Any of the forged cavity backed models that are currently available? Really, an 8 not being able to justify using blades? That's a pretty big assumption. The last 2 seasons, I was using Titleist 755s, which are forged cavity back GI irons. I ended the season around 15 index. This season I am playing 695MBs and my index has dropped to 8.4 What caliber of player do you think you need to be to use a muscle backed/blade iron? Try one, you might be pleasantly surprised!

A vote for the Adams A4 Forged here.
Adams CB2's as well, although they were a little less forgiving.

Try a set of ez1they're bigger heads with a medium topline minimal offset and that sweet forged feel but still in the gi category if you ask me i'm a 10, i've played blades and while I can hit them when everything is right they're just too punishing for me on miss his the ez1s have dropped strokes off my scores if only the putter would cooperate!

Good luck in your hunt try to hit a few options before choosing that's half the fun of new irons

Mizuno has a lot of good options. Probably like 6-7 not too old models that you can get for a song these days, although I cant think of all the names right now..(mx-200, mx-300, jpx800 pro, MX23...)

Having said that, I dont really buy into the hype of a forged iron's "feel". Maybe I dont have the magical touch that everybody else does, but I just cant really tell the difference. I have a set of Mizunos and a set of Pings, and they both feel pretty good.

As other have said

Mizuno MX 20, 23, 25 & 300 JPX 800 pro then the MP53 for least forgiving but still helpful. I play them

Adams CB3, CB3 and A12 pro

If you can find a fitter try Wishon 560. A great forgiving forged cavity back. A friend has them and I have hit them they are everything and more.

Awaiting my set of VRs Forged to arrive end of this month-beginning of next (you know how that goes though). Can't wait to hit 'em with the PXi 6.5's topped off with the multi-compound red/black. However, now that I stopped by GS this morning and hit the AMP Forged that just came through there warehouse doors while I was there....(yes, my fitter was there and I did ask first...lol as he taped up the 6 and eagerly awaited for me to hit them). The AMP has a much smaller top line and cleaner look as you go up in the irons (can't see the forgiveness factor as much or at all on the 4 iron as with the VRs). Was also surprised that the stock shaft was a KBS S+ will make a lot of people with higher SS happy with possibly not having to special order. But then again, could put a lot of people off that have a slower SS if it is not brought to their attention. Over all impressed with the AMP offering, and as I said in another thread: if they screw up my order from NIKE (strong possibility with having to call a few times), the AMP's will get a second look. I will have to refrain from hitting them again until then :)

To each his/her own, but these two I like.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
