Miura Launches ICL-601 Driving Irons in North America

Published

on

Looking for a long-iron replacement that’s easier to hit than the MG Collection CB-2008, CB-1008, and MB-5005 irons? Meet Miura’s new MG ICL-601 driving iron, which will be available later this fall in North America.

The ICL-601 has a multi-material, hollow-cavity construction that helps it launch shots higher and faster than the company’s MB and CB models. The bodies of the driving irons are made of SUS304 stainless steel, and they’re welded to a 455 carpenter steel faces — the same material that’s used to craft the hot faces of Miura’s Neo Genesis PP-9005 irons.

“The inner cavity design is not new for Miura,” says Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “It was first introduced with the hugely popular IC-2003. Modern technological advances have allowed us to improve on the original design. This is accomplished by integrating a 455 Carpenter Steel face (as found in our PP-9005 G) and the use of the variable weighting system found in the Hayate woods.”

The ICL-601s also include a weight-port in the sole of the club head that allows club fitters to fine-tune swing weight for different lengths, and to help golfers blend the driving irons with their standard iron sets. The driving irons have a satin chrome finish, along with a thick top line that hides the wider sole from a golfer’s view at address.

“The ICL gives Miura traditionalists the opportunity to add technology to their game, while maintaining the quality and feel of a Miura forged club,” says Jason Rutkoski, Miura Golf vice president. “The ICL is a remarkable new product that will benefit golfers from all demographics, by seamlessly fitting their existing set or adding a club to fit that one shot/hole per round.”

Golfers can purchase the ICL-601 driving irons in three different lofts: 18 (2-iron), 20 (3-iron), and 23 degrees (4-iron). They will be available through Miura’s network of custom fitters for $369 each.

    Looks atrocious. Anyone needing that much offset should go straight to the fairway wood aisle. And what’s with the ridiculous marketing message on the club head? Miura puts so much care into the materials they use, and they are known for their relatively simple designs. Why wreck it with all of this cluttering text? It makes the club look cheap and homemade.

    I tried this bad boy out and it felt how I hoped the TMB would. It’s going to eat at me until I get one. One thing I am going to look at is if it can be bent. I’d like to get a 20 and bend it a degree or two weak and lose a little offset.

    “The structure of inner cavity” um, that doesn’t sound right.

    Miura isn’t the same any longer. Logos are getting bigger on heads though. I liked their stuff when they used to do OEM for big companies.

    I’d have expected prettier from Miura, sticking with MP-H5’s for the upper end of my bag.

      Appears to have some things in common with:

    “The bodies of the driving irons are made of SUS304 stainless steel, and they’re welded to a 455 carpenter steel faces — the same material that’s used to craft the hot faces of Miura’s Neo Genesis PP-9005 irons.”
    Okay, the body is cast stainless steel and the face is also steel. No forged components.
    Now here from the quoted article for the PP-9005 iron set we have:
    “The Genesis PP-9005 irons ….. (are) comprised of two pieces; the back is forged out of S20C and the faces are 455 carpenter steel.”
    So the backs and hosel are forged while the faceplate is carpenter steel not forged to the best of my knowledge.
    Muira is up front with the metallurgy of their iron club heads in contrast to TM P790 co-forged heads where the faceplate is forged and body is cast steel but labelled as fully forged.

    Hideous. The new Mizuno driving iron is 100x better looking

      This. It really is hideous. The early signs following Miura’s takeover are not good.

    That is ugly for a Miura – too much offset, too thick topline, the sole is fine for a hybrid type driving iron.
