Hi,
I am currently playing Honma IS-o3 with off the rack shafts. I am 15 HCP. The irons perform well, however , as usual after 3 years playing them I would like to change for better to offset my age (58). I was looking at Miura  PP 9005 or PXG. However those irons are not easy to buy in Europe, so before I make considerable effort to get a set I just wanted to ask if anyone has an opinion if it is worth to try ? Has anyone educated opinion ?

I have a set of Miura 501's.  Great looking club.  Currently playing PXG's for about 18 months.  There is no comparison in performance / forgiveness.  I love the looks of the Miura's, but the PXG's are on a totally different level.  I know the lofts are stronger and that accounts for a good portion of the distance difference.  However, the forgiveness factor is massive with the PXG's compared to the Miura's.  I am a club ho, but have no plans on switching anytime soon.

Sorry - can't compare to the Honma's.

This is very accurate.  I have a set of the 0311T's and the forgiveness is incredible.  I couldn't get over the thicker topline in the scoring irons so I play Miura MB001's in 7-W and PXG0311T's in 4-6.  I get some funny looks but its worth having complete confidence in a 4-iron.

I know it's a little far, but True Spec Golf does fittings in Golf La Reserva Club in Sotogrande, Spain.  While they don't list Honma, they do carry Miura and PXG.  Have you considered Epon?

I can't help with the irons you're after, but if you get no further help here, then visit Tourspecgolf or JDMClubhouse and post a similar question on these forums, as they are based on JDM golf gear.

Enjoy.

This is excellent advice.....   Epon or XXIO for mega forgiveness and feel.  Miura is nice but not in the same category if you want forgiving soft feeling irons.

PRGR irons have the closest feel to PXG. That's not from me, it's from a source in PXG.

If you are already playing Honma IS 03 (good stock shaft), I don't see why you would even consider Miura.  I am older than you so you should be looking for easier clubs and not more difficult.  Don't forget that your age is going north and physical strength is going south going forward.  Ho'ing is one thing but you really need to enjoy the game too.  I am playing Epon 703 and Grindworks DP but also demo'ed PXG.  While PXG is good, I just don't see the need to change even if there is some  small marginal difference.
