Miura MB-101: The first new Miura blade since 2013

Published

on

It has been six years since Miura unveiled a new forged blade iron. For 2020, the Japanese company is introducing the all-new Miura MB-101 iron—aimed at golfers looking for a classic, compact, shotmaking tool.

Miura MB 101 Blade

The last blade iron Miura launched into the market was way back in 2013: The MB-001. Since then, there have been quite a few new additions to the Miura family of irons, but no pure blade until now.

“This is a model of which the entire Miura family can be proud,” says Shinei Miura. “My father is as passionate about the MB-101 as any club he has ever designed. Our hope is that it will be recognized as one of the finest irons our factory has ever produced and will remain in our model lineup for years to come.”

Muira’s heritage is based on creating timeless forged irons, including blades—and don’t for a second think that this is just a rebadged Miura Baby Blade with a new name. Miura prides itself in their endless pursuit of perfection—their design philosophy is “kaizen,” which means” continuous improvement.” With respect to the MB-101, every detail has been refined to create the ultimate shotmaking tool for golfers seeking the absolute best in precision performance.

The muscle shape is much more organic and rounded to go along with the new sole design that greatly improves turf interaction. The other part of the iron that has gone through a tremendous change, thanks to Shinei and Yoshitaka Muira, is the transition from the hosel to the topline. This is, for the most discerning player, the telltale sign of a well-designed club: The hosel should look like it almost melts into the topline of the club, and with the new Muira MB-101 iron, you get exactly that.

The new Miura MB-101 embodies the theory that the smaller the clubhead, the more focused a player will be over the ball, resulting in better strikes. Along those same lines, the more compact head means more mass will be behind the ball, even on mishits, providing better results and offering the greatest level of feedback.

“Miura’s reputation is centered on its history of crafting exceptional, championship-caliber blade irons, and the MB-101 continues that legacy,”  Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf.

Miura MB-101: Tech specs & availability

The Miura MB-101 is forged from premium S25C soft carbon steel and finished in satin chrome to visually delight the most discerning golf purists.

The MB-101 set runs 3-PW and is available for $280 per iron. Golfers can purchase the MB-101 and all other Miura products at authorized club fitters around the globe or fully assembled at www.Miuragolf.com.

    Simply as good an iron as anything out there! Like the fact that the lofts are not beefed up!

    Looks like Japan issued MB-5001/3.

    Not sure about the MORE rounded toe! Other than that they’re perfect. Appear to be smaller than the mb001. What ever happened to the 2019 baby blade????? Is this the same thing?? The ferrule is most likely BB&F (Patrick Boyd).

    Wish my game was capable of playing these. They’re gorgeous, and I’ll bet buttery soft when well struck.

      Randy – your game IS capable. These and similar blades (we used to just call them golf clubs) will improve anyone’s ball-striking ability. Unfortunately for most, they require a little practice once in a while. Most people today do not want to bother themselves with practice – it’s time-consuming.

    Miura has always considered the hosel to be the most important part of the head – it was always the most meticulously crafted part ‘where the shaft unites with the club head. When they came to visit our shop before opening our account & certifying us to build them, they made sure we had a quality drill press…the heads used to come with a pilot hole and builders had to bore it to whether or not you were using a taper or parallel tip, assuring the tightest shaft to head fit. Only a small amount of glue was needed & helped ‘lubricate’ the shaft as you pounded it down that last 3/8″ or so to seat it all the way down. Miura believed this accounted for the exceptional distance & feel.

    Take apart any Mizuno or Titleist – even PXG and you can wiggle the tip around in the hosel. They dimple the shafts to give the glue more to bond with and more than a few times we needed to shim all of the above brands.

    The difference is real. Still the best.

    $280 per club…… Bye Miura. They look exactly like my 620s

    Every manufacturer should go to a 7 year cycle on irons!

      I thought the exact same thing when I saw the article.

    “…and don’t for a second think that this is just a rebadged Miura Baby Blade with a new name.”

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.
