  1. This year started with my lowest score ever. I kept playing really well until about mid May when I slipped on a swing in wet weather and pulled a muscle in my back. I wasn’t out too long but it took a bit to get my swing back. In early July I started playing well again then the retina detached in my right eye. I couldn’t play for 5 weeks and it took forever to get my swing back. My swing started to feel good again but the weather turned bad and then my other retina detached. So for next year I’m hoping to stay healthy.
  2. I bought from Sub 70 and I am happy with my purchase and Jason was great to work with. If you live close enough go in and they will fit you which I was able to do. I have an open slot in my bag and I’m kind of curious about that 699 utility. I’m just looking for something I can hit about 200 off the tee that won’t hook as much as my hybrid will do. Can you post what you like about the 699. I’m not going to be able demo one until early next year so I wouldn’t mind hearing your thoughts.

    Your ball?

    I’ve been playing the Titleist DT Trusoft the last couple of years and will play the Wilson 50/50 when the leaves start falling and balls will disappear in the leaves. They both perform the same off the driver for me but the Trusoft is much better around the green. I’ve tried better balls but I play between 14-17 handicap so I can lose a fair amount of balls so I settled on the Trusoft because I feel I get the best bang for the buck.
  4. Another Wilson product. The 50/50 elite the best cheap ball.
  5. If you go to the “ Shiney Metal “ forum on this site there is a Sub 70 thread their also and someone asked about making a blended set and someone from Sub 70 answered it was something he thought it was something they could do. I play their 739 irons and that 6 iron is really easy to hit. Not sure how those would blend with what you’re looking at but the 739s are another really nice set of irons they put out.

    I bought the 739s. When I ordered the demos to try Jason called me to make sure I was ordering the right irons to try. I’ve been bouncing between a 14/16 handicap the past year so he felt the 739s were the best fit for me. I tried them and liked them a lot. They were comparable to any GI iron I demoed. I decided to buy them and went to there facility to get fit. Unfortunately I’ve only used them twice because 4 days after I received them the retina in my right eye detached and I’ve been on the shelf. I can’t wait to get back to using them but first impression after the 2 rounds were very positive. That being said there is no reason you can’t demo both it will only cost you $40.
  7. Sub 70 has a very easy demo program to use. $20 and they’ll send you 6 and a 9 to use for a couple of weeks.
  8. I’m pretty happy with my Sub 70 739 irons I recently purchased. They compared well with any of the major OEM game improvement iron. Quality stuff, custom built, excellent service and very affordable. They are new company. They have irons for all skill levels. There is a pretty big thread on them that’s what got me interested. Check out they’re website.
  9. The Max Impact Technology sort of reminds of the pressure piston that Adams put in their XTD irons several years ago. I had a set of the XTDs and the ball just exploded of the face with a pretty soft feel. I’ll be interested to try this.
  10. I recently bought a set of irons from Sub 70. These are great people to work with and Jason will go the extra mile.

    I picked up my 739 irons yesterday and played my first round today. It took a few holes to get used to clubs that were actually made for my height. The clubs were shorter than what I had before and at the start I hit about every other shot a little thin. By the back 9 shots were launching easy and my accuracy was definitely better than what Its been most days this year. I noticed with the 8,9 and PW that the ball was not rolling much past my ball mark on the green. I can’t wait to see how I’m scoring after few more rounds. I’m really glad I took a chance on Sub 70. I think they look pretty sharp too.

    Recently I posted that I demoed the Sub 70 739 irons. I was impressed. They held their own with any of GI irons I demoed these last few months. Before I tried the 739s I thought I knew what I was buying. I went back and tried what I thought was my first choice ( Cobra F9 ) and I really could not find much difference in how the two irons performed for me. I decided to pull the trigger on the 739s. Similar performance and a much smaller price tag is a no brainer to me. Back when I ordered the demo clubs I got a phone call from Jason the owner thanking me for my order and he mentioned that if I decided to purchase the 739s since I lived about. half hour away I could come for a complementary fitting. I went in today for the fitting. There has have been a lot talk on this thread about how great Jason is to work with. In person he more than lived up to the hype. I have some physical issues that effect my golf swing. He was very patient. We tried some different things until he felt he had a pretty good read on my swing and how my issues affect it. I never felt rushed and he made me feel very comfortable. I won’t get into what specs my irons will be but one thing Jason emphasized is if the set up is not quite right call him and they’ll do whatever is necessary to get them right. I’ll have the irons early next week and I can’t wait to put them in play. My wife has worked in customer service most of her adult life and when I told her about my experience she said those people do it right. If you’re looking for new clubs give these guys a shot. The demo program is easy and Jason has been great to work with. Oh and for those of you that have been saying how good the 639 cbs look. I picked one up while I was in the fitting room and Jason stepped out to get something else to try. It is really sharp looking in person and I took a few swings and it felt great wish my game was worthy of them. Maybe some day.

    I’ve seen a lot of comments about the 639 and 699s here. They also have a game improvement iron the 739 that I am demoing now for those of us that need a little help. I’ve played a couple of rounds with the 6 and 9 irons they sent and I’m impressed. I’ve tried just about every GI that’s come out the last couple of years and these more than hold their own. They don’t lack in distance, they get the ball up in the air easy from short or long grass and my accuracy has been better. I thought I had narrowed my choices down to 2 but these have elbowed their way in and they are half the cost I was planning on spending. The 739s are really worth considering if you’re looking for a Game Improvement iron.
  14. I always carry granola bars. I always have a big yeti cup of ice water. Depending on the time of day if it’s around lunchtime at the turn I might grab a hot dog and Diet Coke.
  15. I have have aTour Edge cart bag. I play at least once a week and usually go to the range at least that much. I'm going on my 4 th year with it and it is still in great shape. I think I paid just under a hundred for it.
