I find that a lot of satin chrome irons can look really off in store lighting, especially if still in the plastic. The overhead lights do weird things to the lines for me.  I haven't seen the 921 forged in person yet, but usually try to get a look at a beaten up demo head at address vs. the shiny new and still in plastic ones on the rack, to get a gauge on what it's going to look like outside. 

 

I was thinking the plastic and lighting was playing tricks with me.

1025e in the short irons is kind of what I would want, since we probably don't need hotter faces in the short irons. Kind of a combo set without combo-ing. I thought I liked the idea of combo-ing irons, but I had a split set of MP-20's of Blade, MMC and HMB and actually found I would rather have just gone with a full set in the MMC's. Just the different lines and transitions I didn't like for my set, personally. Current trajectory has me ordering 5-pw 921 Forged 1* weak. Just waiting to see them in person and side by side with some of the new Taylormades.

Based on looks alone, I'm liking a 5-6 HMP and 7-GW Forged.  I don't hit my long irons particularly well, and the slightly beefier HMP 5 and 6 look like they would be easier to hit.

They're not really announcing it anywhere.  It seems like they are keeping it a secret for some reason.  I just saw the entire set and it's stamped on the hosel.

 

If you look at the pics of the 9 iron here you'll see the stamping.  https://www.thehackersparadise.com/mizuno-releasing-jpx-921-irons-full-preview/

 

Interesting.   Thanks for sharing, as to your point that is one well kept secret.

Pretty much what I ordered. I play the MP 18MMC now.

I hit the HMP and really didn’t like them.

Saw everything today.  Forged and Tour both look great. HMP went a little backwards in the looks dept IMO and the HM looked like what I expected.  I ordered 4-GW stock from a connection at the airport and they should be here Saturday or Monday.  ?

As a guy gaming the 919 HMP I’m curious as to your 921 HMP comment.  Can you be a bit more specific? I’m thinking of switching but haven’t had a chance to see them yet.

Had my fitting today. Thought I would be split between the HMP and forged but I ended up hitting the HMP much better. I think I’m going to do a 5 and 6 iron in the regular hot metal, then 7-PW in HMP, with the forged GW. Forged GW looks much better than the hm/HMP gap wedge. I may even consider doing the PW forged as well. I’m not sure if that’s going to far by having 3 different models....???

Where are you seeing that?  I haven't seen or heard anything about the range being mixed.  


It’s out there in some of the better

more in-depth print reviews and YouTube videos and podcasts.  But you have to look. 
 

the story seems to be the Chromoly being easy to cast but difficult to forge with.  As it’s been solved how to do, they forged the chromoly for this iteration. 
 

the compelling thing about the 921f is seemingly a one piece forging that performs like a hollow body distance iron.

The long irons just look funky with the cavity/back at address. More offset too.

FYI, I made a change to my order yesterday and my pro called our rep to do so. I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to lose my place in line. Its looking like the beginning of October for me but the rep said something interesting as the pro had him on speaker phone. He said they are working as fast as they can at their facility. They have over 20,000 custom orders right now. Now this includes all clubs meaning drivers, hybrids, wedges MP20 and JPX but that is an amazing number when you think about the size of Mizuno.

Makes you wonder if the shafts a person orders makes a difference in when they get their irons.  You ordered very early!

The black LZ is the stock selection on the HMP, would assume a hefty stock of them.

Delays happened last year with the MP20 preorder/release and they only had something like 10,000 custom orders back-logged then. I would expect delays of up to a couple of weeks for some of you and just be pleasantly surprised if you get them a bit earlier.

I would trust a brand ambassador/staff member timelines vs. any retailer

anyone have pics of the long irons of the HMP at address? All ive been able to see if the fitting 7 iron and they looked good, but I dont like to se the back of the club in the long irons.

 

I don’t have photos, but I saw them yesterday in person and you start to see the back end of the HMP from address at the 6 iron.

 

To my eye, the size difference between the Forged and the HMP was pretty significant.  Of course I’m in search of something in between those two sizes.
