Miura Golf has introduced two new irons to their MG Collection, the CB-1008 cavityback and the MB-5005 muscleback.
The CB-1008 player’s cavityback is forged from a billet of soft carbon steel.
It features a wider sole (19 mm on the seven iron) for playability and forgiveness. That weight distribution in the sole, combined with a lower centre of gravity, is used with the goal of forgiveness and increased launch angles, especially in the mid- and long irons.
“Being able to deliver the feel and performance generally only associated with a blade iron makes the CB-1008 a naturally choice in the players’ iron category,” said Bill Holowaty, COO of Miura Golf.
“A wider sole and a precise distribution of weight are design characteristics which enhance the playability of this iron,” he said.
By redistributing approximately 15 grams of weight from the muscleback part of the iron, Miura modified the design of a typical blade iron.
This iron looks like a blade but is designed to play like a cavityback. It incorporates one of Miura’s key design principles,
“There exist subtleties with the design of the MB-5005 which have enabled the Miura family to deliver a blade iron that plays like a cavityback,” said Holowaty.
“The redistribution of weight in the head allows for an expanded sweet spot and lower centre of gravity. The MB-5005 is also slightly longer from heel to toe, delivering a feeling of confidence to the golfer at address.”
The MB-5005 is a limited edition product line in North America.
