If you are looking for forgiveness, AF-505s are very very forgiving without sacrificing too much of the forged feel.   
No it's not AF-302 or SUS316 soft but you know it's forged when you hit it and the looks at address is quite nice. 
I only have the 4 & 5 irons but when I pull off a 185 or 195 shot with them it goes well most of the time.   

I think Orion are really Kyoei heads with Shinagawa grinds + some CNC on the back face for a more modern look.

don't know anything about Muziik irons

My vote is for the AF-505s 
DR: Modart MA01D+R / Diamana W
FW: Modart MA01F / Diamana 'Ahina
UT: Modart MA01H / Crazy STP
IR:  Epon AF-505/SUS316 / Modus 125
WG: MG S-01 / Modus Wedge 125
PT:  Ping Vault 2.0 CRAZ-E H ( in trial mode )

Dale, the only set that I don't see you turning over within 3 months with a 50% loss is the 505s...they are very very good...

Muziik will be good as well...am sure Orion is fine, am guessing but the look yururish to me...probably crisp..

The feel of 505 is good and they look nice over the ball...unless you're a 5 or under hcap you really should be playing GI...I'm guessing you're in the 8/9 range...505...

I love the short heel to toe, chunky look...they have a thin top line and less offset compared to anything I've seen in their forgiveness category...I used to be one of you guys that obcess over offset , sole width...then my mind was free'd....

...look a bit of the down and dirty with a muffin top girl is better than yur hand..,

I get the players forged CB trend but let's face it, most of us aren't that good and we sacrifice enjoyment of the game over club vanity...I love the feel of a soft forging as much or more than anyone but not as much as I love the sight of an arrow right at the flag when a lot of money is on the line...
