Still healing from a knee replacement in January and lots of snow on the ground, so I haven't been able to hit balls yet.  Both of these irons our on my short list.

Can anyone offer any comparisons.

EZ Forged is bigger.  Not really in the same class.  Mizuno moved the size of the EZ Forged up compared to the 800 and 825 Pro series.  The older model are a better comparison with Ping i-series.  Personally, I like the size of the Mizuno's over the Ping's.  More forgiveness.

I realize they are maybe in different classes but I've found both to be interesting. I've been playing G-15's with ZZ-65's for the last three years and like them a lot. I won't get rid of the G-15's but just have the urge for something new this season to try. The G-15's won't be far away if I need them.

I got fitted for ez forged two months ago and I can tell u they are the best clubs I ever swung (I tested the i25 too). They are a little big but not distracting and very forgiving. 4iron is very easy to hit , most forgiving 4 iron I ever swung. I have gained about 5 to 7 yards on all the clubs and I have a higher ball flight as well. They sound a little different not so much a high pitch ping at contact , this is my first forged set so it could just be what forged irons sound like. And the pw is at 45* and is a little bulky. But when I tested the i25s I felt they were in a different class than the mizunos. If ur looking for max forgiveness go with the EZs , but if u strike the ball well and ur looking for maximizing your distance and shot shaping ability go with the i25s.

I can probably play either, my two previous sets of irons before the G-15s were Cally X-Protos and Mp-32's........I really liked both of them but I bought the G-15's on a whim and love them. I'm 60 years old now and while I'm still about a 6 handicap I am into making the game easy and enjoyable. My days of hitting it long are over, so any extra distance I can pickup is a bonus.

If you are 60, you better be "bringing it" with the ZZ65s.  Ever thought of reshafting them?  ZZ65s play on the stiff side of stiff.

I "really" like the ZZ-65's.............makes no sense because my swingspeed doesn't dictate needing them.  I really have no answer other than I have a fairly quick transition and have always fared better with shafts on the firm side. It always seemed as though I hit them more solidly. Distance has always been pretty good with them.

I'll notch back to something softer on the next set and see what happens.............but the Pings will be there if I need them.

Z-Z65 is exactly half way between CFS S and X in stiffness, and constitute a true stiff in my experience.  It's the CFS S that's soft that throws some people off.

I recently bought the EZ forged and can't say enough good things about them. I hit 8 sets including the i25,ap2,and apex which are getting a lot of love and while I do think all of the current offerings are pretty similar, I loved the EZ forged. I honestly believe that if they looked more "traditional" this forum would be gushing about them just like the apex and ap2.

Anyone tried both of these this summer? I am seriously considering a switch from the G25 which are just too big for my liking. I have hit both inside and like both, neither of these were fitted for me. So I am going to try to have a test session with both of these in the next couple of week.

Can't comment on ez forged BUT I did trade my Mizzt jpx 800's for i25's with stiff cfs and handicapped is down to 3.2 from 6.2 and shot 2 rounds under par. Had G5's and AP1s prior to that. LOVE the look, feel, distance control, turf reaction, and yet still very forgiving.
