They'll try and get it to D1 - D2 which is considered "best" by Mizuno.

They have lighter heads for longer lengths to make this possible

If you demod a standard weight head (the one with white writing - the one with yellow writing is the lightre head) with a 1/2 inch over shaft your swing weight was probably over D2. More like D4-5 (3 points are added from standard D1-2 for the 1/2 inch length).
If you requested D2, yours will be D2.

Hopefully they are aware of preference on the order.
I demoed the MP59 standard 6 iron and it felt great. But when I bought a 6 iron demo 1/2 over it has the lighter head and I measured it at C9. Not good for me at all.
When I order I will be stating D4 so they should have the heavy head (A)

I want to order some jpx 825's (not pro) and I want them +3/4" length.  The fitter told me that mizuno would account for this with a lighter head and the swing weight would now be at D3...can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Most likely! Mizuno produce two different head weights for each of their clubs.  The standard weight club will do standard and shorter length clubs, whereas their lighter head will do longer clubs.

The info you were given seems correct to me.

This also sounds correct to me.  Mizuno standard swing weight is D0-2 and that can be achieved with the standard weight head for standard length and the lighter head for longer lengths.  So for 1/2 inch over, the swing weight should still be D0-2.  There are 3 weight points for each half inch so an extra 1.5 points for your extra 1/4 inch to get to 3/4 would suggest you would be around D1.5-D3.5.

Mizuno also add shaft tip weights, up to 5 gms, which is approx. 2.5 swingweights. So with the 2 head weights, up to 5 gms of tip weights, different shaft weights and balance points and different grip weights they can custom fit most combinations to their standard swingweight of D1-D3 (4 to 9 iron).

But they do take the shaft weight and its distribution into account as well, right?
In my case, I wonder what they would do with my likely order of MP-64s and MP-H4 long iirons with KBS Tour regular shafts (110gr, and more weight on the butt end than the typical TT shafts) at 1/2" longer.
Still use the lighter heads, because it is +1/2"?
Or go ahead with the normal heads, as the shaft has a lighter weight and a different weight distribution to begin with?
