I like the thought of iron with little or no offset. So without the need to go to blades, who makes irons with minimal offset?

I have a set of Wilson Staff Pi5 irons which are cavities with virtually no off set. I really like them and due to the unpopularity of Wilson can be found at great prices.

A few more
Snake eyes 600C
Hogan Egde Pro
Titty 690CB
Srixon have a few - I-201, I-301
Precept/Tourstage have a few as well -TS-201, EC 603, Z101

Maxfli Revolutions are great nearly zero offset iron and they have the Revo II out aswell.

I wouldn't call the Hogan FTX and Ping S59 minimal offset, not in the long irons anyway.

Good point. Many of today's so called minimal offset irons aren't so minimally offset. Zero offset or near zero offset irons are particularly hard to find in a cavity back. The old Revolutions are the best I have seen in this respect.

I had a hit of the new Cobra forged C.B irons at a demo night recently.I wasn't a fan of Cobra but these were very imressive.

Cleveland TA-3, great iron and no offset at all really, not even in the long irons, i never thought i would get rid of my hogans but to all the cavity lover's out there, this is a gem, and cheap now too!
p.s. get the gunmetals, they're awsome!

were they the SS forged?

I was much the same, i did not have a terribly high opinion of king cobra either, however once i had a hit of these i had to buy a set. easily the best irons i had tried out.

No they are a newer model.From memory they are called Cobra forged C.B
I hear today that Geoff Ogilvy has singed to play Cobra this year.
