I have both the 639CB and 699 6 and 9 iron demos. KBS X Tour shafts. First off, both clubs are beautiful pieces of work. When you have them in hand, it is obvious that they are high quality. I especially like the forged look of the CB’s.
I have taken them to a Foresight Simulator twice and all distances were consistent with each trip.
I have RAC LT’s, dinosaur clubs I know. Overall, the 699s perform and feel amazing. The ball jumps off the face . Across the board, my shot height is consistent between the 3 sets, but as you will see, the 699’s really stand out. Picked up 15 yards carry with the 6 and 12 yards with the 9 iron compared to my clubs and hit the ball straighter. To be honest, I have really struggled to hit the 639CB consistently. I think it is a case of the Chef and not the food as I know others can hit them. With the offset, I probably need the lie adjusted +2 as the demos are just standard lie because I cannot get consistent contact.
I am so impressed that I am considering a 6 hour drive to meet the guys and get a proper fitting. I am excited to try their other clubs as well. I am so happy to have run across the company on twitter as someone who has had the same irons for 14 years and has no desire to drop $2k. I have shown off the clubs to several buddies who drop $1,500 on new sticks every few years, and they are impressed.
I also want to point out that I originally mis-ordered my demos and embarrassingly had to email shortly after placing the order. Jason personally called me within an hour and talked me through the demo fitting. Great service!
