Quality: 

Good quality. One of those little plastic things on top of the hosel came loose. What are those things anyway? The 845s did not have them.

Pros: 

Larger than average head size, big sweet spot that is hard to miss. Alignment stripe on back of cavity makes set up a breeze. For a forgiving club it is easy to manufacture shots when the situation arises, which it does fairly often for me. Higher than average ball flight. Feels like what it is, a cast cavity back club. I like the appearance which is very traditional at address.

Cons: 

TA 845s used to have the loft stamped on the club face, in addition to the number on the bottoms. These do not. I suspect the lofts are stronger than the old 845s, in other words, with a 43 to 45 degree 'pitching wedge.' You hit will these farther but that is not the name of the game.

Summary: 

Good clubs for the money. If you can't hit these well, consider lessons.
