I play One length irons and also have some R7 traditional lengths I mess with once in a while .. I have this urge to buy some Sub70 699 ..most likely wil demo first and see how I like them .. maybe switch out of OL to traditional again.

... The good news is it is very easy to pull Steelfibers if you wish to change to another set. The steel outer shell is pretty durable. Of course I do my own work so there is no expense for re-shafting and I know it isn't cheap to have not done by someone good. Good luck and congrats!

You should put some Miura PP-9003 heads on them. The Straight neck has little offset. Can find them on the Bay. I almost considered these. They are their GI/CB clubs but I read a lot of good things on them.

Brampton 20/20 or Golfworks equivalent. I always use the long cure stuff that is made for golf.

I am trying to find a good deal on Srixon Z585s, that would be the perfect scenario. 

Also, will likely need to do some hosel boring, the Steelfibers that I won are .370 parallel tips.

... I tend to change shafts and heads so I use Quick Set Tour Epoxy. Sets in 5 and cures in 30.

i'm super conservative on the club building, so i have always feared the quick set stuff. always felt like i would make a mistake and feel like i have more room for error with the 24 hour. at least more room for error from a timing perspective.

The other option is to "sand" down the shafts to .355 taper tips.    I was looking at Fujikura Pro's and that is what Fujikura said to do since they only came in .370.

Yep, i thought about that option as well. For me personally, I feel more comfortable using a 0.370 hand reamer than sanding down the shaft tips, feels like the hand reamer is harder to screw up.

The look is very similar, I'm not sure about the 699 being a progressive set like the 0211's however.

No knock on the Sub 70 brand, but at $89 per club, the PXGs are the best deal in golf right now. You get a 30 day trial period with them, and if/when you decide to move on from them, the resale and trade in values with the PXGs will be much greater than the 699s*. In fact you might make a small profit selling the PXGs.

*to be honest, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a retailer willing to do a trade on Sub 70s
