Muira KM-007 Mallet Putter
...A Sure-Fire Stroke Cutter!
To golfers, the putter is a personal thing. It takes time to get use to using a putter and usually nearly one-half of your score is based on how well you putt.
Taking on the Miura KM-007 mallet putter became a very serious assignment for those of us at GoGolfandTravel.com. There are literally hundreds of putters on the market. So, how do we give one putter a review without taking on others? But, we did.
For the first half-dozen balls I struck, the distance to the hole was short compared to the white hot I’m accustomed. However, after a dozen or so putts, there was no comparison to the solid feel the KM-007 delivered. I like the shape, the look, the feel and the positive response the KM-007 mallet putter gave me within less than 10 minutes on the putting green.
The KM-007 Miura mallet putter is the fourth of five putters they offer. The KM stands for the company’s founder, Katsuhiro Miura. He begins the creation as all Miura putters using a billet of the finest quality of low-carbon steel. Once forged into the proper raw shape, the KM-007 mallet is computer-numeric controlled and milled into an elegant mallet-shaped design to please the eye of players looking for some heft behind the ball.
We discovered that the KM-007 provided us a more face-balanced option for this style and other styles of putters. Gofers also have the option of selecting the KM-350, which is a heel-shafted model that is relatively short from heel-to-toe and appeals to players with more of a fan-shaped putting stroke. Miura also offer the KM-005 and the KM-006, whose shaft intersection point is closer to the center of the putter face. These are known as “quarter-hang” models that are balanced mostly for back-and-through swingers. We found that the KM-007 works well for that kind of stroke too.
Mr. Miura felt the company needed to take care of mallet players. He came up with a design that we feel is pleasing to the eye and also offers a soft feel. We like the fact that the mallet putter has a non-glare, milled finish. As already stated, putting is very personal and Miura created a handsome look as well as a solid feel.
We at GoGolfandTravel.com are please to give a solid endorsement to the KM-007 Miura mallet putter. This is a winner and now in my bag until Miura comes along with a better putter.
