The MC-501 targets low- and mid-handicap players who desire a very soft, forged feel, with easy turf interaction and some added forgiveness. Precision forging from premium carbon steel; low CG location due to 20g of repositioned sole weight; increased sole width and Y-grind for enhanced turf interaction. Miura’s MC Collection MC-501 irons were created to improve ball contact and control to appeal beyond the low handicapped player.
Compared to its traditional blade irons, the MC-501 is the longest blade model ever produced by Miura for blade and cavity back players who want to improve off-center strikes.
The MC-501 irons are available in 3-PW however we can do any set make up you want. These will come built to your specs with the shafts and grips of your choice which is included in the price. Graphite shafts would be slightly more. Email us to discuss your next build.
Miura has creatively removed some weight from the back to move additional weight towards the lower section of the blade for added forgiveness. The overall shape of the Miura MC-501 is a bit different than what I am used to with other muscle backs or players cavity backs. The total toe section is not as rounded which creates a squared look. The sole grind has a generous and straight leading edge relief which should help smooth out the turf interaction. These irons are very, very forgiving! From the looks of it, I initially thought it would he Y-grind (Y denotes the grinds creator, Yoshitaka Miura) softens and blunts the leading edge to promote cleaner turf interaction, especially for those with a steeper angle of attack behave more like a muscle back… but in fact, its behavior is like a forgiving cavity back. Mishits toe to heel was quite forgiving if you hit it lower on the face. worthy of the self-proclaimed title “The Modern Blade.” thin topline and still quite compact footprint and see, for lack of a better descriptor, the “X” styled cavity as dynamic and different enough to stand out in a good way. The copper-nickel satin finish is pure, and each head is still forged at Miura’s factory in Himeji, Japan from soft S25C carbon steel. When Shinei Miura and the design team were creating the MC-501, their aim was to improve ball contact and control.
MC-501 is suited for blade and cavityback players who want to improve shot forgiveness on off-center strikes. Engineers repositioned 20 grams toward the sole, thus increasing its width and strategically redistributing the clubhead’s center of gravity to help shots get airborne with more ease. The MC-501 also incorporates Yoshitaka Miura’s iconic Y-grind sole that blunts and softens the clubhead’s leading edge, to improve turf interaction.
Each clubhead is precision-forged from premium S25C soft carbon steel and then finished in a luxurious copper nickel satin for an inviting look that inspires avid golfers.
