The Miura CB-1008 – While it is nothing new to TSG as we have had these available for 3 years it is somewhat new to Miura Global customers. Here at TSG we believe this is by far the best shaped Miura cavity iron ever produced. Yes better than the Miuraism’s and when it comes to shape it beats out the CB57 and CB501 hands down. Before we get into this irons shape we have some other posts you may want to check out at the very end of this blog post. Please follow the jump…
Here at TSG we really stress the importance of shape. We have the most discerning clients in the world and over the years that has taught us to zero in on what matters to them. In this blog post, we are highlighting what we feel are Miuras best-shaped cavity back irons ever.
In the coming weeks, we will be showing you all Miura models number six irons and the pitching wedge. Our goal is to increase the awareness of shape with our clients. In the above photo is the six iron from address it is just about perfect with its very thin top line, beautiful neck transition and minimal offset.
This post is not meant to be a review we did our reviews years ago on this iron and link up to it at the bottom of this post. Above – the six irons sole features a noticeable leading edge relief grind to help those who may come down a little steeper on the ball. The CB-1008 sole hides its width very well.
The face shape as seen above is decent. I say decent because it appears elongated and the peak of its toe looks a little pushed out. Nonetheless, it is still better than most and this angle is not seen from address.
Moving on to the PW, the pitching wedge is always a very important club with our clients. When the customer knows their stuff they often desire great shapes in their short irons moving into their wedges. This is where a lot of Japanese brands don’t do so well. Actually, most Miura irons fail in the short iron shape department. I’m happy to say the CB-1008 does very well in this regard.
These are pretty close to perfect. If you are not sure what to look for it’s the lack of the traditional Japanese neck transition in short irons and wedges that is clunky and shovel-like. Miura has done a great job on this iron. The pitching wedge is a beauty to look down at.
With a nice width on the pitching wedges sole and the same trailing edge relief, Miura finishes off the set very well making for consistent performance and plenty of forgiveness. In general, the CB-1008 is obviously cut from the same cloth as the new Miura MC-501. Both irons are very forgiving for their size especially lower on the face, they both have a softer feel than most Miura irons and a slightly higher launch (much depends on the shaft). Now if only they could remove the busy Japanese stamping for the sleek Miura Global logo like the MC-501 is offered in.
