Everyone just go buy them, best money I ever spent.

Also does anyone have the story on the production of these clubs? Are these in fact going the way of the Dodo?

They are done.

Sad. Very sad.

I bought a new set of CB-57 5-P earlier this calendar year to add to my Baby Blades ... Some days I wish I would have spent the dough on another set of Baby Blades. :-(

You can flight them.
You can maneuver them.
You can spin them.
They are long.

.... And when you are in a groove, the sweet spot feels the size of an orange.

....... And if you've got the game, to game a 3 Iron, it'll double as a razor to shave with!

Not far away. Played 3 rounds with them so far. One in terrible conditions. In my last round I hit at least 3 shots that were as pure and perfect as I have ever hit.

Ok played some rounds now with the BB's. Not enough to really get to know them but enough to get a feel for them.
Yes I concur with most other owners. These are a special set of irons.
Look at address is slightly different to most modern blades in that they have a slightly squarish toe and the groove area is more heel side on the face. The transition from hosel to topline is very pleasing to my eye. Yes they are compact but I would not call them tiny. Other compact irons I have played like the cally protos and cobra s3 pros are a similar size.
Anyway literally after 2 rounds the size did not even look small to me, they just looked perfect actually. That perception of being small and therefore possibly intimidating disappears very quickly when you hit them.
Of course everybody's swing is different but for my age and swingspeed I went with nippon 950gh in reg which is one of my favorites.
Right off the bat the feedback on these is fantastic. If you don't middle them you know it for sure. Thin, toe or heel they tell you exactly where the ball has come off and the great feel is definitely not there. Of course when you hit them well the feel is special indeed. Not soft but solid and pure.
Now to performance. Although dispersion is impacted by the shaft to some degree with that said these are as accurate and consistent as any blade I have hit and perhaps I would say the best I have played. Even when slightly misshit the ball flies to target with not much distance loss.
I found I hit the mid irons great right off the bat. Sweet, high and perfect. The short irons were a little tougher to get a handle on. They seem to dig pretty easily. Perhaps I got a little steep with them and our courses are quite soft at this time of year which perhaps contributed to this. To my eye they are fairly low bounce (which I like) and the leading edge could be killed a bit more. Overall though I think the sole grind is very good. That combined with the compact size make these irons very versatile from all sorts of lies. Just great in the rough; you can really get down to the ball and cut through. Great off tight and harder lies as you can nip the ball really clean again aided by the small head, lower bounce and sharpish leading edge.
These are the antithesis of the large chunky SGI irons and because of that can be hit with equal effectiveness from any lie on the course and not just when the ball is sitting on a beautiful doormat lie.
I have hit several shots with these that almost take my breath away. They feel so beautiful, the ball flies so perfectly and sits down sweetly on the green. On the other hand I have been punished as well I have hit a couple of shockers, worse than I would normally play. Toe hits (still on the grooves) feel awful and the flight was not great either. Heel misses were not punished so harshly. Thin misses although feeling very poor actually perform ok.
Overall I love these irons and they are keepers that will always be a great part of my collection. I will play other irons. I enjoy other great sets too much to not stray but the BB's are an iconic set that is a must have for any lover of forged blades.
Sorry if my review is a little long I hope it makes sense.

The question really isn't "what Miura blades", it is more like "what other Miura blades".

I need to let some things cool down with the wife, get my GC2 up and running in the garage, then start looking for another set.  I just wonder if a head this good is really going to be discontinued.  I feel like Giken will possibly use the molds, Miuraism sb01 already is the same.  

I mean, if there wasn't so much anti blade propaganda, and big box stores carried a similar head from anyone bigger name and $1,000, I don't know, it is like best head design ever and it is inaccessible to most and in turn is nothing more than forum legend or for wannabes with too much money and it sucks because of people could try them, they are in fact, one of the easiest to hit blades I personally have ever used.  I can't say if that is because of my affinity for them from day one but I don't think so as many have the same experience.  

It really may be a head design that in a different world would and should be like the big berthas or maybe not ping eye, but something like that 15 and under caps, if not so expensive, unavailable to try and see friends with, and of course the fact that marketing hype we have been brainwashed by has made it DOA to any kind of mass following anyway.  I think even people that may bash Miura as over rated, and bash blades as only for tiger woods etc, would be really surprised if ever given the BBs a fair and honest shake.

I know this site needs less BB lovefesting, but as I have said before, it is like the coming of golfs jesus, and I am compelled to spread the good word.

-side note, I would love it if both endo and Kyoei made a similar style head.  But commit all the way, box toe, same heel to toe length, no/minute offset, same weight and mass principles.  The head design has serious merit.

Don't get the oban!!!

I had the programs in my MB001/501 combo set and man, maybe me, but nothing like Nippon for irons.  They were dead boards( I also had 7.0 though and they were a bit much for me in fairness).   Just a thought.  And I am not anti graphite, I oddly have roddio in my wedges.....of course I think the roddio pentacross are #bestcarbonironshaftsever.

I have a fitting setup for next Wednesday for my miuras. Was told ahead that all the blades and passing point irons have been discontinued,and possibly the cb501. Fitter would have to check with rep on the cb501.

The only irons available Wednesday for me,are the new mg versions and the 1957 cb is available and possibly the cb501 depending on what rep says. Was also told the transition phase has stared and you'll be seeing the "new" mg line,and the fitter said that's not a smart move on the new companies part. As the mg line is Miura Japan like Taylormade,titleist,Callaway,ping etc are to USA. The mg is not as high quality and such as the miura line of old.

Hopefully Wednesday goes well for me.

