HIMEJI, JAPAN — Miura Golf has introduced its new CB 2008 irons, which dispel the notion that forged irons are only for better players. “The CB 2008 epitomizes how advancements in technology can be delivered to golfers of all skill levels,” says Bill Holowaty, COO of Miura Golf. “The midsize clubhead combines a soft carbon forged face and neck with a composite, pocket cavityback. This design allows for a wider sole, lower center of gravity, larger sweet spot and more forgiveness. Meaning that regardless of your ability, a Miura forged iron is waiting for you.”
The CB 2008 begins with a single billet of soft carbon steel. The mid-sized head is the first composite body iron produced exclusively at Miura’s Himeji, Japan factory. Technological advancements have enabled the factory to integrate a forged face (just 4mm thick) with a SUS composite pocket cavityback. The result is an iron that delivers a performance previously unseen in any Miura iron.
The evolution of the sweet spot power bridge is integral to this process. In the 5-through-8-iron, this unique design allows the pocket cavity to perform consistently throughout the entire set while delivering the renowned Miura feel. The 9-iron and PW are one-piece forged. The CB 2008 boasts a deeper center of gravity, adding a level of forgiveness that will appeal to all golfers — regardless of playing index or experience. Enhancing the playability is Miura’s widest iron sole ever — it’s 20mm in the 7-iron, for example — allowing for more solid contact on shots from all types of lies and conditions.
“The most important aspect of the design and development process is delivering the feel and performance that have long been the DNA of Miura forged irons,” says Holowaty. “Golfers are going to love the CB 2008.”
Each iron carries a $339 MAP price.
