informative discussion, and really enjoyed it. i think we owed it to Eiji for the clarification we got on where the Miura's iron are forged. I personaly like differing opinion, as it will lead you to an answer of a fact that seems to be taken for granted. this in turn will enforce the and strenghten the very fact statement in question.

So thanks to Eiji-san, we are all clearer now that the Miura blades are all forged in Himeji, japan.

cheers,

Maybe we can really arrange a trip there to visit their factory.....who wanna go, raise your hand please .....haha !!!

As much I am glad my clubs are made in Japan ... I personally would have preferred a "Factory Visit" to Thailand ....

Now that the air is cleared, i do have another question about the distribution.

Is Torgue golf the local authorised distributor and fitter?

Dangerous unlikely...Misinformed definitely.

I think it'll be good for Torgue Golf to list their distribution networks locally if any.
For the information of GR'ians.

You did not do your homework bro. It is listed in the miura website under international dealers.

Of course i did my homework, i just want Miuragolf to state it here for the benefits of fellow forummers.

Reason being that there has been postings of another source of Miura clubs.

If the other source is not listed in the miura website, then it is simply not true.

There is in fact at least one other place (that i am aware of) in singapore that sells miura clubs - Golf & Leisure at FESC, but i was informed that they don't do fitting.

Whether they are authorised or not-authorised or official or parallel or whatever, I have no clue.

Hi all,

I wrote to Adam Barr, president of Miura Inc, last night. And I reproduce his answer below verbatim.

-----------------------------------------------
Dear Derek:

Congratulations on your 501s. We're glad you're part of the Miura family.

Every Miura forged club head -- every single one, including your 501s --is made in our forge and factory in Himeji, Japan, a little more than an hour northwest of Osaka. The name of the suburb the factory is in is Amaji. It's about a 20-minute train ride on the JR Bantan Line from Himeji Station. As a matter of fact, the train line runs right by the forge. The factory is a couple kilometers beyond the station.

To see what we do there, check out the video I will send you in the next e-mail.

Contact me any time with questions or comments. Thanks again for trusting your game to Miura.

Adam Barr
President
Miura Golf

-----------------------------------------

As far as I am concerned, the reply of the President of a registered company in writing specifically answering my question lays to rest the issue of location of manufacture.

Derek,

A tremendously useful act of initiative and sharing, thank you indeed.

Cheers.

The Miura 'factory visit' is a dead horse, I'm afraid, so perhaps one should stop beating it.

But can always find other official reasons to visit Thailand, never fear.

For the information of GR'ians.

Sir, I applaud your initiative in doing your homework for the benefit of fellow forummers. An excellent example of a course marshal carrying out his duties. Just to add a tiny tiny bit to your homework, indulge us for the benefit of fellow forummers and click on the link below.

Voila!

What is the first country listed? Singapore. The company listed? Torque Golf. The person? Stanley.

I guess your concern must have been borne out of the current prevalence of FAKE GOODS in the market. This is indeed a concern; I have read some reports on the size and sophistication of these counterfeiters.

So, when I see some equipment being put on sale with tremendously too-good-to-be-true prices, I personally always stay away. No point tempting fate.

To avoid being an unknowing victim of these counterfeiters, I ONLY BUY FROM AUTHORISED DEALERS. Sometimes, a parallel importer, or some other less mainstream sources somehow can offer the same product cheaper. For my peace of mind, I stay away from them.

Wow, took me awhile to absorb the information posted since yesterday. I was looking forward that the matter not be brushed off too lightly. I was glad that some has stayed focus on the issue, despite a few distractions here and there. Very Happy

Really learnt a lot from you guys. Thanks for sharing!
