Mizuno JPX 850 Forged are really forgiving and you can get them on the cheap now. The 900's will be most likely be discounted soon due to the imminent release of the next series.

Another vote for the Srixon 5 series, maybe consider the Wilson Staff M3 or F5 irons as well, very underrated
Driver = Titleist TS3, Even Flow White 6.0 (44.5")
5 Wood = Taylormade Burner

Irons = Miura 1957 Baby Blades Project X LZ 6.0 (4-PW)
Wilson Staff FG59 DG S300's (4-PW)
Titleist 718 MB Project X LZ 6.0 (4-PW)
Wedges = Titleist Vokey SM6 52*, 56* and 60*

Putter = Wilson Staff 8882
Ball = Titleist AVX

What is your definition of "forged"?

The new Ping i500 is labeled as forged, however the only thing forged about it is the face plate! LOL

I would suggest trying the forged PXG 0311 irons.

If you haven’t made a choice yet, definitely side with the Wilson Staff M3. I never put much stock in the “forgiving” iron, but I can attest, my usual miss is tThe Johnny Miller wipe, it actually feels like the clubface opens as it make s contact, and these irons are very resistant to doing that.

I like my Z565s, they're great for distance forgiveness, but not always for left and right. Toe strikes also go the right amount of distance as well.

but they're not "fully" forged and depends what you want from forgiveness.

Hogan Edges were designed as GI Forged Clubs. Cavity Backs with weight around the perimeter. A bit of a thick top line, though but they play really well. Had 2 sets over the years. Original Edges from the 80's, and a set of Ft. Worth Edges from a few years back.

it depends on what you consider forged and what you consider forgiving.  if you just want something stamped forged - sure.  p790.  i500.  adams a4 forged.  jpx ez forged is probably the most "forgiving" as i dont really think jpx 850 f is that forgiving.  they are pretty thin, and you have to hit the center.  ap2 is a great club, but also not very forgiving imho.
