Miura has introduced the ICL-601 driving iron.
The inner cavity-iong Iron is the latest in Miura’s MG Collection and blends into a set of any Miura irons. The initial offering is a 23-degree four iron, with an 18-degree two iron and 20-degree three iron.
“The inner cavity design is not new for Miura,” said 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,” he said.
Shinei Miura aimed to enhance the centre of gravity by use of the variable weighting system, particularly addressing the mis-hits typically associated with a long iron. A top line which instills confidence is paired with a sole design for solid turf interaction, no matter the lie.
The 23-degree ICL-601 includes an eight-gram weight, matching its weight to a standard four iron. This allows the club to be assembled with the same shaft as an iron set or to be fitted with a premium shaft.
As with other forged irons, the lie and loft angles are adjustable, enabling golfers to fit the club seamlessly into their sets.
The clubhead’s inner cavity allows for a wider sole and lower centre of gravity. With a larger sweet spot comes more forgiveness, high launch, and controlled spin rates.
“The ICL gives Miura traditionalists the opportunity to add technology to their game, while maintaining the quality and feel of a Miura forged club,” said Miura vice president Jason Rutkoski.
“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,” he said.
