Miura Golf bringing CB-1008, MB-5005 players irons to U.S.

Miura Golf has brought a pair of players irons into the U.S. market, continuing their expansion of options for American golfers with two sets that largely maintain traditional Miura design while using weight movement to improve launch angles and forgiveness.

Miura Golf CB-1008

The cavity-back offering, the CB-1008, is a forged carbon-steel iron with a wider sole than the normal Miura blade that makes it more forgiving than the Miura blade. The center of gravity is lowered to deliver better ball flight and some improved forgiveness, particularly in the longer irons.

The Miura Golf CB-1008 irons retail for $279 each, making an eight-club set $2,232.

Miura Golf MB-5005

The MB-5005 is a take on the prototypical blade, mixing the look of the muscleback with the performance and forgiveness of a cavity back. The key feature is removing 15 grams of weight from where the muscleback would typically be and redistributing that for more forgiveness. The muscleback has a larger sweet spot and a lower center of gravity in a longer profile to deliver more confidence.

The Miura Golf MB-5005 is a limited-edition in North America, with something like just 150 sets available forĀ $329 each.
