Interested to know if anyone makes a cavity back iron or a more forgiving iron that has a .355 hosel?

The .355" hosel is the taper tip. The taper tip shafts tend to be uniform weight, and come in a kit with all the shafts pre-tipped to fit the taper hosel - you would order individual shafts for each iron (4i, 5i, etc.). Parallel shafts come the same length, and the clubfitter would buy a bundle of eight shafts and tip-trim each before assembly.

Many of these TTIP hosels will be GI or "player's cavity" irons:

Callaway

X20 Tours / RazrX Forged / X.Forged (2013) / Apex Pro (verify w/ fitter if all are TT)

TaylorMade

Tour Preferred CB and MC models; check with fitter for SLDRs.

Ping

Often used taper-tip in past; can't tell what current irons have TTip hosels

Bridgestone

J40 Cavity Back / J40 Dual Pocket Cavity

These are the OEMs I could find info on quickly. Ask you local clubfitter about other brands.

I guess I should have given more information of why I'm asking. I currently have a set of mizuno MP-59 with C-Taper shafts. I have come to realize I'm not ready for a "players club" yet. Too many off center hits. I need something with a larger head(more foregiving). I love the shafts and want to try and keep them to install in the next set of heads I can find preferably with a .355 hosel. I wasn't sure if there's such a thing(very forgiving larger head with a .355 hosel). Thanks.

Mizuno rated the MP59 as designed for +2 to 13 HDCP.

The cost of transferring the C-Taper shafts be costly. If you transferred shafts from the new irons to the MP59s, this could run you $20 x 8(?) clubs x 2 sets = $320. Then, if you regrip, that's another $80 an iron set.

Something to consider...

Try out the JP-825 and JP-825.Pro irons from Mizuno. Have the fitter insert the C-Taper test shafts. If a JPX model seems to work out for you, get the C-Taper shafts as a custom add-on and see how much you can get for a Mizuno "in-house" trade. And, you could get the new JPX custom-fit to you.

Also, note that the Cleveland 588 iron models are on clearance. You might like the MT or TT models, several of which were fitted with C-Taper Lite models as standard. Adams also has iron sets with C-Taper varieties as stock shafts.

I'd say get a set of maltby TE irons. They fit both .370 and .355 shafts, I use them with a .355 c taper right now and they're a fair bit more forgiving than blades despite looking pretty compact. Definitely launch the ball a bit higher and have traditional lofts. They also only cost 25$ per head and have several models available with more forgiveness as well. You'd be able to reuse the shafts you have now and it would only cost the reshaft job, which isn't too tough to do yourself.

You would need to contact someone who fits Mizunos.

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
