Miura debuts its first forged and milled mallet
Miura Golf, one of Japan’s leading clubmakers, has added a fourth design to its KM collection of quality forged putters.
The KM-007, (KM stands for company founder and chief designer Katsuhiro Miura) begins as all Miura putters do, with a billet of fine low-carbon steel. Once forged into the proper raw shape, the KM-007 mallet is CNC (computer-numeric controlled) milled into an elegant form.
"Mr. Miura was looking at our putters, and felt we needed to take care of mallet players too," said Miura Golf President Adam Barr. "He came up with this design as a way to fit their eye while offering a soft, authoritative feel in a non-glare, milled finish. Miura-san understands that putting is very personal, and that a handsome look is as important as a solid feel. He didn't release this design until he was sure he had met both high standards."
The KM-007 offers a more face-balanced option within the Miura KM putter line. The KM-350, a heel-shafted model that is relatively short heel-to-toe, appeals to players with more of a fan-shaped putting stroke. The KM-005 (350g head weight) and KM-006 (370g), whose shaft intersection point is closer to the center of the putter face, are "quarter-hang" models balanced mostly for back-and-through swingers.
The suggested retail price of the KM-007 is $450.
