The Mizuno JPX919 Forged differs from the JPX919 Tour iron mainly in the manufacturing process and the material used. Much more technology is used to design this iron and even though the irons look very similar at first glance, they differ significantly.
The Mizuno JPX919 Forged uses the same soft carbon steel as all other Mizuno irons, but with added boron. This is called "1025 Boron Infused" and has much harder properties. This ensures that the JPX919 Forged is the one Mizuno iron with the highest ball speeds. This is not only due to the harder steel, but also to the face that is milled from the back of the blade. This makes it particularly thin.
Nevertheless it is an iron with which you can do a lot of things. The "playability" is quite given and it would be wrong to recommend this iron only to players who are interested in an increased launch and maximum ball speeds. Similar to the JPX919 Tour, the weight in the head is distributed around the outer edges of the clubhead, but left out around the heel, which would be counterproductive. This also makes hits outside the sweet spot - both vertical and horizontal - less dramatic.
You can configure the JPX919 Forged to your own needs. You can choose from high-quality steel shafts from major manufacturers such as Nippon, Project X, KBS and Dynamic Gold.

Mizuno not only manufactures golf clubs but also manages to provide excellent products in exactly this segment. One of the main reasons for this is that Mizuno always aims to offer the best possible quality. And they already have several decades of experience with golf clubs. They were one of the first to optimize the production process of forged irons. Over the years Mizuno has developed the so-called Grain Flow Technology. This process makes the steel that is forged much purer. This way Mizuno does not have to forge at such high pressure as Miura. Mizuno has thus established an industrial process that meets high quality standards and still allows the production of large quantities.
The iron heads are all manufactured in Hiroshima, Japan and then shipped to Scotland. There, each set of irons is individually assembled - exactly according to the customer's requirements. This is why Mizuno is a perfect fit for ExactGolf - because we have also made it our business to be able to serve all individual configurations. Mizuno has all club heads, shafts and grips in stock. There is no extra charge for special shafts or grips. However, there is a kind of "standard configuration" for each set of irons which is already built in advance and in larger quantities. These are correspondingly cheaper and available for immediate delivery.
If the irons are ordered individually, they are assembled exactly according to the customer's wishes. This means in exactly the required shaft and in the desired length. With selected grip, lie and loft. Here there are basically no restrictions except for particularly long or short shafts. A club that is to be longer or shorter than 1/2 inch requires a special manufacturing process in that the swing weight must be adjusted. Mizuno does this but can only handle lengths of - or + 1/2 inch. A club with e.g. +1 inch would need to be drilled out to fit the swing weight. We do this for example with our Miura irons. Unfortunately this is not possible with Mizuno. Apart from that Mizuno really satisfies all wishes and that very efficiently and quickly. Within 14 days the set of irons is built and ready for shipping.
