Wow, that's awesome!

and the collection keeps getting bigger. If you wanted to have them built to my specs, I wouldn't be offended. Just sayin'. 😉

Yeah right, I'd take Robs cast offs!

 He said that the forged model is their best combination of pure looks and technology and to date this is their best attempt at that.

 

which still sounds like the other clubs they have are not as good...in his view.

I’m going to get fit in the next couple weeks for new irons. Been swinging MP-53’s for 9 full seasons.  Curious if anyone has opinions on the new lines?  I’m LH so unfortunately they didn’t extend the 919 Tour line to us lefties so I’d have to look at the Forged.  I’m a 5.7 handicap 105-106 Driver swing speed if that helps anyone with intimate knowledge of these irons share their opinion specific to me. Thanks in advance. 

The Mizuno MP-53 is an excellent iron.

Are the nine seasons of play your only reason for replacing them?

Mostly yes. I also took som damage on my 7 and 4 iron this year hitting rocks under the soil. 😭

Well the "collection" is going through more a thinning out and replacing, more than an adding onto...ha

I went by a golf shop to hit the MP-18 MMC irons. I had researched them and was positive these were going to be my new irons. I hit them, and nothing. Just a dead feeling. They had just got the new 919 heads in the day before. I hit the forged it was ok. Nothing spectacular. I hit the tour, and was blown away! The JPX 919 Tour irons are the best Mizuno has right now!
