Sparky I played a Wilson Duo Spin ball. Man, talk about a soft feel....that was too much.
Sparky - I did not realize that was you! Now that I look I see it was Sparky14.....duh. You are not the only member claiming harsh feel on the DBM, BTW.
Feel is so subjective and affected by sound too. I'm coming off of PING G400 irons that are "clicky" faced clubs. Combine that with soft tip graphite, senior flex shafts AND my Wilson Duo balls, the DBMs feel smooth and soft. RE: size. One of the things that attracted me to the G400 iron was the more compact design and thinner topline than the older G series (G10/15/20). My G400 irons look HUGE now, but when I hold them side-by-side with a DBM, the blade is about the same length - less offset and thinner topline tho.
