Just wondering if anyone tried the 1" neck profile - wondering what's its like from anyone who might have tried one. Fantasizing about a possible future build.

For comparision, I have a 50's round profile, which feels big to me (feels bigger than it would seem it would be) but definitely not too big.

I've got 2 different Strats with the NoNeck shape neck - those are even bigger, one feels bigger than the other. Big, round but not uncomfortable to play, In fact, its quite nice feeling to me - YMMV of course.

Really? It all depends on hand size, finger length and flexibility. To say this neck is great means nothing. Would you prefer a waistband size of 32 or 40? It depends on your weight and size. Everybody is different. Sorry for the sermon, but all too often I read about claims about this guitar or whatever. Also, scale length, fret size and action. The list goes on.

....though, I'd say that variation in hand size is a LOT more modest than variation in waist size. It's still very subjective and some people prefer bigger necks while some prefer smaller ones, but I think the range where preference starts to become an unusual outlier is a lot tighter than waist size or shoe size or the like.

1" is definitely unusually thick - thicker than an old 50s telecaster, even. I'd say unless you know you like really thick necks, that one. might require some adjustment.
