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. 😀

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

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.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
