    919.

    That’s remarkable Brooks would upgrade when you won 3 majors, and now 4?

    Anyone have some pictures of the forged and tour after using them? Just looking to see how they wear with the finish.

    If anyone has 919 Tours in standard Specs, factory build with LZ 6.5, possibly looking to swap for a sick set of irons that are limited release Fromm Cally 🤫🤫🤫

    here are my most used clubs - 6 and 8 iron.

    I got them first week of release so guessing 50 times on the course and practicing between 1- 4 times a week with them. soooo much better than the 900s finish.

    I walk when in Scotland and in Houston till it warms up too much, using a cart right now. Seems bag chatter in the Hoofer is good.

    I do keep very good care of them.

    Does anyone have a list of who on tour is gaming mizuno irons, and which model? Seems the trend has been away from MPs and into JPX.

    I imagine I'll be replacing my mp5s in a year or three due to wear and tear....but I'm afraid going to JPX will cost me some feel and shot shaping.

    Here's the list: https://golf.mizunoeurope.com/pro-tour/
    Brooks and Sung Kang though are uncontracted.

    I love Mizuno irons, but comparing what works for touring pros and what works for us amateurs is laughable. I think Brooks could score with Spaulding Executives ......

    Well I have been planning to wait for the MP 20s to come out but DDs lured me in with the July sale. I just place a order of 4 and 5 919f, and 6-pw 919t with a 919 hmp 4 iron bent to 18° to act as a 2 iron. I have been wanting to try the modus 120x hard stepped to see if it brings the flight and spin down a touch. For the cost of reshafting what I have, I'm only spending a couple $$$ more. This was my logic anyway! Haha! Looking forward to trying the tours. I loved the forged long irons but ended up not really enjoying the forged in the short irons.

    Very interested in this thread as I am leaning toward building a set of 919F and 919 tours. Iron play drops off at my 5 iron so I am thinking of going 919 tour 7-pw, 919 forged 6-4. Also looking at the hot metal Pro for my 4 iron. If anyone has long term experience with a set like this let me know!

    I've been think about a combo set of forged and tours for since last fall. I feel like these blend nicely at the 5 or 6 iron. Hopefully I like the results. If not, MP 20s here I come!

    I think the soles are awkward on the 919F. I'd go 5-PW in the Tour and then a HMP 5 iron .5 inch long (essentially a Tour 4 iron).

    Took the plunge and bought a set of forged 919s. I just took them out tonight, really liking the long irons. I can see why people want to combo them with the tours, perhaps I should have but the price I got for them on ebay was just too good.

    glad I am still loving the Tours, they are wearing very well too, still in great condition and I have had them since release week.

    Only other iron I like this year are the Blueprints and that's including the new Mizunos.

    919 Tours are best irons I've every played. I discovered I needed more forgiveness through the turf vs missing from the center of the club. These fit the bill

    I’m not going to lie, but I am a bit disappointed in the 919Ts. I’ve lost at least a club from my 716 AP2’s. Lofts are the same on both sets, but I was fit for a different shaft. AP2s were X100s, and the 919s are Rifle Blank 6.0’s, so obviously a softer and higher spinning shaft. Could a shaft issue be causing a 15 yard difference in the two? Feel is amazing on the 919’s, but they just seem to go nowhere and drop out of the sky for me. Thoughts?

    FWIW ... Had a new set of HMPs for about a month. The 4-iron is my favorite club. Never said that about any other set of irons I've owned.

    dam. well if there is not enough spin they won't fly.

    My Tours were the same length as my Mp5s with same shaft, just a lot more forgiving and better looking.

    I just switched from epon 703/303 combo or pxg 0211 to the 919 forged with ctaper and I’m happy with things so far. They are long for me and feel good. Maybe not as good as a well struck blade but they aren’t close to being unpleasant. But let’s be honest for a second. I’m on GolfWRX I have an issue with changing clubs and I’d love to say these will be it but they probably won’t. But for now I’m enjoying them.

    Been playing a 919F 5i, and 919T 6-P since release, have another identical custom set being built now with LZ blackout and a new T7 45/49 as the PW/GW combo. I may even buy another set when prices drop next summer.

    Switching from the 850 forged, How are the 919 forged sole grinds and turf interaction compared/contrasted from the 850s?

    I've had two rounds with the them since getting them in Friday. One round was payed on a course with thin baked out fairways here in MD ---where it was a bit of a struggle to hit them cleanly consistentley.
    The other round was played in a course with Bermuda fairways which are very full and lush right now. I was flushing them from those lies.
    Which kind of confuses me. I thought these might be on the lower end of bounce compared to some irons ?
    They just seemed to glide right through the "fluffier" Bermuda.

    Has anyone hit either of these against the Cobra Forged Tec Black? I currently have the Cobra's and am curious how they compare in terms of distance, forgiveness, and feel. I haven't gamed Mizunos since T-Zoids II and would love to give them another go.
