Custom clubmaker Miura Golf has released its new SIT-460 driver, the Japanese company’s biggest driver yet. The SIT-460 (SIT stands for Strong & Ideal Trajectory) has an all-titanium head with a volume of 460 cubic centimeters, the maximum size allowed by the Rules of Golf. But patient and careful shaping by Shinei Miura, son of company founder and legendary club maker Katsuhiro Miura, has yielded what the company believes is a head that offers the golfer a much more compact look at address than other 460 cc drivers.
The face of the driver is taller than in other models, creating more vertical space for overall volume and increasing the effective hitting area.
Even though the SIT-460 is 70 cc bigger than Miura’s previous driver, the Precious Edition 390, the new head weighs just 196 grams, which is four grams less. This light weight opens up more fitting options for authorized Miura dealer/fitters, who can pair a wider range of shafts with the large, light head.
The Miura SIT-460 driver is available in 9 and 10.5 degrees of loft, right-handed only. Suggested retail price begins at $595 and varies depending on the shaft. To find a Miura dealer, go to www.MiuraGolf.com.
