Miura CB-301 Vs Miura CB-302 Irons Comparison Overview
Miura is a company known for exquisite-feeling irons. They typically use premium metals for their irons and forge them to near perfection.
Two examples of Miura’s commitment to quality are the Miura CB-301’s and the Miura CB-302’s.
It should be noted that the Miura CB-301 irons and the Miura CB-302 irons are very similar in most respects.
The Miura CB-302’s were released essentially to replace the Miura CB-301’s.
But you can still buy the Miura CB-301’s (and usually for a lower price than the 302’s) so we have prepared the following comparison overview to help you decide which Miura irons would be best for you.
Miura CB-301 Irons Comparison Overview
“The profile of the Miura CB-301 irons can be described with one word: moderate.”
It really seems like Miura was trying to go right through the middle of the road with the Miura CB-301’s.
What we mean is that the topline is moderately thick, the soles are moderately thick and the offset is, you guessed it, moderate.
At address, the Miura CB-301’s have more of a game improvement look to them than anything else. But that doesn’t mean they look bad. The Miura CB-301’s are fully forged cavity back irons.
Our testers were averaging 167.6 yards with the 6-iron after three swings each. The Miura CB-301’s are good distance irons for players who aren’t putting a premium on forgiveness.
Miura CB-302 Irons Overview
“The Miura CB-301 irons feature a nice satin chrome finish and the almost obligatory S20C soft carbon steel forging.”
Compared to the Miura CB-301’s the Miura CB-302’s have a more refined sole and leading edge. They produce a low/mid launch that can be manipulated nicely.
They are about as forgiving as the Miura CB-301 irons – meaning that severe mis-hits near the toe and sole are punished with wide divergence and lowered ball speed.
But if you make contact with the sweet spot, you will be rewarded with a very smooth, affirming feel and straight flight.
However, the Miura CB-302’s didn’t play as long for our testers as the Miura CB-301’s. They were averaging 161.9 yards with the Miura CB-302 6-iron.
“The Miura CB-301’s are better distance irons – even if they aren’t significantly forgiving. The flight of the Miura CB-302’s is workable so we think mid handicappers would do well with them.
The Miura CB-301’s would also work well for mid handicappers who need distance above all else.”
