It was interesting you mention that. I went through and looked at the countless amount of iron sets I’ve played (yes I know I have a problem....but more on that later). I looked st countless sets from the ones I could find (some I just couldn’t find the bounce specs for) they were all different. I get turf interaction, but i don’t think it’ll be noticeable when it comes to bounce. I got bored and also looked up some of the ones I demoed and some of those were a difference of 3 degrees, but while demoing I couldn’t tell.

Were you hitting off a mat ?  That can mask the differences.  Once you get it on a course, especially a wet one, the differences will become apparent.

I know I'm not the only one that needed a moment after gazing at Tony's article about Mizuno's new lineup.    At first I was like:   And then I saw the JPX919 Forged were available for lefties a

I was. That’s interesting though. I’ll have to pay more attention to this once I get back out on the course. Initially I didn’t notice any difference. But my swing was a little wacky and I’ve now not swung a club in almost a month....

I don’t live near a golf shop but finally got to hit the forged and they are incredible. I wonder how a forged long iron/ MP20 MMC combo would gap? 

I'd hit the MP20 MMC before deciding. The forged offer incredible feel and forgiveness. I haven't hit the MP20s but I can't say enough good things about the forged. I don't have the option to play the 919 Tours or MP20 MMCs simply because I'm a lefty, but the forged, even in the short irons, are fantastic.

Any steep swingers gaming the Forged/Tours have any issues with the irons digging in the turf at impact?
 
[mention=56939]jlukes[/mention] can you tell much of a difference from the V Sole Srixon to the low bounce Mizzys? 


They definitely dig more then a game improvement set. I got my 919F’s about a month ago and like you, I steepen on the downswing. My fat shots are definitely less forgiving with a significant distance loss than my old gi set.

I did a full fitting at Club Champion. My old set was 11 years old and needed to go. I actually hit the Hot Metal a bit better but the feel on the Forged irons was off the chain. Wow! I had never played a forged iron and just during the fitting process I was impressed with the soft feel and the Trackman stats. I ended up purchasing the Forged, gw- 5 and went with the Hot Metal 4I, which I absolutely hammer.

I’ve played 18 with them once and put in lots of range time and I Love these irons! First, they look amazing. The word I use when I talk or think about them is that they are “a work of art”. A nice clean look from up top and a nice bright finish. These are definitely a players club. Some forgiveness on the face, which is nice, but not much forgiveness from the sole on fat contact.
