Sub70 golf

The 3h I tested last year is still a beast of a club. Hit it so well yesterday! It confirmed me wanting to get a 2h with the same shaft in it

Not sure if this necessarily tracks in shiny metal forum, but as far as recent sub70 purchases, I just picked up the new 949x fairway wood and it is perhaps one of the best 3 woods I've ever hit right out of the bag...no warm up to test and hit 5/5 fairways with it. Honestly feels like it wants to go only straight. I was always in the category of why hit 3 wood when it's not that much straighter than my driver anyways; but this one feels like it actually fits the mold of fairway finder. Haven't had extensive use off the deck yet to grade it in that aspect.

It's also far better looking than the website and feels spectacular; hearkens back to some of the callaway xhot fairways in terms of sound and feel: very much that muted "wood" like feel and "thwack" sound, alternative to tinnier metal on the other side of the spectrum.

Also doesn't hurt when, after an upcharge shaft, it's still 50$ cheaper than the big guys.

939 or Pro. Which shaft?

I have the Pro with the Evenflow Riptide 6.0, only hit maybe 10 times if you're interested.

I’d get a new pro to match what I tested last year. I have the 6.0 80g in mine

Yes he does.  I've talked with him twice during my new iron and shaft journey.  He calls me back on a Sunday after being out with the family.... WHAT???.... who does that?  👏 Digging that studio set-up!! Also love his comment "golf's all about how good you miss it" 👍.

Why did you get 6.0? Don’t you normally play a softer shaft than that? I am interested I’ll let you know.

I've only had a few of chances to try it out off the deck in round, but for me it's been extremely easy to elevate while not spinning like crazy. It almost feels like I can take the same swing as off the tee and it performs exactly the same.

Also worth noting that I've kept the weights in the head standard (9g in back and 9g in heel position) ; they provide an additional 6g and 12g weight so there should be room to adjust to make it easier to get up off the deck.

I play 6.0 in everything, that's what I was fitted into. No worries, it'll be hanging out doing nothing.

So.....I had been reading all of the Sub 70 info and it got my interest. I talked with Jason Hiland and he made recommendations based off of my very recent (like two days earlier) dynamic Ping fitting. Those fitting numbers let Jason advise me on what would work best from the Sub 70 lineup....and it saved me an 8 hour drive from having to physically go to Sub 70's headquarters for a fitting. Jason connected me with Cody Varga and we were off to the races. I worked with Cody over the course of a few weeks, going through the demo process, getting everything down to an order....then I just had to sell some of my own clubs to help offset the cost. Once I sold my clubs....I placed my order. The beautiful Sub 70 box showed up yesterday. Oh my....was my first thought. They were gorgeous...until I took the plastic off of the club heads and realized that the heads were the satin finish...and not the black finish that I had planned on, all along. I went back and looked through my email traffic with Cody and discovered that...early on...I did state that I wanted the black heads. But...that was in an email weeks ago. In my final email...with my order specs...I had neglected to specify the black finish on the heads. I emailed Cody and was fully transparent, acknowledging that the mistake was on my end, but would there be any way to send the clubs back and have the black heads installed. Cody immediately responded and actually said that it was his fault for not confirming the finish and that he would send me a return shipping label and correct the error. THE ERROR WAS NOT CODY'S FAULT...IT WAS SQUARELY ON MY SHOULDERS. So...I will have to wait a few more weeks before hitting my clubs...but that is my only penance for my lack of attention to detail. I am now a Sub 70 fanboy for life. Their customer service is top notch. Thank you Cody and Jason for all that you do.
