When I use small head .... I am more in control.

I had decided to go with small head

maybe bro Duval just helped Mr Miura make a point when the latter said smaller head easier to hit...

This MIURA “Series 1957” Classic design blade goes through the same forging process which makes the Miura Irons so successful in the consistency of the strike of the ball and in terms of feel.

"I have a special pride in this club," Mr. Miura says. "That's because it's so easy to hit."

A small blade? Easy to hit? In Mr. Miura's innovative mind, it makes sense. He doesn't buy in to the myth that small, blade-like heads have to be hard to hit. Instead, he encourages recreational golfers to try this pleasing design. The smaller size -- 15 percent smaller overall -- makes the clubhead easier to square up at impact. But Mr. Miura was careful to make the face dense and substantial, to deliver a robust impact and an aggressive ball flight.

The smaller head also glides through the turf easily -- and Mr. Miura added key touches in the design to enhance this advantage. For instance, examine the heel and the toe. The corners are ground upward ever so slightly. It's barely enough to notice, but it's enough "relief" to ensure the best path for the club through the turf.

"I'm always looking for new ways to help the recreational player hit the ball more easily," Mr. Miura says. "With this design, you really just have to put your swing on it" -- and here he smiles -- "In a way, we've done the thinking for you, so you can just play and enjoy."

just a theory....

it could be that smaller head weight's "lighter" and with a lighter head, plus a shaft that matches your swing speed.

You found the "truth" about your swing.

There are a lot of golfers who uses smaller head. 420 to 450cc and most of them wouldn't changed them becoz they have already solved the mystery of hitting a draw or straight drive.

Tried the Titleist 712 CB Forged at OCC yesterday. Super sweet!! I think I might have been infected with Small Head Syndrome as well (looks at his GI clubs in disgust)...

haha yes ... i tried mizuno irons before with really small heads and thin top line ... the feeling it gives can't be expressed in words. you just psychologically have this confidence of not having to worry about missing it and that it's just going to hit the sweet spot.
