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. 😀

Forum Thread of the Day: “European Tour looking into an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie from the BMW International Open”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day surrounds an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie, Dave McNeilly, which occurred on Sunday at the European Tour’s BMW International Open. After hitting a shot in the water on 18, Wallace appeared irate with his caddie, which incensed many of our members, as well as plenty of social media users.

According to bunkered.co.uk, the European Tour stated in an email to the publication that they are looking into the incident over allegations of abuse.

A limited number of clips of the incident have surfaced online.

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.

  • buckeyefl: “Sky Sports analyst Rich Beem: ‘I’m sorry, but I just don’t enjoy watching that. I know you’re intense but get over yourself.’”
  • Steele47: “Just looked at Wallace’s twitter. He congratulates the winner Andrea Pavan and also noteworthy, makes a point to compliment Pavan’s caddie. LOL.”
  • OldTomMorris: “It’s a pattern with Wallace that he goes after his caddy so often like this and golf commentators, analysts even fans have picked up on this. There has to be a base level of respect and decency; it appears that Wallace often falls short of that.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “He’s getting roasted on his own Twitter account. People don’t seem that amused.”

WRX Spotted: Ping Glide 3.0, Glide 3.0 Eye2 wedges

Published

on

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and in the case of the golf world, we had been hearing rumblings of a new Ping Glide series for a while (since the introduction of the Blueprint irons, at least).

This week, at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, we now have an idea of exactly what’s coming with the beginning of Glide 3.0 wedges tour seeding.

Like a lot of initial releases, we don’t have the full tech breakdown, but I’ll make a few assumptions

  • Material: Based on the popularity of the i210s and the feel they offer golfers (so soft), the new Glide 3.0s are made from the same steel and utilize the same 50-percent softer Elastomer CTP.
  • Hydropearl 3.0? A finish designed to repel water and greatly improve consistency from the rough and wet conditions, its been working on irons and why stop there?
  • COG Shifting: Looking at the cavity, Ping engineers have been playing with a LOT of mass around this head. That is one of the cool things about wedges is, beyond the putter, they are the heaviest heads in the set. More mass equals more COG relocation. It’s noticeable in the comparison below.

Notice the back of the top line

There is a lot more mass higher in the LW vs PW

  • Sole grinds: This is where Ping continues to step up there game in the wedge category. And like previous families of wedges, there appears to be a lot of options in design. We should see some TS options in the bags for players at the Open Championship if it’s dry and firm.

Beyond grind options, we also have totally different head options with a Glide 3.0 Eye2. Let’s be honest, this makes a TON of sense since other companies have been borrowing design traits from the Eye2 for the last couple years for their wedges. Why wouldn’t Ping utilize its own already popular design and update it for modern turf conditions?

We will have to wait and see how close we are to what the tech specs will be but like with most things Ping, the release to tour is usually a tell-tale sign that you should be seeing these in store, on shelves and ready to pre-order very soon.
