The Miura CB-2008 hand forged irons are the fourth new product since the start of the year from the traditionally minded forged iron company from Japan that again represent a new energy behind its classic shapes.
The CB-2008 two-part long irons (5- through 8-iron) feature a single-piece forged face and neck made of soft carbon steel. The face portion is as little as four millimeters thick, particularly thin for a Miura forged iron design.
The shape is backed with a stainless steel-composite piece that adds a wider sole, extra mass to lower the center of gravity and additional perimeter weighting for improved stability on off-center hits. As an example of the CB-2008’s forgiveness, the sole on the 7-iron measures some 20 millimeters from leading edge to trailing edge, the widest in a Miura forged iron.
The combination of the two pieces creates a pocket cavity to help push the center of gravity farther back for increased stability on mishits. The four multi-piece long irons are joined by single-piece forged cavity back short irons in the 9-iron and pitching wedge.
The Miura CB-2008 six-piece set (5-iron through pitching wedge) are available now at authorized retailers.
