    The one on the left in the bottom pic kinda looks like a 919 Tour.

    New stuff is coming though for sure. MP20 line in September. Looking forward to seeing more of these and even more curious about the new wedges.

    I’m waiting to see the new line to determine if I want 919 Tours or the mp20 line. S18 wedges or the T20 wedges.

    I told myself no new irons until the the new MP line comes out. Chris Voshall on TXG's youtube said something along the lines that the new irons are "not what you'd typically expect from Mizuno"....

    As a lefty, I feel like we get shunned. I wanted to try/buy the 919T's so badly but all we got recently was the Forged and the SC's. I wasn't a fan of the SC's and Forged were pretty good but wasn't quite enough to get me to buy. The 760's were coming out shortly and I wanted to wait for those. Same with Z785.

    I was NOT a fan at all of MP-25. I was going in thinking I'd get MP-54 levels of softness and feel with increased forgiveness, but to be honest the 25's were the worst Mizzy irons I've probably ever hit. Not to bash a great company but for me they were total stinkers. I understand why some companies leave the lefty offerings out for more of the high-end player's stuff, but it just means I have no choice but to give my money to companies like Taylormade or Callaway when in reality I'd probably support Mizuno or other smaller OEM's first.

    Hopefully whatever new MP line they bring out isn't like the MP-25. Personally, other than 53/54 or older, the MP line has always lagged a bit behind JPX.

    I have MP54s, great all around iron. Some have said it launches too high, I personally like a higher ball flight. The feel is amazing. I tested the mp18 sc, did not feel as nice as my 54s, but a good iron as well.

    I’m a mizzy fan as well, and a lefty! I too wanted 919 tours but have the mp18 sc which I’m completely satisfied with! But I do hope they offer the next jpx tour line in lefty! Still have a back up set of 53’s, had the 25’s and I agree, didn’t really tickle my fancy

    Didn’t get along with hitting the 25’s myself either. 54’s were phenomenal and my favorite Mizzy iron I’ve owned this far. 919 tours are coming unless this new line blows me away.

    Like a left handed blade that I shouldn't play but would anyways!

    I'd be happy if they offer up a blade in left hand. It's been way too long. I'm one of the few that like the MP25. Short irons feel great and the long irons have some help. Some don't like them but the MP18SC feels really nice to me as well. I've ho'd MP68's and MP59's in the past. I have a wide range of acceptability when it comes to softness.

    I'm in the process of moving from longtime 54's to the 18 MMC's. Different shafts (KBS --> Modus), so it's a little bit more of a change, but I'm liking them a lot.

    Always interested in what Mizuno will come out with next, tho..

    I have been very satisfied with the 919s. Even though as a lefty we don't get the tour option, they have performed well and the combo with the nippon modus 120 shaft (I have been using TTDG x100) has kept the spin rates down and distance dialed. Plus, I like the look.
