PostSubject: New scalpels for the doctor to play surgical golf   Mon Jul 11, 2011 8:56 pm

MTBdude, this is for you yeah?

Taken from :
http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/491829-miura-golf-introduces-dramatic-limited-forged-black-blade-iron/page__pid__3368780#entry3368780




HIMEJI, Japan -- Miura Golf, the Japanese company known for its excellence in forging fine clubs, also has a reputation for the beauty of its creations. The tradition continues with the company's latest forged iron.

Miura's new LIMITED FORGED BLACK BLADE iron is a stunning version of the popular muscle back Miura Tournament Blade -- but with the distinctive Miura Black finish. Company founder and club making expert Katsuhiro Miura and his sons, Yoshitaka and Shinei, and their staff took special care to create a no-glare, flat-black finish with a surface texture that's pleasing to the touch. When golf club fans see these beauties, the effect is like coming around the corner and seeing your dream car parked at the curb. They can't get that look out of their minds.

The LFBB finish is the same as on Miura's Black Wedges. Like the wedges, these irons will show gradual, desirable wear with repeated use. But "wear" doesn't mean "wear out." Instead, it's more like a breaking in, a personalization no different than the one that occurs with your favorite baseball glove or the skates you want in the games that matter.

This personalized settling-in of the finish will differ slightly for every player. But in general, the black finish will mature over time to a silvery gray, mostly on the center of the clubface and on the sole, starting at the leading edge. Time in the sun enters into it, as well as the turf the golfer usually encounters. In the end, the Limited Forged Black Blades will be distinctively Miura, and distinctively each golfer's own - and always a joy to look at as well as play.

"This is one of the great things about being the kind of company we are -- small and focused on careful, handcrafted work. So we can satisfy golfers' appetites for clubs that are beautiful as well as functional," said Adam Barr, president of Miura. "When Miura-san has ideas like this for something special and exciting, we can do it, and to a very high standard. Of course, by definition, there can't be many of these sets available. But that just adds to the allure."



The suggested retail price for the Limited Forged Black Blades will be US$275 per club. Interested golfers around the world can check the list of expert dealer/fitters near them by clicking on this Miura Dealer List.

Hi senmin, the name of the shop at Laguna Country Club is called Torque Golf. Look for Joe or Stanley. Joe is the club fitter.
