I've never tried one of these, but I think I would know what the bad and good things are that I should expect. Good ones: 1. They must be spin monsters; at least, those with somewhat lower swingweights (due to long length AND large head). 2. They must be serving monsters, too (due to long length AND large head). 3. More forgivingness (due to large head). 4. More reach (due to long length). Bad ones: 1. Lots less directional control (due to long length AND large head). 2. Much more difficult to hit balls coming close to the body (due to long length). 4 good to 2 bad! Sounds like the way to go. So, why isn't everybody using them? Edit: Hummm and I guess directional control is even worse if you're a 1 hand backhander, like me.
