For those of you who had the chance to try the 223 6- and 7-irons, did you notice a distinctive difference in feel and maybe ball flight due to the different materials and construction? Thanks.

I only hit the 7 iron. I wouldn’t imagine they would feel different since they are constructed the same. You mean 7 vs. 8? 8-GW is where they don’t use chromoly, remove the micro slot inserts, and construct the same as 221s.
 

For what it’s worth, the TXG guys made a comment in their 223 review when hitting the 223 PW that it definitely felt different and almost like an iron from a different set rather than the same or progression of the set.

Sorry, I meant 7- vs 8-iron, it was quite early when I typed my question…

 

Thanks a lot!

Well, it is different. Chromoly versus 1025E and no micro slot in the 8-PW. They did the same in the MP20 HMB. Mizuno's take is you want more consistency in those irons rather than a "hot" face. You may need to tweak the lofts a degree stronger in 8-PW based on what you find. That's what I plan on doing.

That looks like a great idea. I noticed after the 8 iron, the lofts get dramatically weaker compared to other irons in same category (e.g. T100S) by about 5 degrees instead of 4 degrees, with set GW finishing at 51 degrees instead of 48. To me on paper, that looks like quite a gap. Wonder why Mizuno took this approach with the short irons?

I’m bending the longer irons weaker to remove offset (and add bounce) rather than adding offset (and reducing bounce) in the short irons.

Same. Ordered my 5-8 (223s) a degree weak. Though I’m wondering if I should’ve just matched the 5-9i lofts to the 221s. Will likely need a gapping session after delivery.

I don't know but if I'd kept my HMB's longer, I'd be strengthening the short irons. Instead, I'm getting MP-22 in a couple of weeks. I will adjust as needed.

Does anyone know if the Fli-Hi is specced in different lengths, between the graphite and the steel shaft options?

 

I seem to remember a video where somebody at Mizuno said the graphite shaft spec was longer than the steel shaft spec.

 

Mizuno site just lists them as these lengths:

2 iron: 39.75 inch long

3 iron: 39.25 inch long

4 iron: 38.75 inch long

 

Can anyone confirm these are standard lengths in both graphite and steel options?

 

I'm looking at the 19 degree 3 iron in HZRDUS black shaft.

I remember seeing on some store website that the steel shaft options are 1/4 inch shorter. the ones you have listed being the graphite length

Any of you have any hesitancy to putting a full set of 221s in your bag? I finally got to hit all 3 sets and just loved the feel of the 221s. This would also be my first set of blades, so just wasn’t sure what the norm is with other regular golfers. 

Think it depends on how thorough the testing was, in my experience hitting a bladed 7 iron off a mat or driving range tee is typically quite easy.  Put me in the rough or uneven lie with a bladed long iron and its a whole different ballgame.  Even most professionals have help in their longer irons.
