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. 😀

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

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.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
