Mizuno: Anyone switch from JPX 921 Tour to 921 Forged or vice versa?

I’ve played and was fitted for all 3.  The tours, forged and the mmc’s.   Tours felt fine and looked the best but were also the least forgiving on toe side contact, which is my miss.  Forged felt great and we’re definitely forgiving but I struggled to control the ball flight and wasnt a huge fan of how they felt.  MMC’s we’re the ticket… felt amazing and were pretty forgiving.   I’d suggest you go hit all three and see what you prefer.  The forged heads definitely have some forgiveness built in that the tours do not.

I like the look of the new 223, i feel like it's a legitimate half way between a tour cavity and game improvement. Are you still playing the 919 tours?

Nope I’m not in the tours anymore, played them for a year.  Currently in the MP20 MMC’s.

I'm currently playing 900 forged and I'm thinking its time to upgrade, I could use a little help in off center hits but I hit them pretty good

Are the MP20 MMC's in the same ballpark as far as forgiveness? 

 

I also like the look of the 223's....I can't wait to see these

Not enough forgiveness on the 900 forged? I can't imagine there is much difference between them and the 921

plenty of forgiveness.

I was just wondering on the comparison with the MP20 MMC

I found the MMC’s as forgiving as the 921 Forged’s.  MMC’s just felt softer to me on pure strikes

did you play better with the mmc vs the tour?

Minimally.  My handicap improved after I switched but by a negligible amount.

Currently playing the tours but interested in the forged for forgiveness, I would love to hear your thoughts

I opted to get a combo set of 4-6 in the Forged and 7-PW in the Tours and have had no regrets!  Mizuno adjusted the lofts so there was a consistent 4* difference through the set.
