When Shinei Miura was designing the new MC-501, his focus was directed to ball contact and control. The Miura family’s reputation for delivering clubs with maximum playability and renowned feel was also an integral part of the new design. Although a typical Blade model would target a specific skill set, Shinei wanted this model to have appeal beyond the low handicapped player. One first notices that the sole design of the MC-501 is wider than a typical muscle back iron. Combining this with what is the biggest (longest from heel to toe) of any blade model ever produced by Miura will appeal to both Blade and Cavity Back players alike.
