What is a C grind and what purpose does it serve?

Quote from: WXR
the C-Grind relieves theheel, toe and trailing edge for more versatility and improved turf interaction

I think I have a callaway pamphlet laying around with different grinds...  Ill go hunt it down...

Jr,
 The C-grind sole design has relief in the heel and toe areas for shot versatility, a rolled leading edge for minimal digging, and a beveled trailing edge for reduced turf drag and lower bounce. The grind is very good for a variety of lies around the greens and for playing out of firmer sand traps.
Thanks,
Chip

Ray,
Miura actually sells me raw heads that are 15-20 grams heavy, so I can dial in the final weight which is generally around 300 grams +/- depending on the loft, length, shaft, final swingweight desired etc.. The heads I get have fairly large soles, so that is where almost all the weight is ground from. The heads in the picture are a brand new release and really look nice!
Thanks,
Chip

Andy,
Thanks, these are the first one's to arrive since you asked me about them many months ago! They did a very nice job on them. I am going to put satin chrome on mine, but they could be set up "as is" (raw). I could also go with oil, black ox or 3X finishes.

Chip, any photos of the face? Do you sell these wedges? What lofts are available? It almost looks like the loft is stamped after production. Is the head originally without the loft stamp, then the wedge is bent to the desired loft and stamped accordingly?

Chip those are really nice wedges, I like the design, graphics and look of them Raw. I bet the price is not cheap though, but if you must have the best these look great  ;).

Jr,
I will post some pics of the face tomorrow. I do sell these wedges and all Miura products. They come raw and unstamped in 52,56 and 60 degree lofts. Note the pictures-1 line 52*, 2 lines 56* and 3 lines 60*. They are done this way so they can be bent to desired lofts and marked accordingly. I can easily build a wedge with any loft from 50*- 62*. So, I adjust the loft to spec, custom grind and then hand stamp. Then they are finished, if desired.
Thanks,
Chip

Hello Kevin,
They do cost more than the normal production model Miura wedges. They would run in the $220-$250 area depending on shaft and the finish desired. A Raw finish is the least expensive and chrome is the most expensive.
Thanks,
Chip

Chip,

A picture at address would be appreciated.  May be in the market....

How does the spin compare to wedges that larger OEM's are putting out these days?

Jim... I love my Miuras!!  I will never go back to Vokeys.

Spin:  I think they spin &  stop more than spin mills without eating your golfballs up.  With these you don't have to wear down the face so there will be some of the golfball left after a full swing like the spinmills.  I've found Miuras to be easier to hit... prob due to the grind on them and only have postive things to say about them.

I love my black series Muira wedges. Like Andy said, the grooves put tons of spin on the ball without shredding the hell outta your golf balls. Not to mention the feel you get from a Miura wedge, which is far superior to any other wedges I have tried.

 :agree:

I love mine and won't go back to anything else, spin the ball like crazy and have an amazing feel to them. Highly recommend them if anyone is in the market for some new wedges.
