Miura Golf has added the Yoshitaka Grind wedges and C-Grind wedges to its Series 1957 special edition product line. The new wedges join four iron models in the Series 1957.
Both new mild-steel wedge models undergo the same precision forging finish as the irons.
The Yoshitaka, or Y-Grind wedges, are available in 49, 51 and 53-degree lofts, and a 60-degree model will be offered in the future. Available in right-handed only, they feature a W nickel (satin) chrome/black finish and come with a stiff flex steel shaft and Velvet Full Cord grip.
“The Y- and C-Grind wedges not only feature the latest technology that will help every golfer improve his or her game, but the wedges with the Miura Satin finish play as good as they look,” says Bill Holowaty, vice president of operations for Miura Golf in North America.
“Yoshitaka Miura’s craftsmanship and research have resulted in unique playability features that make these wedges the perfect scoring clubs,” he added.
The grind on the Y-Grind wedges was created by Yoshitaka Miura, son of company founder Katsuhiro Miura.
“The new Miura wedges are designed for players seeking the very best,” said Katsuhiro Miura, who researched the Series 1957 Y-Grind wedges by traveling to North America and Europe with his sons to study a variety of playing conditions and turf structures.
The Y-Grind and C-Grind wedges are designed to provide the feel, feedback and workability of a forged blade.
Miura’s forging techniques rearrange the molecular structure of the mild steel in a uniform pattern throughout the club’s hitting area. This tightness in the metal’s grain structure offers control and soft feel.
Miura also uses a proprietary “spin-welding” process to produce a consistent hosel. This unique procedure is in place to ensure that bore depths and hosel heights are identical on every Miura-made head and that every club’s shaft will be perfectly centered.
With the C-Grind wedge, the Miura’s goal was to create a wedge with a more aggressive heel-and-toe relief that complements the company’s other wedges.
The challenge was to find a balance between the relief and the rolled trailing edge on the sole.
When the special grind is combined with Miura clubs’ unique density of grain structure, balance and feel, plus the leading and trailing edge versatility, the result is a wedge that is playable in a broad range of conditions.
The C-Grind wedges are now available in lofts of 55, 57 and 59 degrees in right-hand only. They feature a W nickel (satin) chrome finish and come with a stiff-flex steel shaft and Velvet Full Cord grip.
