Here are a couple pictures of our newest prototype. The 639-G wouldn't be available until 2020 if we decide to move forward, but I thought I would share. It should fit between the MB and CB...MB profi

I think we'll have the winner today. I spoke with Chris over the weekend and he just needed to get the winner drawn. Somebody should have good news heading their way soon!

Had a thorough hit with the 699 demos Sub 70 sent me today. I have to say I had a similar experience as @TxTwinDad+2. I placed an order for the 699s and the 739 to test the difference. I received a call directly from Jason and he was kind enough to take the time to chat with me and answer questions about what I wanted to get out of a new set of irons since I'm in the market. Great experience there. 

Next I received a call from one of the staff to confirm my Order details which was really a nice touch from their customer service department. I happened to get some data earlier that day testing some player distance irons and decided to cancel my 739 demo order. No problem, they were on it. 

Voila, my clubs arrive beautifully packed in a snazzy custom Sub 70 box. Excitement ensued. 

The clubs were wrong 😅. I received a complete mish-mash of clubs ranging from a 739 Pitching Wedge, to a 699 4 iron. No big deal. Wrote a quick e-mail and got a call back within 24 hours discussing what I ordered and saying they'd make it right. Well, the good news is they did. 

A new box arrived in under 48h (amazing) with brand new, wrapped and custom labeled irons. They threw in a really awesome Sub 70 hat as a thank you (I'm definitely rocking the hat). This was followed up by an e-mail saying that I could take my time hitting the clubs due to the mixup and just let them know when I was returning them for the appropriate shipping label so that it wasn't a box bonaza at the post office. 

Customer service 10/10. Really appreciate that they took the time to make things right even if we had a rough start. 

 

 

Initial impressions:

Clubs are beautiful. Really nice style, simple and clean. I'd rock these in my bag any day and twice on Sunday if they were in black. If I bought a set, I would spring for the pros just because they look so good at address.

How did they hit? 

Not bad. I really can't complain about the 699 clubs they sent. I was not a fan of the 739. Unfortunately I could not pull any data from the launch monitor today since there was way too much interference at the range with people walking around and crowded bays. 

The 739 pitching wedge had less distance than I'm used to and very little feel off the face of the club. My typical P goes 130-150y depending on whether I take a shoulder-swing or a full swing. I love hitting wedges but with the 739 the best shot I hit, perfectly square in the sweet spot went for about 135y. I found that I did not have a feel for the club through impact and where/how it would land. The perks of the club are that it's hard to chunk it due to the larger sole, and that the dispersion was pretty tight. If I played this on a course I'd be finding the green pretty consistently. 

The 699s on the other hand had a nice feel and decent ball speed off the face of the club. Launch was in a similar trajectory as my AP1 irons with a bit less distance. Feedback on the club was much better than I expected and I knew when I hit off center loud and clear. Forgiveness was there though even on intentional heel/toe shots. That's not to say the clubs aren't duck-hook proof. Swing poorly and you'll find some scary ball flight. Overall I liked the shorter clubs they sent but could not find a rhythm or consistent ball flight with the 5 and 6 irons. I didn't have the same feel and feedback that I had with the higher number clubs but that could be attributable to the 130g shaft I'm not used to playing. Based off this first hit, the irons definitely could be a fit for someone, but were not for me. I can't hit woods off the deck to save my life so I'm very much reliant on my long irons to get in scoring position. Without confidence in those mid to long irons my game will tank. 

I may give the longer irons another smack and report back, but otherwise it was overall a really fun demo and a huge thank you to Sub 70 for stellar customer service.

Pretty cool that TXG did a full review of Sub70!

Watched it yesterday at the gym while I was wrapping up with some cardio. Good video.

It was great to see a review like that since they have not really gotten into sending clubs to YouTube reviewers. I know they have been getting into some MSG testing but it was fun being able to see some actually hit them. It confirmed what I think most of us have seen. They are a great option for budget conscious golfers that still want some top performance.

TXG had a lot of good things to say about Sub70.  All the clubs performed very well especially for the price point.   If I were in the market for new clubs Sub70 would be on my list.   When I replaced my irons last year the 699 pro was not yet available but if it was, they probably would have been in my bag.

Go to the official review of the 699 Pro Irons. There are pictures of the black finish after a few rounds. Let's just say I'm glad I got the satin finish The satin holds up well. Doesn't look like the black does.

Thanks Tom.  I asked because I ordered the regular 699 demos a few months ago and the finish on the back and top line was dull and inconsistent.  Of course, being demos, there's no telling what abuse they had suffered.
