Understanding this is very preliminary and not verified by me... but ran across this pic "on the web".... I am extremely interested in what a potential '23 version of the 921 series will look like - and what improvements will be touted over the prior version... this could be a sneak peek of what is to come?

If people would like to discuss what they hope to see or expect that Is fine.  But no pictures are to be published until product is officially announced by Mizuno

I was in my local shop today and the owner had some info on the design goals for 923 Hot Metals.  Question to mods:  can I share that info without pics?

The Mizuno rep told the owner of my local shop that Mizuno concentrated on raising the launch of the 923 Hot Metals and adding ball speed.  In fact, he said the first head they submitted to the USGA for testing failed the test because it was too hot.  I assume he was referring to the c.o.r. test.

Sounds promising.  I’ll get the full rundown on the lineup this week.  

A couple of notes. COR hasn’t been used for several years.  Drivers are now tested by the CT limit of .239  I believe, with a tolerance of 18 points actually allowing a CT of .257 (characteristic Time) as it is easier and less time consuming than COR testing.  Although most OEM will stay a bit below that .257 to avoid having a driver test above the limits  at an event   

Irons don’t come close to those limits so there is no official testing that I’m aware of.  As there is no real outcry on people hitting irons 400 yards and making courses obsolete 😬

The info was second hand so the info could have been misunderstood by the shop owner. I’m guessing the emphasis on launch angle is correct.

Loved (!) the looks of the the 921s, so I can only assume (given how absolutely perfect-looking the 221/223/225s were) that these will absolutely knock it out of the park.  I'd love to see them care less about a 28 degree 7-iron (I'd be thrilled with 30, to be honest) and more about the smallest dispersion pattern possible - but I also realize they need to "compete" distance-wise.  Sounds like, with that face being supposedly "too hot" (whatever that means, I'm okay with it, I guess), that's not going to be an issue.

Can't wait to see what they've got in store.

I'm hoping they have them available at the demo day I'm signed up for in October. Not that I'm really looking for new irons, but I have always been partial to Mizuno and Srixon.

Really waiting for the fall to test the 923 forged against the pro 225. Glad to see the 923 series is starting to get some love and also build hype as hopefully they near a future release date. I love how the mizuno site allows you to look at specs and compare sole size, head length, offset and top line. It really shows you the progression of size which I find really interesting when comparing future considerations

I heard second hand that that the HMs will be stronger lofted. Stronger lofted with appropriate launch angles would be awesome.

I believe you used hot metals at one point over the last year? Did you find that you had a harder time launching the ball as high as you wanted?

I can’t wait, odds are I’ll replace my irons with JPX923 Forged or HMPs this Fall (and T22s). I hit my JPX 900 Forged vs MP 225s a couple months ago, almost identical on a launch monitor so I didn’t buy. Almost no difference in distance, dispersion, launch angles, ball speed, etc. for me.

Anxious for this launch... I have been holding off on considering new irons for exactly this release (doesn't stop me from swinging several options at my local shop whenever I can ;)).  The 92x line is inspired and much imitated across many other manufacturers.  I have the 221's, and they are a blast to play... but they are blades, and for gaming I get better results more consistently with my T200's... I can't wait to compare and contrast against my current set, the WS D9's, and the TM Stealth... Will always own at least one set of Mizuno's - made that decision when I bought my first set of new TZoid Pros then moved into the MP-33's (which were my all time favorite irons but were unfortunately liberated from my trunk many years ago).  Gamed the MP-68's (still have them) for many years before trying the MP-20 HMB's... which didn't click with me for some reason - and settled on the "player's club look" of the Titleist T-200's after a Titleist Fitting Day at my club last year. 

Once released, I have a feeling I will land somewhere between the JPX923 and the JPX923 Tour, but will swing the Hot Metals as well (I think TM did a great job with feel on a cast club so I will be interested to see how Mizuno uses their skills to further enhance the feel of the Hot Metal line).  

Those are a lot of words to agree with @Middler above... I can't wait.

Damn, I knew it was eventually coming but I just traded in my ping g425 for JPX 921 HM… 1st round with them and broke 80… 

i can’t imagine how they can improve the 921 hot metal. They are simply point and shoot and so easy to hit high and straight.

I play Hot Metals currently and really like them. No trouble with launch, was just saying if they make the lofts stronger and essentially keep the launch characteristics, i would be happy.

So far I like the launch and the distance. I wouldn’t mind a bit more spin holding firm greens but I don’t know anyone who has that lol

Yep... that is the trend for GI's  the Stealth did a pretty darn good job an achieving that... I have to believe Mizuno will find a way to reposition the weighting to accomplish it too.  Stealth (for example) launch with Mizuno feel... Wow!
