My next set i get, i will need to save up for, is going to be one of these 2 brands. Leaning towards Miura just because they are a little more affordable. Has anyone tried either of these and have opinions or thoughts on them?

 

 Are they worth the money? Which  set of Muira's do you recommend?

I've played the 1008s for the last 1.5 years, and Baby Blades before them (along with all Miura Wedges).  Prior to those, I was playing some Epon 301s.  The Miuras are fantastic forged irons.  The feel is the perfect balance of firm and soft.  Firmer than Epon, softer than Titleist, (forgings) and they look amazing.

The thing I think most people miss is that the tolerances and quality control are also second to none.  I've had irons heads where the hosels are so big that the shafts have to be shimmed, and the weights vary from head to head of the same iron.  With Miura, all the specs have been far tighter in my experience.

I have zero experience with Seven, but milling clubs from a solid block is EXPENSIVE.  There's actually a Tyson Lamb video where he's talking about one piece putters and how you have to mill a 10 lb billet to get a one pound putter.  Expensive, and really not particularly advantageous in my opinion.  Now I can't really speak to the specifics of the metal Seven is working with - but one of the advantages to forging heads is that it forces the grain to align within the metal which creates a more consistent material (particularly with regards to energy transfer).  If they're taking a forged chunk of steel and then milling it, that's great, however if they're just taking a non forget chunk and milling it - it would seem like a bit of a waste.  

Again, I know nothing about Seven, but Miuras have been great to me.

I've play the miura tc501 for a few years they are the perfect clubs for me. The feel is unbelievable and I have no desire to try anything else.
Talked my friend into trying the ic-601's loves them and his hcp has dropped from 16 to 12 and he's really enjoying the game.

I haven't played either but I've been playing a set of Yururi 53*, 57* & 61* Gekku wedges for 3 years.  I've replaced the 61 a couple times.  They are forged in the same factory as the Miura....where Samurai swords were made hundreds of years ago.  I've loved these wedges and think they are superior to offerings from the big companies.  I would love a set of Miura blades and was pointed in that direction until I discovered the reincarnation of Hogan golf.  Their blades are so nice and they cost a fraction of what Miura charges.

I was shocked to see a Miura review, from a former Spy, on Plugged-In Golf’s website that said the Miuras he tried didn’t feel great, and weren’t very forgiving . Shocked. First negative I’ve read!!!

I think people expect Miuras to feel soft like a Mizuno or other forged head. But the miuras aren’t a soft feeling head. They are more a dense and solid feel. So when people hit them even on a flushed shot they get something different than expected and the don’t like it. 
 

Ive had cb57 and have cb301 and have hit the 1957 baby blades (talk about small and old school). I absolutely love the feel and sound of miuras.

I’ve only hit them once during a fitting for shafts back in 2014. They were CB-501 and I loved them! Just couldn’t afford them!

They are expensive. The cb57 I got for a steal and are one of two sets of clubs I wish I never got rid of. I dumped my pxgs to get the cb301.
