesthetics of Miura’s MC 501 blades and asked fellow GolfWRX members for any insight into the performance of the irons. While pretty much all agreeing to a man about the beauty of the clubs, some of our members were able to provide some detailed feedback on the performance of the blades, as well as some great photos.

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.

  • bfizzy: “Just got my set from Peoples, and he is awesome to work with. The irons are awesome, I’m coming from P750s, and these things are butter compared to that. They aren’t Uber soft, but you definitely get a lot more feedback from them. Clean setup with a tad more aggressive offset progression from PW down to the long irons. To be fair I was fit into the irons, so they suit me, but I don’t think one would be disappointed with these in the bag.”
  • swanry30: “Very limited time with my raw mc-501…they don’t/won’t disappoint.  Hands down best irons i’ve owned (which is saying something given how many specialized sets over the years). Dispersion is crazy good.”
  • CrazyCoolie: “I got a set about a month ago.  But with winter I have only been able to hit them on a trackman indoors.  SO far they are amazing.  I know this has been pointed out numerous times, but my dispersion is so tight with these irons.  Going to FL for a week after xmas and cannot wait to get them out on the course.”
  • ghoonk: “I game the MC501 with black TT AMT White shafts – surprisingly forgiving (compared to my MB-5003, which are larger heads, IMO). Butter soft on good hits, and I love the thin top line. The chunky top line of the P790 made it a no-go for me. I’m currently eyeing a set of Honma Tour World blades which are as good as, if not better than these.”

    No. The shape from the top lines aren’t as clean as some other blades, these are more offset than others.
    The TM TP MB Smoke and not Smoke (that Martin Kaymer played for years) are the best looking irons ever. These Miuras are a poor replica with the similar pointed middle muscle

    The beauty of these clubs is breathtaking to the max. I fell in love with their look and immediately bought a set (3-PW) and took them to bed with me. My life has meaning now that I have found the clubs for a lifetime of soft buttery pleasure. 😀

New 2020 Cleveland Launcher UHX irons feature a combination of hollow and cavity back irons

Published

on

Cleveland Golf has introduced Cleveland Launcher UHX irons, which incorporate hollow back long irons with cavity back short irons.

The unique approach looks to provide maximum distance and forgiveness in the long irons (4- 7-irons) through lower and deeper weighting in the hollow back construction while focusing on precision and control from the 8-iron to PW with a cavity back design in this addition to the 2020 Cleveland iron lineup.

The new additions also contain a high-strength, HT1770M variable steel face insert in each long iron. According to the company, improved mass distribution in the face insert is designed to deliver higher ball speeds and more distance on each shot.

Speaking on the new Launcher UHX irons, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland, Dustin Brekke stated

“This combination of cavity back and utility irons into one set offers the perfect blend of distance and accuracy. A new variable face pattern delivers more distance due to hotter faces with better mass distribution.”

Both the hollow and cavity back irons feature a V-Shaped Sole which is designed to offer both improved speed retention and forgiveness through improved turf interaction. The company’s Tour Zip Grooves and enhanced Laser Milling aim to provide maximum spin on each Launcher UHX short iron.

Arriving in both left and right-handed options, Cleveland’s Launcher UHX Irons officially launch on October 4 and are priced at $799.99 MAP for a seven-piece steel set and $899.99 MAP for a seven-piece graphite set.

Cleveland Golf has unveiled new game improvement Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo irons which feature a new “thinner, hotter” turbocharged face insert designed for more speed and forgiveness.

Along with the turbocharged face insert, the new additions also contain a fully hollow construction. The design of the fully hollow construction allows for optimized sole weighting and bids to offer players both a higher launch and maximum forgiveness.

Speaking on the new Launcher HB Turbo Irons, Dustin Brekke, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland stated

“These irons allow game improvement players the ability to get the ball into the air better than any iron on the market. Now with a thinner, hotter face, the Launcher HB Turbo Irons give you a half club more distance over the previous generation.”

The irons feature a redesigned HiBore Crown, which pushes the center of gravity low and deep within the base, a placement which is designed to allow golfers to launch their ball higher.

The clubs also contain progressive shaping throughout, as the brand seeks to provide players with a smooth transition by offering maximum forgiveness on long irons to optimal control on short irons.
