Published

on

Miura Golf has announced the launch of their newest line of cavity back irons, the Miura CB-301.

Hand-forged in Miura’s Himeji, Japan factory, the company claims that the Miura CB-301 is the longest forged cavity back iron that they have yet to produce.

Speaking on the new additions, Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf, stated

“We are excited to bring a new level of distance and performance to Miura Golf. With the CB-301, we’ve created the finest forged cavity back in Miura’s history.”

The new irons from Miura feature a greater offset and larger sweet spot than previous additions, for improved accuracy and distance on shots,  and aims to offer golfers an iron with the feel and playability of a players iron, with the forgiveness and distance to improve golfers of all levels.

Each club features a variable sole and cavity thickness which aims to optimize the center of gravity. Through this optimization of the COG, the CB-301 aims to deliver more forgiveness while maintaining excellent feel on all shots.

Earlier this month, World Number 57 Abraham Ancer notified his followers on social media that he would be gaming Miura’s new CB-301 irons, submitting this post on Instagram.

Until now, the company had not produced a fully forged cavity back since 2011, and speaking concerning the new CB-301, Jason Rutkoski, executive vice president of Miura Golf said

“We set out to design a golf club that could be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels. The CB-301 takes the most innovative design elements of our traditional models and blends them with modern techniques, resulting in the longest iron we’ve ever produced.”

The new CB-301 comes plated in nickel chrome with a satin finish and is available to purchase now from MiuraGolf.com. Prices start from $1,960 per set, and you have the opportunity to choose the head, shaft and grip of your choice through Miura’s custom club e-commerce service.

    Saw them yesterday, looked good but not a way Miura has historically gone in terms of offset, jacked lofts, wider soles.
    Also, the article says its their first forged CB since 2011, well, what do they call the CB57 model from just a coupe of years ago?

    I have them all! The 202 is my favorite. No offset, razor thin top line, and narrow sole. Dam near impossible to find a set with conforming grooves . The next *uckstick that complains about the spin weld hosel is going to get strangled by my hand going through their computer screen. Without the hosel, the club sets deeper in the dye and the final strike is delivered with much more force allowing the grain structure to be even tighter. Most of you morons still don’t know the difference between SL and circle K either.

    Miura is no longer Miura. Not sure if Miura buyers are looking for forgiveness. Their older stuff was way better.

    These look incredible. I’m not sure about a 44-degree PW for these, but whatever. I guess they are easy to bend.

    Lofts for 4-PW are 22º 25º 28º 32º 36º 40º 44º

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.”
