Today I’m going to do a quick introduction of the all new Miura Giken CB-1007 Forged Cavity Back Iron. We received a loaner head for photos which we have to unfortunately return so we won’t be able to shaft it up and test it so this post instead will be a brief intro into Miura’s latest athlete model offering. The CB series has always been the more compact cavity back made for the better golfer. The previous model, the CB-1006 was released back in 2006 so the launch of the CB-1007 was long overdue.
Miura irons are very much based on feel which is not only attributed to their soft premium S25C forgings but also their designs. CB-1006 was already aimed at purer feel though the use of a muscle power hump. The CB-1007 design is more intricate, with a cavity that features multi thickness to both mimic the feel of a muscle back and to control weight distribution.
The thickest portion of the cavity is right in the center and Miura designed the thick part to extend vertically up and down, the typically striking pattern of a better golfer. The second level of thickness fans outwards and is not quite as thick as the center. This distributes weight outwards and lower to maintain a healthy launch and add some forgiveness while still providing feel.
Like all CB models or all Miura models for that matter, the topline is quite thin and the offset quite minimal. With very little cavity and a narrow sole, the CB-1007 is designed to appear like a blade at address promoting workability and control.
As better players prefer, the CB-1007 features a sharp face profile with a thin and straight top line. The toe is boxy and high while the heel area is shorter. The tall toe promotes using the height of the face for spin control and provides a confident appearance at address. To compensate for the narrow sole, the leading edge is slightly rounded to add some versatility. The new CB-1007 does sport conforming USGA V grooves for tournament play.
The all new Miura Giken CB-1007 Forged iron is a good looking cavity back. Compared to previous heads its design is cleaner and less cluttered with a simple MG and CB-1007 in the cavity. Miura still insisted on leaving the W.D.D. Accurate Forged on the head but if they had taken that off or put it on the neck instead, the head would look even cleaner and less cluttered. Fans of Miura will love this iron mostly for its pure feel thanks to its muscle back like design. The new CB-1007 is available now through TSG as heads only or built to spec with your favorite shaft and grip. Look for it in the pro shop in the next few days!
