    We love hearing about these positive experiences from our customers. We truly appreciate the business and want every customer to be 100% happy with their purchase. Thank you for sharing KB! If you ever need anything or have any questions just let us know. Hopefully we'll be back to building golf clubs and you'll be back on the course soon!

    Great. Posting on these message boards is always tricky and especially difficult as a company. We're happy to have any conversation when it comes to golf clubs, Sub 70 or just golf in general

    I just wanted to follow up and make 100% sure that nobody takes my responses as being defensive/aggressive/angry, etc. We appreciate all of the conversation and thoughts on our business and the DTC model...and if I get some time I'll even put together a perfectly apples to apples cost analysis for a product or two. Sub 70 definitely isn't going to be for everyone. We know there will always be people who can build clubs themselves and prefer doing it that way...or that simply prefer playing name brand products and will never consider a smaller company...but we certainly think we provide a product and service that should at least be considered by many golfers. If not, no biggie...there is no shortage of great equipment options these days!

    Thanks for the message and thoughts. While consumer pricing is a big part of the DTC business model we certainly think there is a lot more to it then just the cost savings. You get new clubs, custom built and with what we think is better customer service then you're going to get anywhere else. We embrace our customers and want them to be part of what we're doing. There is SO much good golf equipment out there and we respect what everyone else does...but we're definitely going to be more transparent, accessible and hopefully fun to work with. I'm not sure on the relevance of cost when it involves pulling shafts and installing your own...then pulling grips and installing your own...then dealing with selling the pulls just to try and recoup some of the cost. And while that is absolutely possible, you're probably in the 0.5% of golfers that would consider that. I wouldn't blame you for doing it but most golfers don't have the ability to do that or aren't going to spend the time/effort doing it. I think you'll find some real cost savings if you line up other manufacturers products and create an apples to apples comparison. I know I put together the attached file for our 739 irons early last year. The data is from MGS Most Wanted testing. There may be some shaft/grip considerations in there but nothing that would change the drastic cost savings. By the way, we have had customers send us their existing shafts/grips and then we just charge them for the heads and labor cost for the assembly...that could be an option if you want to secure shafts and grips on your own. On the grips...you can choose from the GP Tour Velvet 360, Lamkin Crossline or GP 2G grips for no upcharge. Those grips are perfectly fine for the large majority of guys and they do have a few options. The other grips typically have $4-$5 upcharges just based on what the manufacturer charges us. The Tour Velvet 360 is the stock grip for basically every other manufacturer and they generally have upgrade costs for any higher quality/specialized grip (New Decades, Aligns, MCC +4s, etc.) Thanks again. If anyone ever has any questions always feel free to message me!

    Thanks for the message. We did have a shipment come in 2-3 weeks ago but that batch was sold out before they even hit the website. Our next shipment should be here in 3 weeks or so. Obviously the coronavirus stuff hasn't helped us any on the shipment delays. It sounds like these should be in the building before the end of the month though. Thanks for the interest and if you have any questions just let us know.

    We definitely have 50 and 58 degree lofts on the wedges...but it's possible we're temporarily out of stock on those lofts for a certain finish. We can bend them but I'd expect we'll be restocked on those lofts soon anyway. Thanks for the interest!

    Thanks for the message and sorry for the delay getting back to you. Please see below for some answers to your questions... What is the black finish made of? Is it the crappy PVD or some other type of "surface coating" that wears rather quickly, or something more durable like black nitride or DBM? The 639 black irons do have a tour PVD finish. In our testing we haven't observed any major wear or other issues with the finish. The 699 Pro will be using a DBM finish though. - Is it, or will it at some point be, possible to get the black finish on other models besides the 639cbs? Or even possibly raw? I could see the added expense of doing just a few 1-offs of a certain head in black for "special orders", but offering in raw should actually help with cost as its one less step of the finishing process. (Plus in my case, if I wanted to add the black nitride myself if you don't offer it, it would save me the expense of stripping the chrome first ) We do have black 639 MBs now...so full black MB or black MB/CB combo sets can be purchased. We've discussed offering irons in the raw finish, and the 639 forged line would obviously be the choice for that, but we haven't made a final decision on that at this point. I think we'll do it eventually. Just a matter of getting other projects taken care of first. - Any updates on the modified MB version pictured a few pages back (639-G i think it was called)? I know it was mentioned it wouldn't be available until sometime in 2020, if at all, but here we are already! To be honest I'm not really in the market for new irons this year, but at this cost, a set of those in a durable black finish look very intriguing! We're definitely still working on these in some capacity...but not entirely sure how much they'll resemble the original prototype when they're done. We're working with Tommy Armour III to create another forged iron model and some of the 639-G features might be incorporated. They'll be available in a high end black finish and will be a great players forged iron with a few differences from our current CB or MB - I saw mention on twitter of a 699 Pro, but can't find any info on your website - can you elaborate? I believe that was posted above already...if not, there should be some info on our website now - Since you don't offer heads only for purchase, can you at least ship the clubs un-assembled if I were to purchase the "full club"? Reason I ask is I always make some customizations to my irons before use (doweling, pro-soft inserts, custom ferrules/grips, etc.) and this would simplify the process. I don't think that would be an issue...I would just reach out to our CEO Jason Hiland at 815-621-3556 or Jason@GolfSub70.com to make that happen. He'll definitely do whatever he can to get you what you need. Thanks again for the questions!
  8. Can't wait to follow your success again next year. Thanks Josh!

We will continue to improve as time goes on. The goal will always be to provide the best clubs, prices and customer service possible. Thank you all.

    That is awesome to hear and means that new MB players got at least two big wins over the weekend! (@jacustomgolf) I better order some of these for myself before they sell out These are great instant success stories considering how recently they became available and got into bags. Seriously though, congratulations. Happy to hear you are enjoying them and that they compare well with some other very high end equipment. As always, feel free to contact us if you ever have any questions or if there is anything that we can do to help.

    Honestly a good question. It could work...all depends what you're looking for and comfortable with. I'm sure most guys would combo the CB and regular MB. I would think most MB+ users will buy full sets of those. It could be a little strange since your 7 iron would have a smaller head than your W...but it could work. If you have any questions on that you can certainly reach out to our owner Jason. I'm sure he would have some thoughts on that.

    There will be an option to order combo sets soon. Unfortunately it hasn't been activated yet since the CBs are currently out of stock. I believe they should be back in soon though and we'll add the combo option as soon as they get restocked. The combo sets available on the website will be the CB and regular MB though...so if someone is interested in a combo of the CB and MB+, or MB+ and MB, then they would be better off calling or emailing us. Thanks!
