JPX 919 Forged...hard to believe they perform better than the JPX 900 Forged

Ok all of you JPX fans out there. I absolutely love my JPX 900 forged, but I am really interested in the JPX 919 Forged. The lofts on the JPX 919 forged are more in line with smaller gaps than the JPX 900 and they have went with a completely different sole design by going away from the pre-ground leading edge and they seem larger out on the toe. I have hit them indoors only and have not hit them off of grass or had them on the course to try out. Who of you have made the switch to the 919 Forged and how are they performing for you? With the loft gaps more in line in the 919s I am even somewhat interested in a combo set of 919 Forged/919 Tours.

    I have a combo set of 919 Forged and Tours (Forged 6 & 5). I didn’t have the 900 Forged set previously, but did buy a 7 iron to get a feel for them.

    Absolutely love this set, and shot my lowest ever 9 with them last week.

    My perspective:

    Didn’t really like the 900F. I think the 919F is a significant step up. Feels better, and for some reason I just hit it better.

    I prefer hitting the 919 Tours and am very glad they are my ‘scoring’ clubs, but the Forged are very useful at the higher end of the bag as my swing speed is decent, but not ‘WRX decent.

    Tours sound better, look better, with no perceived disadvantages for a mid capper like me at the lower end of the bag. Both T&F spin well for me, though. I don’t feel like I lose spin control at all with the Forged at the upper end of the bag.

    Had the 900F's for a year and have had the 919F's for about 6-8 months. Much prefer the 919F's. In my experience, granted we are talking PX LZ vs Modus 105, the 919F's felt smoother, launched higher and were slightly more forgiving than the 900's.

    I played the 900F the majority of last season and loved them. Tied my career low 69 with them. So what did I do? In WRX fashion, sold them. Then wanted them back and couldn't find them anymore so I got a set of 919F. I like them equally as well, but haven't used them that long. They seem more forgiving to me.

    That being said, I just ordered 919T's and waiting their arrival. Want something a little better looking at address.

    I do not own the 919 but have hit them numerous times. I like the 919 less. They seem larger and chunkier in the sole and top line.

    Funny, I think the opposite; 900F is large and chunky compared to the 919F. And the sole of the 919F is miles better thru the turf for me.

    The 900F were a weird club because they had a smaller forged head, but the same lofts as the 900HM. When I was being fit, I hit both and had more ball speed, a higher launch, and more spin off the 900HM. In the 919 series the weakened the lofts of the 919F and strengthened the lofts of the 919HM, this puts some separation between the clubs and now there's more of a reason to go to the forged other than look and "feel".

    The 919F is a step up in technology with the back-milled face - lots of info on the web. Switched to them from the 900F and glad I did: a hair longer, more forgiving, and better feel. Also had gone from the Modus 105 to 120, and to a softer ball (TM Project A & TP5 from Nike RZN Platinum), and it’s all been for the better. Just have not played as much thanks to all the cool, wet weather in the NE, but looking forward to making up for that. Mizuno definitely hit it out of the park with the 919 line and the 190 woods.

    How is that chunkier? Topline is also thinner.

    Seems the lofts of the 919 make for better combo sets. But is there a big jump in offset going from the 919 tours to the forged? Would maybe go HM for the 4i, so same question there..

    I have 919 T PW thru 7, 919F 6 & 5 and a HM4

    I find the offset change more obvious moving from T to F than I do moving F to HM.

    Having said that I thought the offset on the F would really bother me, but I’ve largely found it to be a non-issue, save for the dreaded overdraw with the F & HM when my swing’s off.

    I played the 900F for 2 years and pre-ordered the 919F and have been playing them since. Both are great irons. The 919F is more forgiving in my opinion, and longer. I don't see these leaving my bag anytime soon, well at least until the next model of the Forged comes out....

    I actually aggre with ya. I think the 900 forged was the best looking JPX forged offering mizuno has made. I really liked the sole grinds on the 900 as well. As always, a new jpx forged comes out, game it for a month or less, then back to my MPs. One of these years I'll stick with a set..... maybe!

    I tried the Forged out for a month and they felt clicky and harsh. I was playing TM P770 and they felt softer, I'm now back to my MP-32 irons.

    I have played mne for two rounds and love the feel and sound. Of course I'm coming from the PING G410, so there's that 😎

    Agree. And then traded them for some 716 AP2s. Who knows how long these will last...

    How hard are the 900t and 919t’s to hit the long irons? Im considering a switch to the jpx lineup, cant decide if i want to go tours across the set or ideally combo with the forged.. ive gamed cally xforged and srixons 765s recently, any comparisons?

    Personally I do not think the JPX Tours are any easier or more forgiving than the MP 18 blades in the long irons. The JPX Tours in reality are a blade iron. They are really nice clubs but if you are looking for added forgiveness in your long irons, I do not think they are going to provide much in that department. The JPX Forged however are fantastic long irons that offer plenty of forgiveness in a players CB if there really is such a thing.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for cleaning some rust inside the cavity for the 4-7 irons? I can't seem to find a brush thin enough to get into the narrow opening. Thanks in advance.

    Mizuno claimed they were about as forgiving as the MP18 SC. Considering that they killed the SC for the MP20 line because the difference between it and the blade were too small, I think the forgiveness of the JPX 919 Tour and MP18 blade was probably very small.

    They are close for sure but the jpx is 3mm longer in blade length than the mp18 mb. Just a little friendlier to hit.

    Try a Q tip with some WD40 on it. Should do the trick.

    I went 900F to 919F to P790 and quickly back to 919F. The 919F are not quite as long as the P790 but they offer to me a consistent ball flight that I can predict the shot shape into the greens or to the targets where I was never sharp with P790. I also feel the sharper leading edge of the 919F vs the 900F for me is much better in terms of ball striking accuracy. 919F just cuts through anything I swing through and the added slot in the 4-7 irons is just insurance mentally for any type of mishits. I can’t say enough about the 919F. I kind of don’t want to hit the HMB’s as I love these so much.

    Love the 919F, but trying the HMB's in the next week or so anyway. May just end up with two sets...

    Just ordered a set, as my miss is toe side and these irons have alot of mass out on the toe. In true golfwrx fashion, I may pisk up a set of 919 HM's and play with both, then decide which I like better and sell the other set.
