2018 Miura MC 501 Irons

Known for its incredible attention to detail and for creating some of the finest clubs on the market today, Miura Golf has now introduced its MC-501 Muscle Cavity irons to the world’s players.

“When Shinei Miura and the design team were creating the MC-501, their aim was to improve ball contact and control,” says Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf.  “Although blade models typically target a specific skill set, Shinei wanted this new model to appeal beyond just the low-handicap player.”

McGarity added, “We are very excited about the first new offering of this Miura Golf model since we introduced the 1957CB Series, More new products from Miura Golf are on the way in 2018.”

Miura Golf makes the world’s finest forged golf clubs, which are designed and manufactured by the Miura family in their factory in Himeji, Japan. The entire family works hands-on in the factory and continues to carry on the Miura legacy.

World-renowned craftsman Katsuhiro Miura began hand-crafting and grinding irons in 1957, and has created one of the most-respected brands in the golf industry. Miura’s endless quest for the perfect club has brought over 10 product series, a number that grows as the next generation of the Miura family–led by sons Shinei and Yoshitaka–continue their meticulous refinement and evolution of product lines. Each club is individually handcrafted and will never be mass produced, as generations of steel-making skill and passion brings golfers the world’s finest golf clubs.

As the longest heel-to-toe blade model ever produced by Miura, the MC-501 is suited for blade and cavity back players looking to improve shot forgiveness on off-center strikes. Engineers repositioned 20 grams of weight toward the sole, thus increasing its width and strategically redistributing the clubhead’s center of gravity. This technology is aimed at helping players get the ball airborne with more ease and headed toward the intended target with greater accuracy. The MC-501 also incorporates Yoshitaka Miura’s iconic Y-grind sole that blunts and softens the clubhead’s leading edge to improve turf interaction and prevent poor contact with the golf ball.

Each clubhead on the new irons is precision-forged from premium S25C soft carbon steel and then finished in a luxurious copper nickel satin for an inviting, stunning look that can only inspire avid golfers. The MC-501 is available in 3-iron through pitching wedge and had a manufacturer’s suggested price of $260 per club when it officially hit the market in February of this year.

This company’s superb attention to detail will also be demonstrated in new Miura branding, which now reflects the clean and sleek lines of a Miura club. The rebrand also displays a new partnership between the Miura and Milstein families, and also reflects a broader reach with their products that offer the same exquisite quality, but with the additional ability to serve golfers of all skill levels.

With the release of more forgiving clubs, Miura is reaching deeper into the golf community and exposing more golfers to the company’s clubs feel and its designers’ legendary craftsmanship.
