Our take: Miura’s CB-301 is packed with the kind of forgiveness and speed you’d expect to find in a game-improvement iron. But with a Tour-inspired profile (the shape is slightly larger than the MC-501), it’s able to remain firmly entrenched in the player category at the same time. Consider this Miura’s best-of-both-worlds design. The hand forged cavity-back features a variable sole and cavity thickness designed to optimize the center of gravity within each head. That means more distance and speed for better players without sacrificing quality and feel. Speaking of quality, each iron undergoes a 14-step manufacturing process before it goes out the door. It’s the kind of meticulous craftsmanship that continues to keep Miura at the iron summit.
Even with Tour-esque shaping, CB-301 is far from your traditional player product. On average, the iron was 1 mph faster and six yards longer than other clubs tested in the category on the robot. Those numbers will make anyone stand up and take notice, especially when it’s paired with forgiveness and a penetrating flight that should speak to those who struggle with too much spin.
ClubTester’s take (5-hdcp): “Feels like this could work for a single-digit or mid-handicapper. Great tweener iron with better-player qualities.”
Robot’s take: Near the top in speed, carry, low spin rate and forgiveness.
