Anyone hit them both??? Recently hit the srixon sand was really impressed! I think they look better than the previous 65 series. Havenít seen the 919s but reading comments they look nicer than the 900s!

Toss up here. Being hitting both. Both are very soft and look great. Found the 785s sounded a bit 'clicky' like Titleist, but softer.

to me it would be a lot to do with the turf interaction for the 785 vs Forged.

The Tour is certainly closer to a blade.

Flip a coin! HaHa! Seriously.  

Both companies are producing fantastic irons. It may come down to visual preference.

I hit them both during a fitting yesterday and they perform the same. Really comes down to looks, chrome vs darker finish.

Have not hit either yet so I will go on looks. I would consider the 785 and 919F to be comparable as srixon is coming out which will compare with the tour. The 785 looks better in the bag, more compact(thinner topline, less offset) than the 919F which is disappointing because I have and love the 900F but unfortunately my next set will be the 785.

785 I would say is in the xforged and ap2, V6 bracket.

A fairer comparison would be 585 to the 919f.  Huge Mizuno MP fan.  If you like to hit it shorter, be less forgiving, worst feeling but have a slightly thinner looking club than 919F is probably your best bet.  I think most people would benefit more from getting am MP in the short mid irons and throwing in some HM.  Those are the real deal.

Can't go wrong with either. Only thing I  will say is it might easier to blend 585/785. The gap in forgiveness between Tour and Forged seems bigger.
