Miura QPQ Finish (What Is It and Who Does It Work For?)

When golfers think about Miura golf clubs, two things come to mind, looks and feel. Of course, those two things then develop further into performance, consistency, longevity, and all the other positives of being a Miura player. However, a few Miura golf irons, specifically the MB-101 and TC-201, are available with the QPQ finish. With wedges, we currently have the Milled Tour, Tour High Bounce, and the distinctive K-Grind 2.0. The Black QPQ finish is unique, and a labor-intensive process is involved to ensure that the feel, sound, and performance of the club stay in line with the Miura Way.


What Is The QPQ Finish?

The Miura QPQ finish is a black top layer of steel in the golf club head. The QPQ is durable but will wear into a patina over time. This is mostly seen in the area of the club that strikes the ball. In addition, you may see some wear on the bottom of the club head where the club strikes the ground.

One of the most important features of the QPQ is that it will not impact the quality, durability, or longevity of the Miura irons. The appearance will fade slightly over time, but the performance of the golf club is not impacted.

Why QPQ Finish?

At Miura, a lot of work goes into ensuring that the performance of the golf irons with a QPQ finish is just as good as those with a satin finish. Through the years, we have tested many different black finishes, and none of them could bring that same feel and sound that golfers expect from Miura.

The concept of doing a black iron head is to appeal to the players that like that visual. The QPQ finish gives a bit more depth to the club head and stands out to the discerning eye of certain golfers.


Head Weight Tolerances

Many golfers are unaware of the work that goes into ensuring the head weight of a set of irons is consistent. Miura is known for some of the smallest head weight tolerances and more impressive consistency in the industry.

When changing the finish of the golf club, the head weight will be impacted.
QPQ Black finish is marginally heavier than the satin finish. To ensure that the irons felt consistent and performed the same as the satin, the clubhead of any QPQ iron has to have about three grams less weight than a standard clubhead.
Three grams may not sound like much to you. Still, each of the Miura irons has an incredible amount of detail and precision, and this weight tolerance needed to be adjusted in our 14-step manufacturing process.


Final Thoughts (Is QPQ Right For Me?)

The QPQ finish will all come down to looks. If you are a player that likes the design and style of a black iron clubhead, then QPQ is for you. The irons' feel, performance, and sound are designed to be the same as the satin finish. You will still get the Miura experience when you strike a ball, and the tight manufacturing tolerances remain in place.
