The MB-001 is designed to achieve great playability with the look of a thin top line and a body that is compact. The graphics are clean and simple with a blade that gives the subtle appearance of being more upright. The elements of design help the MB-001 blend playability with performance.
The MB-001 design is the result of years of study and careful consideration of iron performance by the Miura family. Yoshitaka Miura, elder son of founder Katsuhiro Miura and a club-grinding expert led the project. The MB-001 was co-designed with his brother Shinei, who supervises forging operations. The goal was to improve Turf Interaction and performance while still maintaining the look and feel of the traditional Forged Blade.
Subtle changes were made to the overall shape of the sole in both size and grind to optimize turf interaction. This improvement leads to giving the player the best chance of keeping the club face square at impact from a multitude of lies. In a properly fitted MB-001, this sole delivers a consistently sized, crisp divot that is evidence of a solid, efficient strike.
