Introducing the Miura Global Tour Wedge – Originally released more than a year ago in Japan as the MG S-01 the new Tour Wedge is a more compact version of that very same wedge. While players loved the soft feel of its unique forged FE99.3% material the top request of the original MG S-01 was to shrink it’s size down a bit, reduce the offset and narrow the sole. This new Tour Wedge is all that and then some… Please follow the jump for more photos…
What I love about the Miura Global model is the clean stamping used. The Japan model has multiple fonts and all sorts of unnecessary text. Cleaner the better in my opinion.
The Miura Tour Wedge has a somewhat wide sole and a thicker top line. It has a good amount of trailing, heel and toe relief for the better player. The neck is a little high and a touch chunky but all this extra heft provides a noticeable increase in forgiveness.
The Miura Tour Wedge has a beautiful shape. The higher lofts have slight onset while the lower lofts have virtually none. Its top line has more roundness to it than other Miura wedges.
The face shape dead on is also great looking. the 1st groove sits very close to the leading edge and in all lofts the toe side of that edge raises quick lending itself to a beautiful rounded shape overall.
All in all its a big improvement over the original Japanese version MG S-01. It went from an almost oversized wedge geared to forgiveness into a more compact players shape far easier on the eye. I rate its aesthetics high along with its feel and forgiveness. Hope you enjoyed the read if you would like to purchase one of these you may do so by “clicking here”
