Got them in hand for a quick look see,

The blade is nice. Clean as blades usually are. not much you can do with the design but they always look good

the 223 is certainly an upgrade in appearance compared to the MP20 MMC. I like the new cavity appearance and the fact they are not afraid to say they now have a GW.

The 225 although looks familiar, is a short blade length for a more compact head specifically at the lower end. My opinion would be the design was changed to flow though combo sets easier and give the over all set a higher level players look.

The wedges will be an upgrade to the last model too with the addition of the copper head. Unfortunately LEFTIES are not part of that plan. However the 223 is. So there's that.

After the T-100s didn't knock me out (don't get me wrong they are still at the top of my list just not quite an "autobuy") and Ping came in too pricey with the i59s (and no i525 combo option yet), I am going to wait to check out these 223s and 225s before buying my next set. They look awesome and I like the fact that they seem to blend better than T100/T200.

They look a great product, but I just can't like the font they've changed to for Mizuno Pro. Has 0 effect on performance.

 

I've tried searching for an article about it. Is it a heritage font or something like that?

 

Edit: Just found out. It's the logo that has been used on the Japanese lines of irons previously. This release is going to be unified world wide with that logo. Still dislike the font.

I am going to say yes.  

From what the early reviewers are saying, they are implementing some of the JPX technology into the MP line.  This is where they got me listening...thinking MP head size and shape with the COR of a JPX line...

Just think, maybe 4-6 in 223, and 7-pw  in the 221 blades. Probably very similar to the Ptx-pro combo.

Sight unseen, I may go 225 in the 4-6 and 223 in the 7-P.  

Mizuno's definitely been gearing up towards a blend / combo option since the 18's.  I can't wait to swing these.

I haven't ever really hit their hollow clubs. I guess I need to take a trip to Dunn rogers and check em out. I wonder if the new hollow clubs are better that the first edition. Seems they test well in here in the most wanted slot.

I wonder if the blades aren't a good part of a combo set due to lack of distance compared to the multi compound/ hollow clubs...

Ive had a lot of Mizzy blades over the years and always loved them, but I wonder what a full set of hollow clubs would do for me... On recoils, they would probably be so soft it would be hard to tell if I even hit the ball haha

I still love my Hogans so much that I rarely contemplate other clubs... but if I did... Mizzy would be where I go

The HMB MP 20 in my bag is solid. It’s not the best long iron sub that I’ve hit but it’s still in my bag for a reason. It’s also very low-launch which still surprises me. 
 

I’ll have to see a noticeable difference to boot my Hogans as well.

I've been gaming Mizuno's for a long time and after playing other brands for years.  And I can say that they are the best irons in the business.  It looks like I'll be getting these irons as soon they are available.

I think the 223 is going to be at the top of my list to try when I get fit. February cannot get here soon enough.

I haven't played a set of Mizuno Irons since the JPX 825 Pro and I hated them, but as my Forum name indicates I love Mizuno 🙂 . I will be seriously considering a combo set of 225 and 223.... The older I get the more help I need so this may be the next evolution for me.  I wonder if Modus 115 Iron shafts are now available in North America as standard and what profile they are compared to Modus 120.... I guess I better start researching.

Yep, I agree on the 223, I had pretty much heard back in Janurary form their R&D dept that a big change was coming to what would be the MMC and that it was expected to be a huge hit.   I"m a fan.

I saw them a couple weeks ago, didn't get to hit them, but ordered a set of 223 on the spot.   

Yes, of course that was before my post from a bit ago in the SUV buying thread...ha  So I'm saying that doesnt' count.  I'll most likely sell the P790's to offset them.
