Hi all,
I am looking to order a custom set of MG CB-1008s.

I found this web page, but it is all in Japanese:
http://www.miuragiken.com/craftsman-world/iron-head/
I have kind of figured out some of the options, but need some help with Table 1 (options 3, 4, 5)
and Table 2. As well, I cannot figure out option 12.
Also, does anyone know the difference between Nickel-Chrome Satin and Nickel Satin?

What I have figured out so far:
FaceLine: [A2] Small Face
SoleDesign: [B3] DoubleCut Sole
TopBlade: [C1] Thin Blade
Finish: [D41] Cu Ni-Cr Satin or [D43] Cu Ni Satin
7. Loft angle: [0] no change
8. Lie angle: [0] no change
9. Face Progression: [D] + 2 mm
10. Bounce angle: [0] no change
11. Weight; [0]
12. ???
Stamp Color: [01] color dropout
Initials engraving 3 letters: No

Thanks in advance,
Isaac

    Option 12 appears to refer to the diameter of the hosel bore, so they can adjust it.
    Incidentally, you got the face progression down as +2, but from the table it appears that the CB1008s can only be adjusted 1mm either way. At least, that's the way I'm reading it. I've no experience ordering a Miura club, so don't take what I say as gospel.

    Option 3 refers to the adjustability of the outline of the head. I think it means they can do the R-shape and small-head shape (A2) with the CB1008s. Option 4 is the sole grind. The leading edge with the CB1008 appears to be their regular spec (see edit below), but they can do the trading cut sole*, double cut sole (relief on both sides?) and the "dent" sole.
    *It says "trading" but I'm wondering if it's a misprint for "trailing" as the picture seems to show some trading edge relief.
    Option 5 refers to topline adjustability; with the CB1008s, they can make the topline thicker or thinner.

    That's the way I read it, anyway.

    edit: by that, I mean the 1008 CB seems to come with a bevelled leading edge as standard.

    Hi No_Catchy_Nickname,

    Thanks so much for your translation. I think I can order now with some confidence.

    Any idea the difference between Nickel-Chrome Satin and Nickel Satin?

    Thanks again,
    Isaac

    No, I'm afraid not. My only guess is that the Nickel satin has a layer of nickel that is then brushed to give the satin finish, whereas with the Nickel-Chrome Satin, the iron has a layer of nickel, which is then chromed, and the chrome is brushed to give a satin finish. But that is pure guesswork on my part. There's no explanation on the page.

    One has a golden hue, I believe. Like the Mizuno Super 11 or Bridgestone Proisme... Nickel chrome, I think.

    Thanks Christen. I have a set of Mizuno TP 2000's that have that golden hue as well.
    I noticed in your sig that you have a K Miurawedge with nickel chrome.
    Does it have a golden hue?
