Which is more forgiving?

Thanks.

(I noticed Kevin Chappell playing the 1008's in the longer irons -- and MC 501's in the short irons -- which makes me think the 1008's are pretty darned forgiving...at least a lower COG to get the ball up.

I hit the CB 1008's a fitting and they are ridiculously good! Better ball speed than taylormade p790 and very forgiving. Haven't hit the 501s but they look amazing too.

I would say the 1008's due to their larger overall size. Great combo set (1008 & MC501s)

Yep, just by design I would think 1008 easier to hit...