I think you mean the "newer" GI lines?

I was under the impression that the MG line in Japan is every bit the same Miura quality as the global, just different stampings?  The pricing on them would reflect that.  I am talking MG stuff from past years.

NOW if he was saying that the MG JDM line was going to have the same offerings as the global, that would be highly disappointing.  There are mg 5005 that are unique to only JDM miuras, and I am pretty sure they are of the same quality as the world versions.  Be very interesting if the new lineups are across all lineups.....time to hit the auctions.

From what I was told and how I interpreted it. The new mg lines coming here are just the lower tier of the miura family,and what is going to be coming to US. Hence the discontinued blade line and passing point. Like Taylormade p750 and m1 line,ping iblades and g max,and so on. The mg line is just the cheaper version of miura. The new company thinks the mg line is more attainable and affordable for the US markets. Not the higher miura lines. Ie-blades,tournament blades,etc.

You would not be the only one I've heard say they are starting to look at eBay and other online auctions.

I think you mean the "newer" GI lines?

I was under the impression that the MG line in Japan is every bit the same Miura quality as the global, just different stampings?  The pricing on them would reflect that.  I am talking MG stuff from past years.

NOW if he was saying that the MG JDM line was going to have the same offerings as the global, that would be highly disappointing.  There are mg 5005 that are unique to only JDM miuras, and I am pretty sure they are of the same quality as the world versions.  Be very interesting if the new lineups are across all lineups.....time to hit the auctions.

From what I was told and how I interpreted it. The new mg lines coming here are just the lower tier of the miura family,and what is going to be coming to US. Hence the discontinued blade line and passing point. Like Taylormade p750 and m1 line,ping iblades and g max,and so on. The mg line is just the cheaper version of miura. The new company thinks the mg line is more attainable and affordable for the US markets. Not the higher miura lines. Ie-blades,tournament blades,etc.

You would not be the only one I've heard say they are starting to look at eBay and other online auctions.

I own several older MG irons and wedges and I can assure you they are NOT 2nd / lower class Miura's at all.

I've never heard that MG was, from a quality perspective, any different than Miura NA. If anything, consensus has been that MG is a higher level than what they ship to us in North America.

Miura mg is the Japan jdm mass produce versions. What we will be getting here in the states. Mg is a lower miura offering.

Miura NA is the top. Cb57,tournament blades,baby blades,cb501 etc. Here is an excerpt I found.

"Once everyone has caught their collective breath, expect 2018 to further clarify what clubs Miura will produce moving forward and what role Miura-Giken will play. Miura-Giken is the label used for clubs released only in the Japanese market with modifications for that population".  

Hence we in the US will be getting a jdm version of miura. Not the miura we know now.

Any talk of MG being lower quality would relate to the newer, multi-piece models and would be opinion.  While I generally don't like the MG stampings, the traditionally-made MG is by no means lower quality.

Miura NA is not the top, Miuraism is. This is without question.

Historically, Miura Giken and Miura NA have been fundamentally the same products, with the same quality, with slightly different badging or grinds in some cases.

As of this year, their lineup seems to be a bit of a dumpster fire that nobody really understands. The Genesis, which is not branded as either Miura Giken or Miura, certainly appears to be a lower-quality, mass market option. Then the CB 2008 multi-piece head comes along, branded Miura Giken (or "MG") and I'm not sure that anybody knows what to make of it. From a pure $$$ perspective, it's more expensive than previous Miura NA clubs, so they're certainly not positioning it as a mass market type product.

I'm also completely confused about this year's releases.

Wish they would tidy up their new site and give more information. Maybe separate the different lines instead of dumping them all together in one list.

Not all blades are gone. MB001's will continue forward. CB501 will remain as a legacy model. CB2008, 1008 and MB5005 are being pushed hard (incentives for dealers to carry these). I believe CB501's are sold out until the fall at the earliest. CB57 are gone. Baby blades will be available in limited quantities(though not sure moving forward). All lefty clubs gone except for LH CB.. There MAY be lefty stuff coming in the 3 new models above, but as of yet nothing planned.

The CB57 is listed in with the new clubs on the current website...so there's hope.

Whoever is managing this "relaunch" has made a serious mess of it. Miura needed to rationalize their iron line, and instead, it's just gotten more muddy.

I suspect that they have a bunch of NOS inventory of things like the 501 that they just don't want to walk away from. But they need to cut it down to three irons: a muscle back, a players cavity, a game improvement iron. If they want to do other stuff (like the small blade), they should offer them as limited editions and have the discipline to truely limit them.

Going forward they have
Hayate Driver and FW
Passing Point Neo Utility RH
ICL Driving Iron RH
Wedge Series Satin
K Grind Wedge
LH Wedge
Passing Point NEO Wedge
Passing Point 9005 Genesis
CB 2008, 1008, MB 5005
Mb001 - legacy model
CB501 - legacy model
CB57 - legacy model
LH CB - legacy model
Putters are km005, km006, km007 and lh km006
Legacy models are likely the ones heading to the dust bin but will remain in the lineup in limited quantities. I hope they at least keep the mb001's or tournament blades around. As I said above, baby blades will remain in limited quantities. lh blades are on closeout as they are definitely stopping production of them.

Good luck, curious how you find them.

I tried to look on internet and became more confused.....I only buy used anyway, but still.  I guess they just didn't sell many BB at all, so from a biz standpoint, not worth it, but you would think once you have something you could always still have it in limited qty.   this is the same company that "only releases a new model when they have a better one" or something to that effect.  And KM apparently thought a lot of his small blades.  Clearly company model has shifted.
