Miura MB-101

We tested: 3-PW

Our take: If you’re looking for that buttery soft forged iron feel, these are the cream of the crop. The MB-101 irons are true blades, so there’s not much by way of forgiveness, but for those who hit the center of the face often, the looks and feel are second-to-none in the category. Plus, the black versions have a serious wow factor.

Miura MB-101 irons

The Miura MB-101 incorporates the best characteristics of early Miura designs and models. The subtle refinements to the sole allow the club to travel effortlessly through the turf.

The details: Miura’s MB-101 blades are forged from premium S20C soft carbon, and they come with either a Satin Chrome or black QPQ (quench-polish-quench) finish that reduces wear or erosion. They have thin toplines, minimal offset, compact shapes, narrow soles, and they have serious bag appeal, too.

Miura TC-201

We tested: 3-PW

Our take: For better players who want the look and performance of a blade, but with a touch of added forgiveness for mishits, the TC-201 irons deliver. They also have that buttery soft forged feel that Miura users love.

Miura TC-201 irons

The TC-201 offers the performance of a muscle back with the increased forgiveness of a cavity back. The progressive weighting in the sole provides a lower center of gravity in the long irons for added height and higher trajectory on longer shots.

The details: These tour cavity-back designs have progressive center of gravity throughout the set to help with trajectory control and forgiveness where it’s needed. The short irons have a higher center of gravity (CG) for a lower trajectory and spin control, while the longer irons have lower CG to help players hit the ball higher and with more accuracy. Like the MB-101 irons, the TC-201 are also forged from S20C soft carbon.

Miura CB-301

We tested: 4-PW, GW

Our take: Most golfers want a soft forged feel from their irons, but not all golfers are skilled enough to play with a blade or small cavity back. The CB-301 irons are designed so that a wider array of players can experience the high-end feel and playability of a Miura iron, without giving up forgiveness and distance.

Miura CB-301 irons

The CB-301 is the the longest forged cavity-back iron Miura Golf has ever produced. Each club is engineered with a variable sole and cavity thickness designed to optimize performance and center of gravity.

The details: Forged from S20C carbon, the CB-301 irons are Miura’s longest forged cavity-back offering. The back cavity thickness is designed to optimize performance on off-center hits and help golfers achieve higher speeds and launch angles.

Miura PI-401

We tested: 4-PW, GW

Our take: A true game-improvement iron never felt so soft. In this new offering from Miura, the PI-401 irons achieve performance levels for high-handicappers that haven’t been seen from the company before. They produce speed and forgiveness, without giving up much by way of sound and feel.

Miura PI-401 irons

The PI-401 cavity back iron was designed for players of every skill level. Shinei Miura sought to design an iron which delivered exceptional forgiveness, while maximizing distance.

The details: The trick to Miura’s PI-401 irons is the multi-material construction. The faces are made from premium S35C carbon steel for more speed, while the bodies are made from 8620 soft steel for greater strength. The soles have four angles and a wide construction for less turf resistance at impact, making them easier to hit for high-handicappers. Expect a high launch and more distance from these PI-401 irons, no matter your skill level.

Miura MC-501

We tested: 3-PW

Our take: They may look like blade irons, but there’s a bit more than meets the eye. Miura brings its renowned buttery soft feel and premium forging process into a blade-like iron that offers a bit more forgiveness than a true blade.

Miura MC-501 irons

The MC-501 (Muscle Cavity) combines the playability of a blade with the forgiveness of a cavity back. Incorporating the iconic “Y” Grind created by Yoshitaka Miura, the MC-501 delivers solid ball contact and will appeal to players beyond the low-handicapped golfer.

The details: Miura’s mixed cavity irons are made from premium S20C soft carbon steel, designed to have the playability of a blade with the forgiveness of a cavity back. They have a slightly longer blade length and wider soles than Miura’s true blade offerings, and have intricate shaping in the back cavities for more forgiveness.
