    Can you shoot a close-up pic at address?



    Also, any comparison to the CB-57s?

    No, just no.



    I am waiting on delivery of some MB-001 seven through pitching wedge. I saw the MC-501 the day after I ordered and my club fitter asked me if I wanted to cancel my order and go with the 501s. Nope.

    Miura is the offspring/offshoot of Miura Giken - Most Miura are are just a variation of the MG models for the overseas market, i.e Miura CB57 is variation of the MG CB1007 .

    Very interesting.



    Anything in particular that really jives with you when comparing the two?



    I'm a Baby Blade and CB-57 guy myself. I wouldn't play the 5005. And in all likelihood, I wouldn't play the MC-501 either.



    In addition to the Baby Blades and CB-57s, I enjoy the look of the 202, 301 and 5003. Don't own any of those, but like their shape. If I was forced and HAAAAAD to make a decision on acquiring another set it would be either the 202 or 301.

    It looks like a new version of Callaway for me. Too expensive for that.

    im liking the look of the mc501
  • HotdoctaHotdocta Members Posts: 241 ✭✭
    I just had a fitting with the mc501 and I was blown away. Surprisingly very forgiving and long. I was hitting it against my pxg 0311 and they were the same distance even though pxg is 3 degrees stronger.



    I then though I was god and tried baby blades and suddenly I was terrible. I was 15 yards shorter.



    Bottom line is I am not a blade guy but the mc501 was amazing and I am going to order them
