Finally hit the 3 wood the other day. Aside from my swing being off from not touching a club for 3 or so months, it's solid. Off the deck, when I actually put a decent swing on it, I was getting 205+ and off the tee it's somewhere past 220.

Hybrid is a solid club;   I like it,  just didn't perform as well as the Titleist for me but that could be due to the shaft.    I have one for sale in the classified section if you are interested. 

Awesome, I just looked at it, and you should have a PM in your inbox now...

I highly recommend anyone who is looking or considering new equipment to at least give Sub70 a look!
I am now playing the Sub70 699 irons 5-Gap, 699 utility and 54 and 58 degree wedges.

Great thread so far and very informative!

Couple of questions for @GolfSub70:

 - 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?

 - 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 🙂 )

 - 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! 

 - I saw mention on twitter of a 699 Pro, but can't find any info on your website - can you elaborate?

 - 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.

They must've just put that up, I swear it wasn't there over the weekend.  Anyway, Sweet Baby Jesus!  Those look amazing, very clean, minimal "branding", reduced head size and offset, and a durable nitrocarburized finish.  I may have to pick up a demo when available.  

Also anxiously awaiting if they announce plans to release that 639-G they teased earlier - that in black could be the one!  I swore I was set on equipment for the year, but at this price for a nice new set of toys it's hard to pass up.  I'm still thrilled with my TM P770s and have no intention of ditching them, but a demo of of the 639-G or 699 Pro could make that thinking go right out the window.

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!

I am really interested in the 639 mb and I have seen and tried one of their wedges from a friend  and I loved it. AIso see nothing but positive reviews of them everywhere I read, but my only question is the gapping between the Pw in the set and the wedges don’t line up. The PW is 45* and the closest wedge that would make sense for my gapping would be a 50, 54, 58 preferably. Downside is they don’t have a 50 or 58.  Any chance those will be coming out anytime soon?

You could get them bent to fit the distance gaps.

1 degree difference in loft with a wedge is abou 3-4 yards...highly doubt any amateur would be affected by that type of gapping, wedges and irons can be bent to better gap if needed. Someone that can hit different shots with clubs by choking down, shorter swings and/or ball placement can get around “loft” issues.

Lastly tons of wedge options out on the market

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!

I asked Jason this a few months ago when looking to purchase a set of 699’s. He told me they prefer to control all aspects of the build and I could send my shafts and grips to them for assembly. I ended up buying a used set on the bay and doing the work myself.

That's understandable I guess, they don't want a bunch of hacks doing shoddy builds and giving their product a bad rep.  I guess the only extra work for me would be to pull whatever stock shaft came with them and then having to resell them to recoup some of my costs when I put my own in.

This is what I did. It made an already great price even better since I had my preferred shafts and grips already. The effort was worth the extra money I save especially when you enjoy doing it.

After doing some research, all from the data on most wanted, and after hearing from no putts given, I ordered the demo set from Sub70. They should be here this week, and I cannot be more excited to test them out. Its perfect timing work has slowed down, and my parents are coming into town this weekend. So, that means I will get plenty of range time, and test the two clubs in a weekend full of golf. Can't wait to see them in action!

Awesome!  If you have any questions at all reach out to them either directly or on social media.  Most responsive smaller OEM that I've ever seen!

I'm waiting on the 699 Pros as the offset of the 699 is just too much to me. They have listed this item as coming Jan, then Feb, and now Mar. Just wondering how confident Sub 70 is that these will even come this month or any time soon? Not doubting they are coming at some point, just curious.

Also, with the black coating, does any manufacturer currently make black steel shafts? That would look pretty sweet, black on black.
