I know it's been said that very few people can actually hit these irons.

I watch a lot of the Champions Tour, and there were a number of times this past summer where it looked like Nick couldn't hit them either.

He's always had a reputation as one of the best ballstrikers in the world, but he hit a number of really fat shots on TV earlier this year.

These aren't the same ones he was hitting earlier this year, which would make sense. Definitely a bigger muscle, I like them a LOT. The baby blades always looked too lean for my tastes. These look exceptionally better.

Hot hot hot. It's funny that Nick's irons are so perfect because he's so laid back about everything else. Last time I ran into him he was wearing old rugby shorts, shoes with no socks and using an elastic band as a money clip. :)

Super good guy.

I just picked my jaw off the floor.   Love those irons.   They do remind me of the MP33 or 690.mb muscle...

Where is Tembolo???   I know he would appreciate seeing those!!!

these are sooooo much better than the retain version with the straight muscle! I would get these immediatly if they were released. When was the last time miura released a new iron? could this possibly be a new model??

Beautiful irons!!!  Thanks for the pics as always Greg!!!

I hate to be picky, but this is a thread about a precise iron player with irons by one of the most well known perfectionist club makers out there, could we please spell Miura right in the title?
