Yea, the 905S/T are both sub 460, i have a tour issue one upstairs, fantastic club. The 909's are good clubs, but so are the 905's and 907's.

seriously looking into one of these...

Well, to be quite technical, the 909 D3 is 440 cc. I still play my r7 Quad.

I definitly do not like the 460 drivers, but haven't found a new model in a couple years that is less than 440cc (which is what the Titleist 909D5 is, I think). I was just looking at the Hot List today and they have the list of sizes with a few models less than 460, but not much smaller. I would love to see some of the new technology in a smaller head. I currently play a TaylorMade R540XD and have for years. I have owned 3-4 other drivers in 460cc size since purchasing the 540, but always go back to it because I prefer the smaller size and feel it's easier to 'work' than the larger heads.

I would love to find a new driver in that 390-425 size and I expect every year that someone will come out with one. Johnny Miller in Golf Digest or Magazine said in his column a year or 2 ago that he expected to see manufacturers start to design and sell smaller headed drivers in a couple years and I'm still waiting.

(And 'Yes' I know the Cleveland HiBore models until the Monster have been less than 460, but they still look like 460 and the Callaway FT-i was also under 460, but it was too expensive and didn't feel right.)

the new nike dymos come in smaller cc versions. I want to say around 380cc's. Its the model Kim has been using and nike says that tiger is going to use when he comes back.

The new TM R9 is 420 i believe and the the R7 limted is 440. The driver I use, Hibore XL Tour is a great river and i thnk its under 400- although it might be just over but is def under 460 and i love the small head as it is much easier to work and the 3 dgree open face suits my game perfectly

i hit the r7 425... its just not my style...

i just hate these 460 heads... its like swinging a coffee can on a stick, i wish they'd bring back the launcher 400....

im not consistent enough to get one of the titleists drivers....

The older callaway erc fusion is smaller but easier to hit than the titlest..that was a great driver if you can get over the sound, and there was a 2005 model cobra that came in a 400cc size that was supposed to be aimed at middle handicappers
