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.

    • Number 10. Boise, Idaho Saturday 06/24/2017. I played Quail Hollow golf Club, white tees 5727 yards. This is visually the best course I've played to date. It's built into the hills which allows for many elevated holes. The views at the top are fantastic and challenging. Yes, its short in yardage but difficult to play. There are many blind shots over hills and around corners, plus sagebrush, trees, thick rough and water. The greens vary in size from very large, to small and narrow, but they were fast and difficult to putt. I should have brought two putters, a lighter putter for the fast greens and a heavy putter for the slow greens. I only have my heavy putter. I played with three guys, the Boise guys, who were part a larger money group. I was asked which course was my favorite, and prior to playing this course, I didn't have one. Whenever I think about the places that I've gone, it's the people that I remember. We can all relate to the challenges of golf and tend to be our true selfs on the golf course. Today was no different, a lot of laughs, frustration and camaraderie. I think one of the best moments we had was when one of the Boise guys drove the green on a par 4 and 4-putted from about 12 feet. He hit a great drive over trees that blocked the green from our view. We were all happy to see his ball on the green for an eagle putt. We had all struggled with the putts, but we thought he would at least get a birdie, which would help their team score. I know he was disappointed when he 4-putted and we understand, but it was also so funny I asked him if he could replay the hole and do the same thing so that I could record it. We all had a big laugh, and that's the bond that we golfers have. I shot 49 on the front and 45 on the back, with an 8 on a par 3 and par 4, total 94.   
    • I haven't heard a pro credit PB for a win. But this guy credits the PB Pro with the win, implying and sometimes stating that PB helped him.
    • This local rule is used primarily in the UK on links courses where putting from long distances off the green is the norm. IMO it should only be used if chipping over is not a reasonable proposition.
    • (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain) https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html I'd love to win the Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red. I like the patriotic colors.  This cart not only looks great, but it would make life so much easier.  Believe it or not, my current golf cart is actually a "pull cart".  Yes, the old fashioned kind that you just don't see anymore, but I still use it. Thus, I'd love to win a new Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap.   I thank you, my sore shoulder thanks you, and my aching back thanks you :)      
    • So the kid did something stupid - he shouldn't get killed for it. I really hope to see the end of that bizarre cult regime some day.
