Those who are looking for maximum length will get their money's worth with the new IC-601 from Miura. Because the traditional Japanese manufacturer has really exhausted all possibilities here. Here Miura makes use of the effect of an 8 gram weight screw and thus strengthens the impact. Due to a low center of gravity even shots with low speed reach their maximum length. The IC-601 from Miura is especially suitable for players with medium and high handicaps.

Our impression on the IC-601
With this iron, Miura deviates from its traditional forging process and presents a so-called Inner Cavity Iron of the next generation. The weight screw directly behind the middle of the clubface is elementary.
When you look at the 601, you will undoubtedly notice two things: the offset is large and the topline is very wide. Depending on which iron you are used to, the IC-601 requires a certain amount of adjustment. The wide topline conveys a lot of self-confidence. With long irons you can even see the cavity in the setup position. This also gives you self-confidence, but may disturb some players. Especially because they are not used to it. Here you can see that the 601 is especially wide - not only with the topline. That definitely helps in terms of launch. Because the further the center of gravity is behind the clubface, the easier the launch becomes. And that is definitely the case with the 601.
The iron doesn't sound as rich as a Miura Cavity Back iron. You just notice that there's more technology behind it and that it's not completely forged the traditional way. But of course you have to say that the iron is very forgiving. Even though the clubface itself is not as large as with comparable irons.
The performance of the IC-601 is good even though Miura has taken a new direction in the manufacturing process. The 601 is definitely an option for players who want a lot of offset and a high launch, and get used to things like a broad topline quickly.
