With everyone in GolfWRX looking for "looks, feel, sound, forgiveness, and accuracy" in no certain order, what are some of your favorite Game Improvement irons?  What are some classic irons that should not be ignored for just being "old"?  Any that have been forgiving and consistent for you?

Let's try to avoid discussions about lessons, blades, cast, forged, jacked lofts, or "my manufacturer is better than your manufacturer" comments.   Please post and include the following with friendly debating:

Favorite GI iron model:
Favorite GI iron of past:
Honorable mentions that are of interest:

Here are mine...

Favorite GI iron of past: Ping Eye 2 (Classic game improvement, forgiveness)
