Miura SIT Driver
The SIT-460 (SIT stands for Strong & Ideal Trajectory) has an all-titanium head with a volume of 460 cubic centimeters, the maximum size allowed by the Rules of Golf. But patient and careful shaping by Shinei Miura, son of company founder and legendary club maker Katsuhiro Miura, has yielded a head that offers the golfer a much more compact look at address than other 460 cc drivers.
One of the ways Shinei accomplished this was to make the face of the driver taller than in other models. This not only makes more vertical space for overall volume, but also increases the effective hitting area.
The large face has visual benefits too: a golfer seeing the tall SIT-460 face behind the ball gets the feeling of confidence that he will definitely strike the ball solidly in the back. This design principle came from the success Miura had in 2011 with the new MG Hybrids, whose club faces are about as tall as the golf ball. That gives a good sense of "ball coverage" for the coming hit. The sole of the SIT-460 has been shaped in two subtle tiers that both distributes weight effectively and assure that the club sits squarely behind the ball at address. Even though the SIT-460 is 70 cc bigger than Miura’s previous driver, the Precious Edition 390, the new head weighs just 196 grams -- four grams less than the Precious Edition. This light weight opens up more fitting options for authorized Miura dealer/fitters, who can pair a wider range of shafts with the large, light head. Ideal for golfers wishing to lower their ball flight.
Lofts: 9 and 10.5 deg
Miura SIT Fairway
The SIT fairway woods incorporate the key design features of the popular SIT460 Driver: maximum size with a minimalist look. Through patient design and careful shaping, the Miuras were able to make woods that look compact and pleasing to the eye, but still pack as much explosive mass as possible behind the ball. These clubs are a pleasure to hit and will enhance any bag’s strategic long-game arsenal.
Lofts available: 15 deg and 18 deg.
Miura HB3 & HB4 Hybrid
The HB3 adopts a blade-like face design, to extend to the hybrids the same sense of security golfers feel with Miura irons. Now, the more advanced player can work a hybrid into his bag confidently and hit the shot he intends, instead of wondering whether the flight will flare off line. The sole uses a circle cut sole method where a second tier; a step is created thus moving the centre of gravity in it's optimal location. Not as low as other brands, to ensure the ball flight is still strong enough to beat the wind.
Other features are more subtle, but no less important. The I.P. black finish makes the MG look more compact, which focuses player concentration at address. And the sole relief in the toe and heel is calculated to optimize the clubs journey through impact. Available in 20 and 23 deg lofts.
Miura may be best known for their irons and wedges, but they cover the full range of equipment with a superb range of woods and hybrids.
