Miura IC-601 Irons
Greater distance. More forgiveness. Tighter dispersion. This is the IC 601. (Inner Cavity)
- 5 Iron - PW (6 Clubs)
- 4 Iron - PW (7 Clubs)
- 5 Iron - PW + GW (7 Clubs)
- 4 Iron - PW + GW (8 Clubs)
As with the ICL Driving Iron series, the inner cavity design is not new to Miura. It was first used with our hugely popular IC 2003. (IC 6001 in Japan). Modern technological advances have allowed the Miura family to improve on the original by optimizing ball speed and performance. This is accomplished by integrating a face of 455 Carpenter Steel (as found in our PP 9005 G) and use of a variable weighting system which allows for customization by your Miura dealer. With the standard 8gm weight included, the head weight of each iron aligns perfectly with today’s equipment standards, allowing for the IC 601 to be custom fit with the same shaft you currently play or to be fit with custom options, regardless of the weight of the shaft. The inner cavity of the head allows for a wider sole and ability to enhance the low center of gravity. The way the club head sits at address, thanks in large part to the shape of the sole, will give the golfer confidence and with a larger sweet spot comes more forgiveness from the 4 iron thru the pitching wedge. The lie angles can be adjusted which will allow the IC 601 to be custom fit by an Authorized Miura dealer.
Miura Forging Process
Miura's forging techniques rearrange the molecular structure of the mild steel in a pattern that is uniform throughout the club head. This eliminates void spots in the club face. This process assures that every Miura club in your bag has the distance control, ball flight, spin, and feel that any golfer should demand. This tightness in the grain structure of the metal is what gives Miura made clubs the controlled, soft feel that other manufacturers cannot achieve. Miura also uses a proprietary "spin welding" process to produce the industries' most consistent hosel. This unique procedure ensures that the bore depths and hosel heights are identical on every Miura made head and the shaft of every club will be perfectly centered.
Where does the famous "Miura feel" come from?
Since Katsuhiro Miura began making golf clubs in 1957, Miura clubs are made one by one, using many handcrafting processes, and will never be mass produced. Special forging techniques assure that the grain of the steel in each club will be fine and uniform, with no voids or tiny bubbles that could interfere with the famous Miura purity of the strike. This grain, more comparable to a jar of sand than a jar of marbles, is the result of careful and patient forging and finishing, and it is this that sets Miura apart from other clubs.
Why choose Miura Golf Irons?
Miura Golf of Japan makes the world's finest forged golf clubs. They are designed and manufactured by patriarch and club expert Katsuhiro Miura with the help of his sons Yoshitaka and Shinei, both of whom he trained. People are amazed that master craftsman Katsuhiro Miura, who is often referred to in the Japanese media as having the Hands of God, actually works hands-on in his factory every day. He passes down his knowledge and skills to his two sons, and even grinds the club heads himself as well.
His endless quest for the perfect club has brought to the world over 10 series of Miura clubs, a number that continually grows as he continues his meticulous refinement.
When golfers see a Miura club for the first time, and actually hold it in their hands, there is a common shared experience - love at first sight. We aren't even joking. We have seen the effect in our Manchester fitting facility so many times.
Miura makes its forged clubs -- irons, wedges and putters -- in the company's one factory and one forge, both in the city of Himeji, which was for centuries the seat of the ancient Japanese art of samurai sword making. While demand for those weapons has diminished, the generations of steelmaking skill and passion have not - and these are the attributes that the Miura family brings to the creation of the world's best golf clubs.
Major Championship wins
Among professional golfers, the Miura name is well-known. Indeed, before he made clubs under his own name, Katsuhiro Miura supplied many top Touring Professionals with the clubs they used to win Major Championships. Out of deference to those players and their current endorsement relationships, Katsuhiro Miura does not discuss them specifically. Instead, he focuses on the design and manufacture of his current clubs, which are to him the highest expression of his decades-long quest for golf club perfection.
