Conclusion: Just got fitted for the CB 501's in portland oregon and birdiefinish. They have the most advanced system for getting you fitted. I can honestly say these are a work of art as far as irons go. The contact is amazing and believe me average players can hit them. They will make you a better player.
Conclusion: Miura irons are purchased by the club though so the price is actually inline with others in that a 5-pw set can be had for 1200 U.S. and I do think that they are 20% better than any iron that I've ever hit. Mizuno and KZG are close but I still think that Miura is the undiputed champ!
Conclusion: Like most of you that have played for many many years, I have played with many different sets of clubs whether my own or hitting a friends. I came across the Muria's at a golf shop in the the town where I live. Every time I would drop in I would grab one and start hitting balls into the net. It was just love. Never have I felt any club so pure, so perfect feeling. It tells you everything. So I saved up my pennies and purchased the 301's. Worth every thing I paid.
Conclusion: Erik, you lucky duck, you're the envy of everyone here! Early last year I was at a really good range/pro shop as I started looking at new irons. The guy in the shop saw me admiring the Miuras and asked if I wanted to demo it. I knew I'd never afford it and told him so, but he didn't have to twist my arm too much. I believe it was the CB-202, and WOW, that was sweeter than any club I've ever hit.
Conclusion: Will, quite honestly, one of two things... either I'll play them separately (the Blades when I'm feeling good, the CB-501s when I need to score) or I'll make a mixed set - CB-501 3I, 4I, 5I and Blade 6I-PW or something. Also, Dave may borrow a set when he competes in the National Club Pro this year. I must admit, it took me awhile to hit the Blades. Not because I was afraid of them at all, but because I didn't want to dirty them up. They're so beautiful!
Conclusion: Thanks for the wonderful review. I wish I had the money for these. SInce you only need one set may I ask what you are going to do with the other. My new Ogio bag is lonely and could use some company with a classicly beautiful set such as those above, Ha HA just kidding. I think I'll wait for the next Mizuno MP though if I run into some money a set of Miuras are tops on my list.
