Scottsdale, AZ -- Miura Golf has introduced its MC-501 Muscle Cavity irons. “When Shinei Miura and the design team were creating the MC-501, their aim was to improve ball contact and control,” says Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “Although blade models typically target a specific skill set, Shinei wanted this new model to appeal beyond just the low-handicap player.” “We are very excited about the first new offering of this Miura Golf model since we introduced the 1957CB Series,” adds McGarity. “More new products from Miura Golf are on the way in 2018.”
As the longest heel-to-toe blade model ever produced by Miura, the MC-501 is suited for blade and cavityback players who want to improve shot forgiveness on off-center strikes. Engineers repositioned 20 grams toward the sole, thus increasing its width and strategically redistributing the clubhead’s center of gravity to help shots get airborne with more ease. The MC-501 also incorporates Yoshitaka Miura's iconic Y-grind sole that blunts and softens the clubhead’s leading edge, to improve turf interaction. Each clubhead is precision-forged from premium S25C soft carbon steel and then finished in a luxurious copper nickel satin for an inviting look that inspires avid golfers. The MC-501 will be available in 3–PW, with a MAP price of $260 per club, when it officially hits the market on February 20, 2018.
