Miura PI-401 Golf Irons
Made from premium S35C carbon steel, the face of the PI-401 at 3.6mm will help deliver increased ball speed with higher trajectory. With optimal face thickness and larger sweet spot, the PI-401 sounds as good as it looks. Optimizing turf interaction was key in the development of this revolutionary sole design. The wider sole features four separate angles highlighted by the leading-edge grind. This specific grind ensures less resistance through the turf, the best ball on face contact, which in turn delivers a desired trajectory. The PI-401’s unique sole design allows for high performance and shot making from a variety of liesand conditions. With just the right amount of face progression, the PI-401 head shape is appealing to both beginners and advanced players alike.

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?
At Scottsdale, it's a question we are often asked. Once golfer's hit one, the answer is in the feel. Here is a little bit of history of the brand and why Miura irons should be a serious consideration for all golfers.
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.
