I finally had a chance to play a couple of rounds with my new-to-me 939X 4H in my bag. Love it! Rocket launcher! 🚀🚀🚀

Have stand bag and 2 wedges from Sub70 golf and love them all. You can demo their clubs before buying them which is a great idea. Before spending several hundred dollars on a driver or set of irons you can try them out. Might have to demo a driver next spring myself. I also like that you can customize your shafts and grips. Definitely worth a look into Sub70 golf.

Glad it’s working out! It really is an explosive club! Got to say the driver is more of the same! Check out our progress with the test on the testing thread!

I have more rounds in with 699 Pro's. Man do I like these clubs. Only issue is they flight very high. Sunday's round and the scramble I played in on Tuesday I had more than normal balls plug in the green even with it being pretty wet around these parts. Still my dispersion is better and better shots I know I made the right decision on buying these clubs. If you are on the fence about buying these clubs, feel free to jump over, you won't be disappointed. 

I have a decision to make tho, I am not positive on the shafts. I had them built with KBS tour 130 shafts. I went and paid for a shaft fitting after I received them and that guy said I should go with Project X LS 6.5/1250.  I have talked to Cody and he said no problem changing them out. After Bandon next week I'll decide.

You’ll want to get that fight down for bandon! So jealous that you get to go! I went last year and it was amazing! 
Also I did the same thing with my 699 pros, went to the kbs 120 after having that same issue with my ball flight being too high.  They swapped them out no problem.

There are lots of tips and tricks for playing links in the wind, I spent a summer working and playing at Bandon every day. If the wind is howling my best advice is to take 2 extra clubs and choke up an inch. Take a regular swing. 

As for the 699 Pro, great club! As for shaft change... If you are hitting them consistently center strike I wouldn't worry too much about changing shafts.

So I got in my Sub70 949x 4 hybrid with UST Proforce V2 shaft yesterday and took it to the garage today to see how it preformed and I don’t think the reviews that say rocket 🚀 does it justice. I got it to go between my 7 hybrid and 3 hybrid. My 3 is usually between 210 and 220 and my 7 is 180 ish. Apparently the 949x has a warp drive because it was a consistent 240 and would be straight or I could fade or draw on command still playing with the weights but seem to like both slots with the heaviest weights.  So I guess my 3 hybrid will be my in between club lol. I will see how it preforms on the course this weekend but what a beautiful club it is.

I have both the 939X 4 hybrid (21* loft) and 949 Pro 5 hybrid (24* loft) in my bag, and I concur with you. I have not been able to hit a 20 to 22 degree hybrid more than 195-200 yards in more than a dozen years, but I hit that 939X 4 hybrid close to 220 yards on solid strikes. Yesterday, I played in damp 35-45 degree weather when I would have expected to get reduced yardages — and I did with most of my clubs. However, I hit several shots of more than 200 yards with that 4 hybrid, and a few of 185 to 190 yards with the 949 Pro 5 hybrid.

On one shot yesterday, I had just over 200 yards to the green, hitting from a slightly uphill lie in the rough, which should have given me reduced yardage. I didn’t want to hit my 19* 5 wood because the lie was rather sketchy and I was afraid of topping or chunking it, so I hit the 939X hybrid, hoping for a short chip shot from just short of the green (15-20 yards, at worst). Instead, I pured the shot, and it carried just past pin-high and bounded off the back of the green into tall fescue. I found the ball, but had to take an unplayable and a lateral drop. One of my playing partners said, “you were in there in three, right”. When I told him that I was in that deep rough/junk over the green in two, he replied “how did you hit it that far from that ugly lie in the rough?”  All I said was “4 hybrid “.

So what you're saying is you have an in who can get us all tee times! Set it up!

But I'm also curious how Fish's round at Bandon went and if he was able to keep his flight a bit more controlled.

No multi quote for me. 

 

4 awesome days at Bandon. Weather cooperated and we only one day that was misty with limited sprinkles. I wore shorts everyday and a wind breaker. The wind wasn't bad nothing to crazy, we did have to adjust a few times 2 clubs but it wasn't bad. I did flight the ball down a few times that worked out pretty good. The 699 pros worked awesome and can't say how happy I am I bought these clubs. I'm actually debating not sending them back for different shafts other than my 5 iron needs a tweak. I am not sure its correct angle/degree set.

I'm a 16 hdcp going into these 4 rounds.

played trails on Thursday,  91

Sheep ranch Friday 88

Bandon Sat  95, Forgot how to chip and putt  

Pacific Sun  88

According to GHIN I am now at 15.6  

Such a fun time and couldn't be happier with 699 pro's. 

I didn't use a caddie. A few guys did and don't think any of them were named Jack. One guy in our group did have a caddy and I get his number since he's from Portland.

@JFish350  I have the 699 Pros in 5-AW and the 3U.  I need to fill that spot where the 4 would live.  I'm looking at a 4U,  4I or a 4H.   

Do you have any thoughts on your 4i and whether you'd like to change it to a 4U or 4H?

Sorry for the long wait time.

I really like the 4 iron. At this point I'm keeping it. I sent the 3 U back and got the 939 3 hybrid and pretty happy with that decision. 

 

I have a higher swing speed not sure if that helps or not, I also do not carry a 3 wood as the 3hybrid does that job.

@JFish350Thanks for the response.  I'm leaning towards hybrid just to have some more options at the longer end of the bag.

I've been on somewhat of a frenzy for purchasing Sub 70 clubs lately, and I have absolutely zero regrets. My first purchase was the Pro 3 Wood with the Aldila NV NXT 75 X. That club is an absolute rocket launcher for me. I am hitting it at least as far as my Titleist TS3 driver, which is insane. With the distance and accuracy I'm getting out of a 3 wood, I'm no longer regularly playing with my driver.

In addition to the 3 wood, I've gotten the 949X 5 Wood, 699 Pro Utility Iron (17*), the TAIII Black Irons (4-PW), 286 Raw 50*, JB Raw 54*, JB Raw 58*, and the TAIII Wide Blade Putter. Each and every club performs just as well as any name-brand club I've tried and/or played. I can't say enough good things about this company. Happy to answer any questions if anyone is interested.

I took advantage of the CyberMonday sale and picked up the 849D Driver with UST PROFORCE V2 Black 6F3,  the 939X  3Hybrid with Aerotech Steel Fiber Hybrid HLS 780 F3 and 699 Pro Utility 19.5° with Aerotech Steel Fiber i80 Graphite. 

I only had a couple of outside range sessions before the Chicago weather closed the door on the outside season.  The clubs feel great,  I have to see how the gaps are between a few of the clubs.   I did join an indoor golf league at X Golf near where I live so I've had at least 3-4 9 hole rounds playing on the simulator.    Not exactly the same, but keeping the swing going and my hands in shape (no glove for me). 

I've hit the new driver and hybrid on the simulator and they both are forgiving and have distance built in.
