Agreed. The CB version may already be on the list for my next set of clubs after I play the 699s for a few years.

Love the look. I was a little disappointed to discover there was no tungsten in the toe of them, however. I believe they will have a .355 taper tip option, however, so that's a huge plus.

Going to be hard to want to move on from my 699 Pros. They put up incredible ball speed and distance even on mishits.

Alright fellas.  Who has a 699 pro U.  I have a hybrid that I like but don't love.  When I'm on with it its great, when I'm off its useless.  It's kind of a love hate thing I've had with hybrids.  I like the look of/feel more comfortable standing over an iron and am mulling the idea of swapping the hybrid out for a driving iron.  I'm reasonably sure I'm going to love it off the tee, but I'm unsure of how it's going to perform off the deck in the fairway and light rough.  I need it to fill a gap between my 4 iron and 3 wood.  If it's only good off the tee that's not going to work for me.  Any experience?

 

I've got a 699 Pro 3U.  I really like it off the tee, it has a nice low piercing flight.  Off the deck it works quite well.  It feels just like a long iron and has more or less the same characteristics you'd expect.  A good hit can carry 220-230, but mishits aren't super forgiving.  My miss with it is typically a toe-ish block which really kills the distance. So when I can't hit it.... I really can't hit it. 

That being said, I've enjoyed having it in the bag and expect to grow into it a bit more.

I just have to hop on again and echo how superb Sub 70's service is.  I ordered Wednesday afternoon (west coast time zone) which I'm guessing hit them right around closing.  I sent an email asking for it to be built at D5.  Got an email back before the end of the day from them confirming and noting that they'll build it to that weight.  Got another email in the morning the next day confirming the build.  Received shipping confirmation this morning.  Elapsed time is just under 48 hours. 

It wasn't exactly a huge order, but it was custom.  For it to be run this well speaks very highly of how the company is managed.  I'm happy to be ordering from the source this time,  and am looking forward to putting the driving iron in play next week.  I have a links style course out here that I think it's going to be lights out on -- especially if its as windy as its been.

Took my new 699/699 Pros to the range today to try them out for the first time. Felt really good. Playing a work round on Tuesday with a vendor. Can't wait to put them to work!

Played My first round today with the 699/699 pro combo. I'm very impressed. I think Jason nailed the shaft recommendation and other details. Extremely happy with my purchase.

My new 286 50* wedge arrived last night. The fine detailed milling is awesome. Even nicer in person versus the pics on Sub 70s site.

I almost got my 286s black. It sure does look nice. Wait until you hit it. Finally got mine on the course and they performed great.

I have the 699 Pro's and love them, I've mentioned I wasn't sure I had the correct shafts. I had the chance to visit the facility in Sycamore and couldn't more happy that I did. Kevin was our (my wife and I) fitter/ pro for the day. He was so accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful that I was ready to move to Sycamore Ill. Not only did he check my clubs, watch my swing and not laugh out loud, he also reassured me I had what's need in equipment with a slight 1* down bend and gave me a few swing tips. He then helped my wife with a 3 wood I bought for her. We ended up with a 5 & 7 wood for her and helped her with her swing as well. If someone from Sub 70 reads this, please give my thanks to Kevin for a great afternoon and also the suggestion of PJ's for lunch. Fish and chips were awesome. 

 

Thank you everyone at Sub 70.

I also had a great fitting session with Kevin for some wedges. He was very patient with me also. I’ve only had the wedges outside twice but the wedges have been great so far. I had a couple of sessions with Jason back when I bought my irons and he was great also. I would feel confident going to either.

I have become intrigued with Sub 70.  

I'm nothing great...normally in the 80s.  Despite the fact that am not a "playa'"....I absolutely despise a thick topline.  I saw the 699 and the 699 Pro Black irons and started getting the itch.

I sent an email to customer service...explaining my poor game/swing statistics/tendencies and asked if the 699 or 699 Pro would be "too much" for me.

Less than an hour later, the owner...Jason Hiland...called me direct.  Jason said that absolutely either one of those sets should work for my swing.  About 30 minutes later I receive a call and an email from Cody Varga and I am getting hooked up with the demos of the 699...the 699 Pro...and the 699 Pro U.

Wow!  Never experienced customer service like this.

I hope the demos work for me because...if they do...I will be ordering a complete set and supporting Sub 70 forever.

I'm not a "playa" either but felt the same with a must have of a thin top line.    I demoed the 639CBs last fall, and asked Cody about why the TAIII demos only came in a stiff shaft.   He sent out the demo set of the TAIII irons and I immediately fell in love with those clubs after hitting them.   I had an in person fitting with Jason and he said why do you want the TAIII ,  he then had me hit them and said that with the regular shaft TT105 dynamic gold I should be good.    I've been using them all winter on a golf simulator league here in west suburbs of Chicago with really good consistent results.   Plan to get outside to try them before my first go at the Golf week Senior Amateur   https://www.senioramateurgolftour.net/default.aspx

Have to wait for them hit Sub70 Europe but giving some serious consideration to the 659 TC Forged. 

Hoping to snag them in black with the blacked out KBS lite. 

Have to give props to @GolfSub70 for providing us leftys with a great Line up. I can remember not too long ago asking for some more lefty love and they have certainly come through.

Not sure if this is the right spot, feel free to move if I’m posting in the wrong thread. 
 

this is about the 5 & 7 fairway woods I bought for my wife. We were plying in AZ this last week and she wanted me to let the awesome folks at Sub70 know she loves them. She is hitting her 5 wood almost as fair and more accurate that her driver. She absolutely loves the 7 wood. It’s her go to club rather than her 6H or 4H. 
 

I can’t thank the Sub70 people enough as my wife is loving golf more and more which makes it easier for me to get out and play as well. Selfish I know, but happy wife more golf.
