When golfers think about Miura golf clubs, their minds are drawn to two fundamental elements: aesthetics and feel. These core attributes naturally extend into a broader spectrum of performance criteria, including consistency and durability, all of which combine to enhance the allure of being a Miura enthusiast. Notably, among Miura's golf iron offerings, a select group, including the MB-101, TC-201, CB-302, and MC-502, now feature a distinctive QPQ finish. Furthermore, the wedge lineup boasts options like the Milled Tour, Tour High Bounce, and the unique K-Grind 2.0. What sets the Black QPQ finish apart is its distinctiveness, achieved through a meticulous and labor-intensive process aimed at preserving the club's hallmark Miura feel, sound, and performance while staying true to the ethos of 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.
