    Would love to hear your thoughts when you hit them.




    Hit them for the first time in the course yesterday. All i can say is this combo is GREAT! Only complain i can think if is that the topline is bit too thick for my liking. Oh! n the modus 125 is heavy. Really really good shaft but heavy.....



    The CB1008 is really forgiving for my swing n the feel is just sweet. soft yet dense. Highly recommend it!




    Top line is thick? Wow really? Doesn't look anymore thicker than the CB 57.



    Post some pics!!




    Was comparing the top line to the baby blades that I played. Lol



    Been playing this regularly for the past few weeks and I strongly stand by what I said. It's really really forgiving by miura's standard. Tried it against the tmb(which is the most forgiving set I have) and I dun think it's any less forgiving.



    Removed the black paint on the matte grey area(the circle part) and loved it. Looks so clean!



    Guys, u can order with less offset. Almost anything is customizable as long as u r willing to wait. But personally I didn't think the offset was that bad and I came from playing baby blades.




    Wait, you can get these with zero offset and a square toe? Please say no!!

    I've talked with Chris at tourspec. They are still available with reduced offset and copper underlay. And you can choose the paint fill and finish. I've been lusting after these for awhile!! The Miura rep in the ATL has a set. He told me they look even sexier in the flesh.

    Are these the JDM version of the 57's? Do they have the same leading edge grind as the 57's?

    More along the lines of the cb 57 being the North American variant of the cb-1007.

    Just put these in play with a c-taper 125 S+. Pure heaven!! They feel more like a blade yet forgiving and buttery soft. I'll be playing these until the grooves are completely worn out a la Bernhard Langer with his Hogan irons back in the day.

    Anyone have a side by side comparison with the CB 57s?

    Did you get a custom grind done or are these stock?

    I thought I read the 1008's launched higher than the 57s. Any truth to that? Asking for a friend (seriously).

    What did you end up shafting your 57s with?

    How's that working out for you? I'm looking to build either the CB57 or CB 1008.

    I'm actually loving the cb's. I thought I would be a blade guy forever, but the cb's play similar to a blade with a perfect profile.



    The CB 1008 looks interesting as well. I also would love to see a cb and 1008 head side by side at address. The 1008 looks to have a thicker top-line with a rounder toe.

    Not worth comparing. The 1008 has the typical Japan influenced toe. Same ordeal with most of their Miura Giken stuff.



    The cb 57 and MB 001 have the shapes to appeal to the North American golfer, but outside of that not sure what or how the MG line will survive in NA.

    I just took delivery on a full set of 1008's from Chip Usher. Great irons, I also have a set of 501's



    Both irons feel great, the 501's can dig a bit on soft fairways, but the 1008's with the turned down edge really work great on soft fairways.



    The irons are long, I feel like I am getting a extra 10 yards on every iron, but I am still in the honeymoon period so give me a couple rounds.

    For a six iron the offset looks really big. I would hate to see what the offset is on a four iron compared to this six iron.....

    Really classy looking. Abundance of JDM choices out here in HK, and Miura doesn't seem to be making much of an effort here compared to the likes of Epon, etc.

    Had the opportunity to hit these and, well, they're incredible. But I couldn't justify paying Miura prices ($285/head) when I was getting the same performance out of the Srixon 765s ($140/head) which also felt amazing and are of comparable forging quality (Endo).

    Thinking of ordering a custom set from TSG, the options they offer are impressive. I'll get the reduced offset, sharper toe, thinner topline, v sole grind, and copper underlay satin finish. Wondering how they compare to the cb57's in terms of feel, forgiveness, and size.

    I had a custom set made a while ago and quite frankly the mg 1008 was the worst Miura iron I have ever play and I love the brand. To see hem now marketing them as "new" also seems pretty lazy.

    Not sure if you Miura lovers have seen the newly released CB 1008 from Miura Giken. Man, maybe i should have waited and got these instead of my Yoro MP 5s....



    I love the lines of this iron. The look is just classic and simple.







    These are my FAVORITE Miura model! Very forgiving and the feel is soft as can be.

    How do these compare to the Bridgestone J40 and the Mizuno MP18 SC in terms of heel to toe length?

    I have hit these and was quite impressed. Has anyone picked up a set recently and compared? Recent glowing review in Plugged In Golf. Very seriously thinking of getting a set.

    I played the bridgestone j40cb's for two seasons and the miura's this past season. J40's were shafted up with modus 125's and the miura with shimada tours. Flushed shots on both clubs felt the same, ball flight was also similar. My misses are slight toe hits and the bridgestones were slightly better in the forgiveness department. Both sets are top notch.

    Ordered the miura's from a Japanese golf shop through global rakuten. The store was one2one. Ordered the clubs with less off set, thinner top line, y cut sole, and nickel satin finish.
