    Mizuno JPX 919 forged. I would try a 115 gram shaft like ctaper lite x or modus 105x at that swing speed.

    Mizuno ST190 - Kuro Kage Silver Tini 70X
    Cobra BioCell+ - Matrix Ozik Red Tie 6Q3 X
    Cobra BioCell 3-4 Hybrid - Aldila Rogue Black 85 X
    Mizuno JPX 900 Forged 4-G, KBS C Taper Lite X
    Ping Glide Stealth 2.0 - 54 and 58 - Modus 105X
    Callaway Xforged - 64 degrees

    You might as well try the Ping 410 and see if they live up to the hype! You actually mentioned playing the same irons for 10 years(a decade) on this forum?

    Find a demo day and try them all outside if possible. I’m looking at taylormade p790 and ping g410 but will hit others as well.

    If you like the 0311XF you might like ping G line (g400,g410 or g700), Callaway Rogue Standard or X or TM M CGB. All these listed are similar in offset, head size and sole width.

    Sometimes recommendations crack me up. JPX 900 Forged are not the same category of club as a 0311xf. It’s like recommending someone a 4 door sedan when they are asking for recommendations on a Full size SUV. Different models have different attributes.

    G410 and F9s are some of the best bangs for the buck out there?!

    Never know until you try. I demo'd everything excluding blades and super GI irons (many of them twice) and ended up with Srixon z585 in my fitting.

    The Ping 410 were every thing you said they were. Butter ! Very close if not on par to the PXG..and a lot easier on the wallet.

    They are pretty darn good! Trust me, would not be in my bag if they weren't lol. I'm too big of an equipment **** and I tend to be forged only.

    If you haven't bought a set of irons in 10 years I would say buy the PXG's. You will regret it if you don't and if you keep those 10 years what is the difference. If they are double the cost of the 410's as an example it is like buying a new set after 5 years. ......Buy first/justify later!

    My drive swing speed is a bit slower than yours, 90-95, and my handicap is a bit higher, 13-14. Really hard to select proper irons without a good fitting. I just had one last week. I figured I'd walk out with Ping 410s or Rogues or Mizunos. Ended up with a shaft from a manufacturer, ACCA, I've never heard of and is somewhere between a regular and stiff (you're almost certainly a stiff). When we paired that shaft with most heads, the heads (Srixon, Callaway, Ping, Mizuno) all felt okay. When we put that shaft with a Taylormade M5, it felt like angels singing when I hit the ball solidly. I don't know why. I don't know whether these things will be harder for me to control on the course. All I know is that that particular combination was better in terms of sound, feel, and distance than anything else--the Rogue head was a close second in dispersion. I'm not telling you to try that combination. I'm telling you to get fit and/or try a bunch of things. If you haven't looked much in 10 years, you'll be looking at a much more complicated array of options.

    The Maltby TS-2 are $450. They are built in the same way, forged, hollow head with urethane. Had them on a monitor back to back with the PXGs and launch and spin were nearly identical. Best deal in golf for cutting edge tech. By a long shot. .

    Problem is they arent worth $50 after you have taken delivery. Good product but with nothing slightly used.

    Well let's talk economy to scale. Buy a set of PXGs for 3k and take them home and they are worth half that IF......you can find someone to buy them at 1500.... so if I did sell the Maltbys at '$50' for some reason I'm more than ok with that instead of losing 1500.

    As i said previously the PXG are well PXG's and the 410 were butter. Was about to pull the trigger on the 410's when i stopped in for a fitting just to check out these old bones and my swing.Seems we have slowed a bit lol.So i asked the fitter pick out any thing close to the 410. He hands me a Big Bertha 2019. Nice looking, black, sleek ish not your Dads BB .Wow factor.To me they actually felt better than the 410 a club longer and much tighter groups .I think im in love lol

    I got fit on Friday... it was a very eye opening experience into my biases and what I actually need... I figured I'd end up with Pings and C-Tapers and ended up in Mizuno Hot Metal Pros with DG 120s.

    Loving mine. Had a bit of a snafu with swing weight initially (e0) +1" c-tapers. Made the decision to take a half inch off and put on a heavier grip, which brought them to around d6 - they now feel perfect.

    Anyway, back to OP, so many good choices out there - try as many as you can. The F9 wasn't even on my radar until, on a whim, i decided to hit a demo club.
