Miura says PI-401 irons are a first for them, their first game-improvement category iron or what the company is calling a “player improvement iron.”

For more than 60 years the Miura family has made top quality irons with the second generation now running the company based in Himeji, Japan. It is part of Howard Milstein’s holding company 8AM Golf which also owns GOLF magazine, Golf.com, the Nicklaus Companies and True Spec Golf plus other smaller concerns.

The PI-401s reflect the design philosophy that made the Muira name so well thought of among knowledgeable professionals and amateurs.

“We have created an exceptional iron that goes higher, straighter, and further than any club we’ve ever produced, all while maintaining our family’s standards for design and performance,” said Shinei Miura present leader at the company factory.

Hoyt McGarity, CEO of Miura Golf was quoted in the announcement, “The Miura family doesn’t design clubs based on market trends; Miura irons are produced solely by the pace of inspiration. After years of monitoring the evolution of technological innovation, the family finally felt comfortable stepping into this equipment category, designing an iron without compromise that is the perfect gateway to the Miura lineup.”
