I'd like to a split set with these. 223 in 4-7, 8-pw in the 221.

I wonder what the feel is going to be like.

Well, the majority of you are far more the target audience than I am, but I will undoubtedly test them out. I couldn't even consistently handle the JPX 919 Forged and those probably still have more tech than do the Mizuno Pro line. But I really like their look so I'll go into them with great optimism and high hopes!

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. 

I don’t see a reason to not like this.  I may be impulsive, we’ll see what the spring looks like 😊

Wow... I shouldn't be surprised when Mizzy irons look good, but they have that certain Je ne sais quoi quality.

I'll have to live vicariously through @Lacassem if he checks them out... from a pure performance stand point my Forged Tecs have almost perfect gapping according to Arccos and I really shouldn't start to mess with that right now.... famous last words I know.  🤣

I really like the looks of these. I was hoping to get a new iron fit late summer 2022 and will have to add these to the list.

FWIW.  There is a guy on WRX who has them and has been playing them for a week  or two.  Someone asked about them compared to the JPX Tour.  He said they are much more forgiving than the Tours.  So that’s cool to hear.

They look tremendous and looking forward to testing against my MP 20's.  I've been told they feel more solid but unsure how to take that.   Numbers don't lie.   Would definitely combo the 223 6 & 7 and then 221 8-PW.  HMB in a 5 iron but I'm still searching for that perfect feeling, flying easy to hit off the deck 5 iron so who knows.   I'll play around with that and look at the numbers.  The T22 wedges are drool material and ditching Vokey for good.  I think Club Champion gets these in hand to test and perhaps order through fitting on 12/6 which isn't far away now.   I absolutley love this.....

TXG review was pretty good. I’m definitely impressed with this design. I’ve said it before, the JPX and MP “best of” mashup sounds like an absolute winner. 
 

Now it’s just time to hit them and see how it goes. 
 

I would love to see a deeper dive on the PW feel they mention.  I do love that this isn’t just an echo chamber of adulation; they do see things they’re not completely sold on.  

If it were today I would go 4-P in straight 223…

The 223 or 225 for me. I don’t need ANY more distance from my irons, but the 225 and my Tour P irons should be a good match. The thing for me would be finding a good enough fitter that could take a look at the spin needs in my mid irons. So hard watching Ian do his thing and know I’ll be hard pressed to find someone that could really make the deep-dive to get me in the best situation.

Agreed. I was surprised to hear how highly they regarded the 225. It was not what I’d expected to hear. Changes the game a little.

... Pretty interesting how current Players long irons are as good or better than the hollow headed more forgiving "utility" type irons. I have a 4 UDi TP I play when using my Srixon Z Forged irons and tried to put it in my bag with my Cobra Tour irons but I just hit the Cobra 4i better than the TP 4i and also have more confidence with it.  In fact my Cobra 4i is one of my favorite clubs in the bag. 

... As an aside I picked up a SIM2 4 hybrid that basically replaces my 5 wood and added a SIM2 16.5* HL instead of the 15* model. I have found myself on several occasions approaching a 2nd shot on a par 5 where the high launching 5 wood is too short and the 3 wood too long and hope the 16.5* HL solves that problem with the best of both worlds. Gonna experiment with different wood combinations once the fairways firm up for the winter because the roll can be a good 40-50 yds longer than the summer. 50 extra yds sounds great right? And it is when you keep it in the fairway or edge of the rough but the dormant Bermuda is really fast in winter and the last thing I need is 50 more yards of roll when the ball is headed toward the desert. Like everything in this crazy game, there are always trade offs. 🤪
