Miura Golf is now pleased to announce the release of their new hollow-body iron.

The IC-602 is a multi-material hollow bodied iron delivering both distance and forgiveness. Shinei Miura has seamlessly blended modern technology with the renowned look, feel and sound of a Miura forged iron. Although designed with advanced players in mind, the IC-602 delivers shot making confidence to golfers of all skill levels.

The solid feel and sound of the IC-602 was engineered with golfers of all skill levels in mind— including lower-handicap players who seek maximum compression to the ball regardless of swing path or attack angle. The Miura Versatile Sole (MVS) delivers solid contact with unparalleled turf interaction, allowing golfers to feel the club head release. A perfectly positioned center of gravity leads to maximum ball speed and ideal launch angles throughout the bag. Long irons fly higher and farther, while mid and short irons deliver the optimal ball flight, spin and predictable distance control.

“The feedback we received from our customers regarding the creation of our new hollow body iron, was that they had no expectations about Miura being the longest one around, but rather would be loyal to the brand providing we deliver a sound and feel consistent with our forged models,” said Shinei Miura. “This epiphany allowed my design process on the IC-602 to become laser focused.”

Great iron play has often been defined solely by attack angle, but Miura’s proprietary fitting data has highlighted the correlation between Face Progression (FP) and impact loft angle. Understanding this relationship has enabled the Miura craftsmen to balance those variables in the IC-602. The result is Miura’s most technologically advanced iron ever, delivering consistent club head speed through impact and an ideal launch angle, for every IC-602 iron a player hits.

“Shinei saw an opportunity to design a hollow-bodied iron that could deliver both distance and forgiveness, and believed that he was capable of creating one worthy of the Miura name,” said Bill Holowaty, COO, Miura Golf. “The IC-602 is proof that he was right. Those looking for the coveted performance, look, feel and sound of a Miura iron will not be disappointed.”

“From the confidence that is gained when you see the clean, minimal offset look of the iron, to the top-line thickness and club head length, the IC-602 meets the most discerning needs of golfers at all skill levels. The MVS sole design strikes the perfect balance between bounce angle and sole width, which results in solid contact regardless of a player’s swing plane or turf conditions,” Holowaty added.

The body of the IC-602 is made from 8620 soft carbon steel, which works seamlessly with the durable chromium molybdenum that is used in the 3 to 9 irons. S35C steel, known for its consistency and reliability, is used for the “scoring clubs” — pitching and gap wedges. Inside the hollow-bodied design is a Tungsten weight which promotes a deeper center of gravity and higher launch. Finally, an injected polymer ensures the IC-602 delivers the sound and feel of a Miura iron.

“What impresses me most about the IC-602 is how Shinei merged the legendary, old-world craftsmanship that his family is known for with new advancements in launch technology and materials,” said Hoyt McGarity, CEO of 8AM Golf. “He made his vision a reality and the golfing world is the beneficiary.”

The IC-602 irons are available in 3-GW.
