Did you need to bend lofts to make the combo work?

Yes. Tweaked the 6 weak and the 7 strong. Each by a degree. Works perfect for me.

Fortunately, I am on my 3 off so I won't go back into work until Wednesday.  

Unfortunately, I am rebuilding my fence thanks to a windstorm this weekend so I won't be able to get out until Friday or Monday...

Well, a fence can wait…

I see you got the new clubs Into the signature already… I suppose I’ll have to wait a few more days anyways…

4) Now that I have my bag all set, what in the world am I supposed to do @Golfspy_CG2 Am I now supposed to keep these clubs and not buy more??
 

 

You bag is never set; you must continue the pursuit to find better clubs.  One day as age catches up to you or technology changes you will find something better.

Looks like Big Oak range!  I got my first set there as a lad. 

Good eye!

I worked there 3 summers from 2001-2003 and loved it.  5-6 days a week from noon - 10.  Close the shop and then hit balls after work until 11ish.  I loved that job.

Oh I completely agree.  I’ve subscribed to the 3-4 year rule for my driver, I’d love to keep these irons for the same cycle and wedges are probably 2 years max.  

 

Putters…well, so far one year and I’m still amazed it’s stuck around that long…

Picked up a set of 223 (4-7) and 221 (8-pw) wow these feel great. The right shaft for me was the DG 120’s x100. So pure. My dispersion is low, scary low. The feel is unreal.

 

when I picked them up, lofts and lies were WAY OFF. (3° flat when i ordered 1° upright.

I had a sheet ready of all the lies, and what they should have been, to what I wanted. Before I even hit them, I had the shop adjust them. 
 

Absolutely love them

After several days of rigorous testing, and fitting, trying out several shafts, heads, and combinations thereof. We used the Mizuno swing analyzer that did a pretty good job on some starting recommendations to start with. Then used a GC Quad to dial in the numbers to my best fit. My last irons were Mp20 -mmc so I assumed I'd probably go for the 223's this year. But the numbers don't lie and I got the best dispersion, with the 225's overall. After I was finally dialed in, I ordered a set of 225's and T-22 copper wedges back in January. We called to make sure they could make them to my desired swing weights of D2 in the irons and D4 in the wedges. Having large hands I use CP2 wrap jumbo grips that weigh 80 grams. The clubs are plus 1" with Recoil ESX shafts in the irons, and KBS High rev 2.0 in the wedges. Mizuno said they would have no problem building them to my specs as the had several heads that were on the heavy side, and achieving my desired swing weights would be no problem. I reminded them that they missed the swing weight on my MP20-MMC's last year, and if they needed to charge more to swing weight them I'd pay, but I wanted them right this time, not half assed.

About 3 weeks ago they came in. The irons were at C6-C7, and the wedges at D1-D1.5. These clubs were never checked, 5 lofts and 5 lies were off as well. For a company that prides itself on quality, this is un-acceptable. Mizuno offered to rebuild the set, but honestly my confidence was not big on them getting them right, or on it not taking several months to turn them around only to possibly get them back wrong again.

I then contacted Jim @McGolf custom (http://www.mcgolf.net/) about rebuilding my clubs. He said he could do them so I sent them to Ohio to be disassembled, swing weighted, and spined. Jim was a complete professional, offering up some great advice on the specs, and the process. And then completing the quality work quickly even though this is a busy time for skilled clubmakers. If I had to do this over again, I would have just ordered a set of heads and had @McGolf do the rest. Mizuno builds some great heads, but their assembly and quality control is not very good right now. I have ordered custom specs from Ping and they always sent my order thru the Works department, they were spot on upon arrival. Thankfully I got a guy who takes pride in his work to fix these for me. Hitting bombs and throwing darts now, these are the best irons I have ever owned. Just need to oil up these old bones and I'm good for another season.

Truer words were never spoken. My new set of p770’s are being mounted on red Ventus Regular flex shafts. Two years ago I wouldn’t even have considered regular flex. Now I’m dying for them to get finished.

but with that said, I’m sure hoping TM does a better job building them, than what the Mizuno crew is doing… whats going on over there?!?!

Shot down to PGASS because I really wanted to give the 221/225's a try with the DG 120 x100 shaft.

In a word Butter.

They are both fantastic. Leaning the 221 realm right now but who knows. They both felt absolutely fantastic.

Numbers for both were pretty consistent and fell between the below. I am not a number cruncher but I think they are good. Feel alone either one I am going to love.

I read yesterday that Mizuno is telling customers to expect a 90 day turnaround so you may want to jump on this sooner than later…
