After some careful consideration I decided to take the leap and I ordered a set of CB-501's. I am currently playing Adams Pro Black MB's and wanted something a little more forgiving. To say  I am excited is an understatement. From what I have read on the boards the 501's don't get much love. What is the general consensus on the 501's?

I'm having them refinished by BOS in a patina oil finish. They should be very unique.

You are right that the cb 501 have had bad press on WRX so I was surprised when I hit them how much I liked them. I have only hit the 4,5 and 6 irons though. I got them used in a combo set with the mb001 short irons. Luke warm on the blades but really like the 501's a lot! Been on the lookout for 7-pw in the 501's to complete the set but not surprisingly very hard to find. (short of buying new)
Congrats on your first set of Miura.

C, I'm really curious how you'd like the BB. What don't you like about the MB001?

Yeah I'm curious too! One day I might find out :)
The 57's have so many devotees here that there must be something special going on.
Hard to pin down what I didn't like about the 001's. Shape and size were fine. Same shaft as the 501's too. Maybe it was the sole grind. Just could not seem to catch it really solid with them. When I demo a new head it really is just a feel thing for me and if I take them out a couple of times and they don't have that "thing" about them I just put them aside.
Maybe I have just not given them a fair go and perhaps was swinging a little scratchy at the time.
I still have them so I can certainly try again.
Thanks for your message BTW. I hope my reply got through.

I wish we lived closer; you'd have plenty of time to demo BB.  I got your message, thanks!  Sorry I haven't responded.  I will do.

I'm new to the whole Miura thing, but I can tell you I was really surprised by the BBs on how easy they were to hit. I tried the BBs against the Mizuno 900 Tours (among a few other clubs), it wasn't close, I thought the Mizunos were way harder to hit than the BBs even though it's a bigger, quasi-cavity head. The 900s were harder to hit than the blade MP5 version.

the 501s was my first Miura set.....love them.

Got them like 4 years ago and played them every week. Even though it wasn't the latest and great, the club never felt old. Awesome choice!

To answer the question to those pondering...



YES!!! There IS something special with the Baby Blades.

To those that have not hit them, I challenge you to find a set and hit them. If you have the absolute least bit of interest in obtaining a set, find them, hit them, and proceed to fork over the cash!!

You'll thank me later.
