The heads are very small, and will take some getting used to, but the feel is fine.
One thing I will say. It's almost hard for me to hit knockdowns because they are so long and crisp off the face. I was hitting 3/4 56s 95 yards yesterday when I was trying to hit it at the 70 yard target.
Some of that is rust, but still...uber long.
I would have expected that from the 1018's, being forged and all. Hit a forged club on the button, and you see some insane distance.
Wouldn't have expected that from the 8620's, since they are cast.
I've head they have a similar shape to the Vokeys, so the smaller head may not be much of an issue for me. Problem is, no one carries them, so I'm going to have to take a chance on them.
