I've gamed the OnOff Forged 2013 and the Grindworks DP. I would take the OnOff over the Grindworks for my game. Slightly smaller head and less offset. The feel is the best I've ever had from a golf club. I will probably buy another set........

Driver: Callaway GBB 9* + Rogue Max 65x.
FW: Callaway GBB 16* + Rogue Max 75x

Irons: Taylormade P730/P770 + KBS $-Taper HS1x.
Wedges: Taylormade Milled Grind 52/56/60 + KBS Hi-Rev 2.0.
Putter: Rife Barbados island.

I have Onoff Kuros that I purchased from Tzoid (believe they 2015, but Ty can correct me if they are '13s).  I'm prolly going to pull the shafts and let the heads go if anyone is interested.  Love the feel but actually too much offset for me and my miss left ��

They are older and maybe harder to find to be able to build,but Toustsage TS202 irons were the best for me in this category. There might be sets floating around with ns pro 950 shafts as it was a popular pairing back in the day.

If you don't mind a little offset and a bit older look, these checked many boxes for feel and performance.

Another vote for the OnOffs, played both the 2013 and 2015 versions. Actually sold the '15s first and gamed 2013s longer. Played both those and, ironically given above post, the TS 202s with Nippon 950s in R flex. Great combos - and the. 2013 OnOffs can be found at pretty attractive price points.

On the hunt for some new irons...had a fitting at golftec and we tried a variety of shaft and head combinations. I think I have nailed down the Nippon gh950 regular  as my next shaft. I Had the strongest performance with the jpx hotmetal head, though I had hoped a forged jpx model would be the right fit. I may end up going for the hotmetal head as it felt good...not like true forged irons do, but the numbers were good for my profile.

Before I commit to purchasing or building a new set I thought I would try to fully exhaust my non-Mizuno options. I wondered if anyone had experience with a game improvement iron which was forged yet forgiving. JDM irons are generally beautiful so I'm seeking suggestions from this genre.

Thanks

Mark

We recommend the Miura MG CB-2008 if you're looking for forged and forgiveness. If you have a slower swing speed, and need a lighter club head then the XXIO forged irons are really good.

For what it's worth...the Miura PP-9003 are a fantastic option for anyone looking for a one piece forged GI'ish style club.  The heads are midsize; guys that want small players clubs need not apply.   It's the size that provides the forgiveness though.  Feel is firm but wonderful.  Some bounce so not overly diggy despite a medium thin sole.  There are two models: straight neck (low offset) and the standard, which don't have all that much offset to begin with.  I'd rate these clubs in the same basic category as the Mizuno MX23/25.  Good stuff.

Another vote goes to the Onoff Forged. Gamed the 2011 version for a couple of years and would still be gaming it if it wasn't for boredom. Very soft feel.

mph5 are solid too. They are a forged hollow head design. the longer irons 2-6 or 7 aren't forged but still feel great.
