The reimagined design of Miura’s most popular model combines the playability of a cavity back iron with the performance of a blade
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Miura Golf, manufacturer of the world’s finest forged golf clubs, today unveiled their highly anticipated MC-502 Muscle Cavity iron.
While Miura’s newest iron shares the DNA of its predecessor, the highly regarded MC-501, the MC-502 showcases increased face progression (less offset) with a softer, more rounded top line and toe profile. The result is an iron which is easy to align while delivering more confidence to the golfer at address. The Miura design team worked tirelessly to improve the turf interaction of the MC-502. With the iconic leading edge “Y” grind in place, a precise and calculated increase to the camber of the sole has elevated the performance of our latest model.
“While the MC-501 proved that forgiveness was attainable in a blade iron without compromising performance, the MC-502 shows that Shinei Miura was able to incorporate subtle design enhancements to meet the discerning needs of better players,” said Bill Holowaty, COO, Miura Golf.
For more than 65 years, Miura has been driven not by market trends or sales targets, but by vision and inspiration. Following the natural life cycle of the MC-501, and driven by the never-ending quest for perfection, Miura Craftsmen sought to improve their already incredibly popular model. Guided by the charge of creating a true muscle cavity back iron with the playability of a blade, and utilizing the company’s proprietary manufacturing techniques, the new MC-502 line is an achievement worthy of the company’s storied history.
“The design philosophy of the Miura family is to only introduce new models when they can improve on an existing model,” Holowaty added. “Time and again, the immensely talented and creative team at the Miura factory produces ground-breaking products that raise the bar even higher, and the MC-502 line is no exception.”
The MC-502 irons will be available in 3-PW.
