Recommended Posts

Joined the Sub 70 club with an arrival yesterday.  Unfortunately, I didn't buy them directly, which given everything I've heard is a bummer, but I stumbled across a combo 699 pro/639cb set on ebay Christmas day that was about to close for an absurd price.  I took a flyer and ended up winning.  They arrived yesterday and was intending to pull  the shafts and resell them since they were x-flex then re-shaft.  I figured I'd hit them today and see what they felt like before I pulled the shafts.... They weirdly work for me.  A slightly lower more penetrating flight, but by no means too low, almost to a tee similar distance to my gamers and from what I can see out on the target greens they stick in a similar way.  Go figure. 

I'm really happy because I bought them to force me into improving my strike and figured I'd have to grow into them, but now I think I might be able to put them in play much sooner than I had planned.   Still some work to do, but I'm not as far off as my handicap would indicate.

That’s one of the advantages on the DTC brands is you can try a club that may be out of your skill level with a lesser financial commitment! Welcome to the Sub 70 movement!

Due to rising supply chain & shipping costs we will be implementing small price increases for 2022. These increases will go into effect on 1/17. Orders placed by 1/16 will receive the current pricing. 


This was posted by Sub 70 on their various social media pages yesterday. From a question they answered it'll be between 10-15%. 

That's a bummer, however, kudos to them for getting in front of it and letting everyone know ahead of time instead of staying mute and letting it happen.

Went to Golf Galaxy to get my numbers with a 7 iron (hit an Apex DCB). Based on this and my other info, Jason recommended a 699 (4-6)/699 Pro (7-pw) combo with KBS Tour 120 Stiff shafts and +1/4" length. Thinking about pulling the trigger soon. The DCBs felt awesome too (but twice the price!).

I play the 699 Pro's with KBS Tour V90 Stiff +1/4 inch in length. I can tell you you will love them. Been in the bag for two seasons and staying. I don't even look at other irons when they come out. Good luck on your decision.

I also should have pointed out that I sent Jason Hiland a note with my swing info from Golf Galaxy and asked if we could talk this week. He called me back the same day on a Sunday

Jason also did the same for me and he fit me to those shafts and lengths. Being in sales I know customer service is what it's all about. Sub -70 is all about the customer service. My bag keeps growing with their equipment.

@Tom the Golf Nut How do you like the JB wedge? I will have a big gap between my PW and my Cleveland 56* after I pull the X-20s from my bag.

I know my irons will not be built in a day...but still I have checked my order status multiple times today. I guess I am excited. 🥳

I actually like the JB Wedge as well. The sole grind allows you to open the face without lifting the face up higher. I got the 699 Pro gap wedge in my set which is at a standard 50 degree. Then I ordered the 56 degree JB wedge bent to 55 degree. I have a 60 CBX. So this bend in the JB gave me even gapping.

My only mistake was not waiting for the satin finish to be available at the time. I went with black and my OCD is having issues with scratches generated because the sand between the ball and club face. I was actually looking on line at lunch today for gunsmith refinishing blue except in black.

A buddy and I were talking about black vs satin earlier today for this very reason...

Congrats on the sticks you are going to love them.  As Tom the golf nut says, I don't even look at other clubs.  When I ordered mine it took about 3 1/2 weeks. I was trying to decide between T200's and 699 Pro's.  I don't second guess my decision one bit. My only issue is I went with a different fitter and not sure I got the correct shafts.  I'll be seeing Sub 70 at the end of the month to make sure I in fact have the correct shafts. If I ever need another new set they will also be sub 70.

I wish I could have headed to Sycamore in person, but I am a bit far away.  I am hopeful that Jason's recommendations via phone will work out well. I briefly thought about trying to go out there when I am in Chicago next week for work, but will have absolutely no time to do so.

We do have a fitting cart in Creedmoor, NC just north of Durham as well. You may be able to set something up over there if necessary. You can find the fitting cart locations at https://www.golfsub70.com/sub-70-fitting-cart-locations/ Jason is VERY good at getting the right options/specs out to people even when it's over the phone though so hopefully you're good to go. If not, we'll help figure it out. Thanks!
