Miura Golf Introduces the Limited Edition Series 1957 Cavity Back Irons
Vancouver, BC – Miura Golf, the Japanese maker of the world’s finest forged irons, has added another limited edition model to its successful line of premium golf clubs. The new Limited Edition Series 1957 Cavity Back will be available at selected Miura authorized dealer/fitters around the world this month and at all Miura dealer/fitters shortly after as supplies allow.
“The CB57 design was percolating in the minds of the Miura family for some time,” said Adam Barr, president of Miura Golf. “We were anxious for it to be ready, but it has a lot of technology in that beautiful forged package. So the Miuras wanted to make sure it was absolutely right before we released it. Now, we feel confident we can meet demand in a limited edition.”
The Series 1957 line of Miura clubs, which includes the famous Small (or “Baby”) Blade and the K-Grind wedges, is a special class of Miura distinction, reserved for the most favored designs of the company. While all Miura clubs are of the highest quality, those bearing the Series 1957 crest are considered benchmarks in the history of the company and the career of founder Katsuhiro Miura. He began his career in golf club building and design in 1957 at the age of 16, as an apprentice in central Japan.
The CB57 head features a medium-sized cavity and a progressively sized weight bar to provide the benefits of perimeter weighting and solidity behind the hitting area. Still, the cavity is not so big as to interfere with the forged look and feel, especially from the address position. The weight bar keeps the center of gravity low, and changes size club-to-club as needed to position the CG not just down, but exactly where it needs to be.
The clean, narrow top line is Miura all the way. The sole of the club incorporates the decades of lessons Miura has learned from watching and talking to golfers, resulting in efficient, powerful turf interaction and the best chance of a square face at impact. The overall size of the head is a bit smaller than Miura’s successful CB-501 cavity back iron.
The CB57 will be available in limited quantities at first, like other clubs in the Series 1957 line. Suggested retail per fitted & built club will be $275, perhaps higher if certain shafts are used.
