Just like the title says.  The 900 line is getting tons of buzz right now, but The JPX 850 Forged is widely available at a cheaper price point right now, so curious...from the Mizzy experts, is the JPX 900 worth the nearly twice the price as the JPX 850?

Just looking to maximize performance with dollars spent.  Appreciate any opinions or insights.

It really depends.  I played the 850 forged and now play the 900 forged.  I really did (still do) like the 850 forged.  Where the 900 forged are better is they have a softer feel closer to many Mizuno MP irons and the short irons (7-PW) are not as long heel to toe as the 850 forged.  I would say those are the two biggest issues, at least for me.  If a longer blade length and firmer feel doesn't bother you, go with the 850 forged.

Less offset in the 900F was why I switched.
