    Let's spark up some debate and conversation.

    What are the most forgiving irons ever? Hybrids don't count, gotta be an iron set only.

    I'll go first...I never owned a set, but wish I had, I'll say the original Big Bertha irons were the most forgiving iron I have ever hit.

    Hmmmm.... Many folks do not consider them most forgiving, but the damn Ping Eye2s just seem to work for me.

    I'd go for the Ping G10s. Ugly AF, thick but forgiving nevertheless

    I tend to agree with FWS. My first ace came from a set of '95 Big Bertha irons. I owned both the '95 and the '97 series of them. The Great Big Bertha irons and the Tommy Armour T100 irons were hugemongous. I've actually been looking at a set of the newest Big Bertha irons at the local golf shop.

    The Karsten series from Ping were large and forgiving. But, I'd have to say Callaway has had the driver's seat in production of Super Game Improvement irons.

    All PING G series irons up through the G20, the 2014 Karstens, and the new G Max. Wide soles, lots of offset and long from heel to toe. I have owned many sets as well as the Callaway Berthas and the PINGs win out in the forgiveness category for me. Any Adams SGI set as well, however they have less offset.

    Just picked up the boy a set of the 2004 Big Bertha irons. He seems stoked, should be very forgiving for him!

    You can't go wrong with these or the 2002 BB irons. Both are extremely forgiving and hit the ball a mile. Great pickup!

    I have the Ping Eye 2 's and they are very forgiving. I can't really give quantitative data supporting that, but I seem to always play better with them.

    I've played a number of different Ping models and all were forgiving, even the "players" S59 and S55 models. That being said I have NEVER in my life had a more forgiving, long hitting iron set like the Titleist AP1's I'm playing now. I've never hit irons this good in my life. My 2 cents.
