Miura iron owners, which the latest miura iron has the largest head and offset and forgiving enough for a 18 handicap?

Does Miura iron have the same buttery feel as Mizuno irons?

Ur looking at pp9003 model from miura. Easy to hit and good for beginners.. Go and try it out in torque golf in laguna range. They have demo clubs and interchangeable shafts and other heads if u wish to try as Nientsu has mentioned

I've read pretty good reviews of the 9003.

Yes go torque golf at Laguna, they are distributor in Asia. I would recommend CB501 for 18 hcp.
You can interchange different shaft to test on your swing to see which one suits you best.

I'm not a beginner.... just don't play golf often enough.

BTW going to Torque golf is not possible because I just need this info for reference.

personally, i find the miuras to be over rated... i think they are not worth the price, and if you only want miuras, buy the giken range which is made for the japan market...

i like the cb 1007 personally and i'm also a 18 handicapper

but personally, i prefer my current honma beres pro irons

For 18 hcap, go for pp9003. Or the mc-102.

If you want any of the rest, build from 7 iron down. Unlikely that you can get the full potential from 6 iron and above.

But if you have a lot of time to practice, then by all means get whichever model pleases your eye.

Feel wise, Miura will beat Mizuno hands down. Price wise, it is the other way around.

Passing point is the most forgiving Miura model.

I used cb-501 for the last 2 years and recently switched to fishy sticks

Hi guys, I just wanna share some of my experience on this topic. I just came back golfing after a 2 years break. Golf is such a pain in the a** to a point i gave my whole golf set away 2 years ago. (also due to injury) So what happened was that i have a client that wants me to have a game with him and from business point of view, i can only say yes to him. Called up a friend of mine to " loan" his set just for the game and so happen its a miura cb 501 if im not mistaken and guess what ... after that round of golf .. im hooked again!! and to be honest i didnt rreally play well after 2 years break right? Those Miuras are really something i would say. So decided to buy a set and went to the pro shop and tried out some of the demos and finally got myself the baby blades. I must say the first 10 days using those tiny club feels intimidating. After a while you'll just get use to whatever clubs that you are holding on to it. But i personally prefer the gikens or the miuraisms just that i have to order it direcly from Japan and it takes them abt 1 month to ship it out. Enjoy your club hunting rkangrah. Also, im using the aerotech steel fiber shaft and its quite amazing!

If u can hit 150m, the sky is the limit...... Miura is the air plane

I can only carry 118m with my 7i.....

Thinking of getting the PP-9003, any idea how much a set from 5-PW will cost?

Try Torque Golf if you're keen on the PP9003.
