Miura Golf Debuts

Special Edition Small Blade Iron

VANCOUVER, British Columbia-Legendary forged iron maker, Katsuhiro Miura of Himeji, Japan, and Miura Golf Inc., have introduced the Limited-Edition Small Blade forged iron. The Small Blade features a nickel (satin) finish and follows the fundamental design, manufacturing and functional concepts of all Miura Golf clubs. However, the Small Blade's muscle-back head is about 15 percent smaller than the company's Tournament Blade iron head, and the new iron's face is thicker than the Tournament Blade's face.
When asked why he would be introducing a smaller iron when the industry standard now seems to be mid-size and oversize irons, Mr. Miura responded "industry fads mean nothing to me. These fads are developed by the marketing departments of the equipment manufacturers simply to boost sales and have little to do with performance. What I care about is creating the most perfect performing golf clubs for golfers, and different golfers have different preferences. I believe there is a class of golfer who will very much appreciate the qualities of the Small Blade, and I have made this club for these golfers. This club is for two kinds of golfers - the first being the golfer who generally strikes the ball on the sweet spot and who wants to simply enjoy the unique pleasure of a perfect shot hit with a Miura club - the second being the golfer who really wants to improve and is looking for the most intelligent feedback on every shot he or she hits. Frankly, if people can cleanse their minds of the marketing hype that has been fed to them over the years, they might find that that forged blades are not necessarily only for the single digit handicappers. You are not penalized for mishit shots to the degree people believe and there are many advantages to these clubs, for example the Small Blade cuts through rough more efficiently than any other club."
Mr. Miura, who is director of manufacturing and product development at Miura Golf's manufacturing facility in Himeji, Japan, has been making the world's highest quality forged irons for over 5 decades and is reputed in the Japanese golf media to "have the hands of God". His proprietary 14-step process assures that every Miura club meets the most exacting of golf industry standards.

The Small Blade iron is available in 3-iron through 9-iron, plus pitching wedge. A 2-iron is also optional.

Miura Golf's corporate office is located in Vancouver, British Columbia and Miura Golf clubs are sold at the finest custom-fitting shops in North America. More information on Miura products can be found at www.miuragolf.com.

MP58 is a pocket cavity isnt it. MP68 is a muscle back and a very nice one too!

Was playing baldes MP33 two sets back, the feeling when you hit it right is sublime.... but when you it off.. say goodbye to the ball and you will get a uncomfortable tingle in your hands.

Why I move away from blades is that it takes too much commitment to hit it consistently. Therefore when my new commitment arrives, i move back to the normal mid-size or over size irons. But if you are the type that want to go for the perfect swing.. and able to shape the ball of different environment... then please go and try blades.

But if you like me... now a leisure golfers that just want the ball to go straight and land soft.. and does not want to commit a lot of time in training.. stay with the easy to hit irons.

When we practice, most of the time we look for distance and accuracy.
But there is another important aspect, the quality of your ball striking.
Once your quality of ball striking is in place, the distance and accuracy will be easier to address.

Hence, blade is an excellent club to give you feedback on your striking quality.

In your next range session, practice on the striking and let me know if I make sense.

MP68s are considered as muscle backs. The MB5003s are also muscle backs, as are the TM RAC MB, TM TP MB, Cobra Pro MB, KZG Forged Z0. 'True' blades don't have the 'lump' behind the face, but the modern interpretation of a blade is a muscleback

Historically, the correct term was MUSSELback, cos the extra mass was shaped like a mussel (clam) behind the head, but over time, it probably sounded more cool to call the musclebacks

MP58s are pocket CAVITIES, which fall into the concept of a cavityback. Anything that has a space at the back and more mass AROUND the around, i.e. perimeter weighting is pretty much a cavityback
