The Miura 1957 K-Grind wedge has a unique look. Those signature knuckles really stand out when looking in the bag. However, when standing over your ball, the knuckles do their work on the turf, without you even noticing. What do these knuckles do? How can they help your game stay on track? We will show you.
Miura K-Grind Wedge Knuckles and Train Tracks (What’s The Connection?)
Trains are a reliable source of transportation for hundreds of years. Although you hear about the occasional train accident or derailment, for the most part, the train is a reliable and safe way to travel.
Why is this?
Trains stay on the tracks.
Even when there are weather issues, trains are still reliable and less vulnerable to disruption.
With the Miura K-Grind wedges, you will see that same stability, reliability, and unwavering ability to stay on track through the impact. The turf works as the track, and the knuckles are the train wheels that help to guide the clubface through impact.
Interestingly the knuckles work this way in various conditions, the same way trains prove their reliability on the tracks in wet or dense weather.
A square and aligned clubface is a quality all golfers seek, and that was one of the goals in creating the K-Grind 2.0.
How Do Knuckles On The Sole Impact Performance?
We, as golfers, ask a lot of our wedges. We expect that regardless of the condition, we can get spin, accuracy, and control. In addition, great feel is yet another requirement.
With the K-Grind 2.0 wedges, the knuckles are there to handle the twisting that happens when contact is made with sand or rough. Some golf course conditions are unpredictable regardless of your swing speed and power.
Using the ground as an ally is a concept that many golf manufacturers are just starting to tap into. For many years players struggled with avoiding the ground when in reality, it can be there to help.
With the Miura K-Grind 2.0 wedge in your hands, you will see the knuckles guide your club through various ground conditions to help, rather than hurt your golf game.
Additional Features of the K Grind 2.0
As great as this stability and extra guidance is for getting through impact, the Miura K-Grind 2.0 features more than just the knuckles on the sole.
The increased bounce and roll provide some additional forgiveness and the ability to spin the golf ball. The grooves were milled to increase spin on your approach shots, half-swing shots, and the shorter chips and pitches around the green.
