Miura introduces K-Grind 2.0 milled wedge, featuring signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model

Published

on

Miura Golf has today unveiled its latest wedge — the K Grind 2.0, which is designed with the original 1957 K-Grind in mind.

The new K-Grind 2.0 features the signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model. The fluted sole of the new wedge is designed to keep the clubface square at impact, while the three knuckles of the K-Grind 2.0 also aim to deliver increased playability through every type of turf.

The face of the K-Grind 2.0, as well as the grooves, are fully milled in a bid to increase spin on both intermediate and full shots. The club’s sole grind features increased bounce and roll, along with heel and toe relief, which is designed to stabilize the swing of golfers of all skill levels.

Speaking on the new addition, Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf, said

“The K-Grind 2.0 is the next generation of the trusted and distinctive product line that performs dependably through every turf. With this club, we have produced a superior wedge that is just as versatile as it is visually striking.”

The hand-forged K-Grind 2.0 comes available in 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree lofts. The club, which possesses a lie angle of 64 degrees, arrives in a choice of 19 branded shaft options and 14 grips.

The K-Grind 2.0 is available to purchase now from MiuraGolf.com as well as Miura Golf authorized dealers around the globe, with prices starting at $295.

    They say the knuckles help keep the head square. Considering that with foward shaft lean the trailing edge does absolutely nothing on square settup shots, this is totally BS. When opening the face it could help with reducing the surface area that interacts and produce a low bounce reaction. Probably not something you want in a sand club but probably great for a LW. I wouldn’t trust a 1957 idea on grind and bounce considering the way courses we’re kept at the time and the lack of equipment companies knowledge on grind/bounce options. Vokey only in the last few years starting offering multiple grinds due to their knowledge and tour player feedback. We used to grind our own because we as players knew what did what and created what the equipment manufacturers wouldn’t and couldn’t

    What happens when you open the club all the way, do the notches get you stuck

      Not at all. They are tremendous wedges. I have 52, 56, 60 & 64. I’m sure they will occasionally put out a very small number of 64’s. Small numbers like 18 one year and 24 in another year. Not for everyone but well worth looking at and maybe trying. Works of art.

      Looks like you made basically the same comment on the “hottest drivers” post. It’s okay for you to repeat thoughtless responses but not okay for equipment companies to improve on proven successful ideas? Might want to take the log out of your own eye before talking about the speck in someone else’s.

        USGA rules make it IMPOSSIBLE to produce clubs with meaningful performance improvement….are you completely uneducated, or do you work for a golf equipment manufacturer selling snake oil technology stories?

          You’re stupid if you think that moving CG doesn’t affect a club, try hitting a srixon 965 vs a 71 MT forged iron. CG is lower in the other and is easier to launch and mass in different places equals more forgiveness in those areas.

          Maybe stop being stuck in 1965, and learn to adapt with the world.

All-new KBS TD graphite shafts for drivers and woods released

Published

on

kbs-td-shafts

After more than a decade designing steel shafts that have helped revolutionize the golf custom fitting and OEM space, KBS Golf Shafts and designer Kim Braly are going further by officially launching the all new TD Driver and wood shafts.

kbs-td-shafts-2

Until recently KBS’s focus had always been on steel iron and wedge shafts, including the popular KBS Tour, KBS Tour 90, C-Taper, and TourV products. But over the last few years, its line has slowly expanded to graphite hybrid and irons shafts in varying weights and profiles to help create a matrix of shafts that would allow fitters to find a KBS Shaft for almost any situation. The one void in the matrix was driver and wood shafts—but not anymore!

The all new KBS TD (Tour Driver) wood shafts are a huge step forward for a company that has always focused on helping golfers get the most performance out of their clubs. The KBS TD’s range in weight options from 40g to 80g+ in 10g increments with evolving profiles as the weights increases. This ideology is based on the simple fact that from years of working with the best fitters in the world, KBS has developed a deep understanding of how these factors work together to help each player in certain swing “categories.”

The other interesting part of the KBS TD wood line is the absence of stated flex on each shaft—yes, they 100 percent come in varying flexes but not in the same “stiff” and “regular” naming that most golfers are familiar with. Instead, the TD shafts are separated into categories ranging from Category 1 through Category 4. This helps eliminate some of the preconceived notions that some golfers might have about trying different shaft flexes, and on the custom fitting side, also helps fitters better understand each player swing profile that matches up with a certain weight and flex (category).

KBS TD shafts: Specs & fitting details

Getting into the nitty-gritty of the specs from a fitting perspective, every shaft in the KBS TD line has the potential to work in any driver or fairway wood. This gives golfers the opportunity to play a KBS product right through the entire top end of the bag from driver to highest-lofted fairway wood.

The fitting opportunities are also expanded since every shaft in the TD line has 4 inches of parallel tip section to allow fitters and builders fine-tune to create in-between flexes. This is nothing new in the shaft world, but considering this design trait is available in every shaft, it means that, for example, if you need a “Category 3.5” a builder could tip a 3 a little extra to make it play the perfect flex.
