Very Miura, Very Limited: Black Boron Finish Irons
These irons are so painstakingly made that Miura can only promise about 10 sets every other month. The Boron finish is a delicate manufacturing process that requires switching over the finishing production line from the usual nickel chrome setup. So far, we have made our CB-501 and Passing Point 9003 in this new Black Boron; the initial sets sold out rapidly.
"We've found black finishes so popular that we really had to look into making these, even though we can only manage small quantities and maintain Miura standards," said Adam Barr, president of Miura. The Black Boron's color density makes it look more deeply black than other black finishes; that's partially a result of the process, which gets the boron deep into the finish. The coloring is very durable as well. And the Black Borons offer one more black option for Miura enthusiasts. Our other black finish, the one on the Limited Forged Black Blades and Black Wedges, fades over time into a silvery-grey patina.
Suggested retail cost of the Black Boron irons will be $2275 for a set (4-PW) or $325 per club. Players interested in a Black Boron set should consult www.MiuraGolf.com to find a Miura authorized dealer/fitter, or send an email to email@example.com.
