It's not necessarily the 460cc that's the worst issue... it's the excessive shaft lengths combined with shafts that are too light, and on top of that progressively more ridiculous lie angles (like a 60 deg lie on a 46" driver).
The ancient swingweight system was a decent stab at weighting clubs but only at 1/2" club shaft increments, with all clubs using the same shaft - from the days of wooden woods and same steel shafts as your irons. It takes no account whatsoever of total club mass, so a super lightweight shaft and driver clubhead should not be anywhereclose to the same swingweight as your irons. See Wishon's book on search for the perfect club.
that's my rant
And I do practice what i'm preaching... i've a Mizuno 611 head at 44" long, 56-1/2 deg Lie with a 100gm Nunchuk shaft in it (and have gone to all nunchuk in my irons too... so it's like the olden days with irons and woods all shafted with the same shaft for me ;-) )
