why would you not use giken?

and how are honma's over rated?

i'd like to hear your explanation on this topic since you seem to have a lot opinions today

I'm also curious as to why we should not use giken? From what I've read, gikens are the miuras which are manufactured for the local Japanese market. Therefore, they are softer than the standard miuras but no less playable, i.e. they are just as good.

Bro SS, I think Sigma is saying that if the golfer is a constant in this equation....then using miura will be very more choon than say others

as to why it take a few rounds....that is something I am also curious
IMHO, choon or not is more on the golfer not the club, of cos clubs does help but to what extend??? eg, if the golfer had the tendency of aiming more left would u adjust the golfer or the club? This one I curious to know.

For the price of miura .... is it really worth all that ? where there are other soft and accurate irons around which is half the price? Just had a game in PRC, all miura user but they play in the 100s but lucky for zen putter they are holding, if not 120s liao.

why Homma,s are overated is easy. Of coz their brand name is fastastic and the way they produce out from the factory is also great. but at the end they are still of the shelve product. it do not have a specs of a golfer unless after getting it, u bring it to a fitting shop and rearrange all the specs. Price of a Homma, many ppl know is so damn expensive. it is overrated with the price. but underrated with the specs. the one and only good thing about Homma,s are. they are well assembly by Clubfitters not production workers. the stars will tell u the standard of assembly. if just funny, why do they have to 24k plated the logo.
cheers mate

Using Giken, Miurasium or international model is no different from the made, is not softer at all, all the same, is the CG of the irons. Japan model plays a higher trajectory and international model a mid trajectory.
Go to torquegolf n test it out. Cheers Mate

Thanks for your feedback!

I'm afraid I don't play the irons well enough to notice the trajectory and I also believe that part of that depends on your shaft (kickpoint etc.) In any case, I do like the Miuras as they are soft when hit nicely. Then again, my Mizunos also feel nice when hit correctly. I think all clubs feel nice when hit correctly.

Thx for the feedback mate...

I do agree when u said MG n Miura Intl having same feel as most likely they r using the same material, but forging process Im not too sure...

But in terms of CG, the only apple to apple comparison will be the PP-9003(Intl) n the PP-9003(MG). Care to share any link on these 2 mentioned models on the CG n that the MG set will give higher trajectory? TIA...

Btw, I suppose all the Miura Intl model are retrofit or re-engineer from older model of the MG series... The closest or easiest set to tell from will be the CB-501. Is it a retrofit or re-engineer from the 1996 MG CB-1003(which has discontinued production in Japan)? Correct me if Im wrong...

hi 3131T
I think ur correct, the 501 has been re design n re engineer.
Feel is the same, forging is also the same, they did change the CG.
I have swing the PP(intl) n PP(MG) both same shaft, shimada.
they does have slight different in trajectory.
Pls do go n test it urself and see which trajectory height is better for urself.
Loft angle can help u in anyway with the trajectory.
Cheers mate

at last, I got a chance to look at Miura giken PP9003 closely. They are clearly for high handicap because the head is kinda bigger than most iron I have played. Plus there is a generous amount of offset but not too much. I have to try hit this first and then decide If I becoming a Miura player or not.

I want to share the view at address of Miura PP9003 with you guys:


Very thin topline with good offset. Just about perfect.
