Miura Golf has announced their forged New Wedge Series which according to the company, “preserve the eternal elements of the “old” Series and adds refinements that make the clubs a pleasure to look at and a joy to play.”
Available in odd-numbered lofts from 51 degrees through 59, the New Series has redesigned bounce angles and even a Japanese character — or kanji — that translates best as “striving,” or “noble effort.”
“Shinei Miura and his brother Yoshitaka, with help from their father, Mr. Miura, have come up with a truly artistic set of refinements for our wedges,” said Adam Barr, president of Miura. “Significant changes don’t have to be big. After watching and listening to hundreds of players, the Miura family learned a great deal about how golfers like their wedges to get through the turf. So while some of our bounce angles haven’t changed in terms of number of degrees, subtle improvements in the overall sole shape have made more effective bounce angles that the Miuras are very proud of.”
Suggested retail price is $235 with several shaft and grip options at additional cost.
