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.
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.
