I would assume the 639 and 699 irons are also in the testing? Players irons and players distance maybe? 
MGS listed the clubs they need to buy from the manufacturers that did not participate, but they don't list the clubs they got from the companies that do. It would be nice to see which set of irons/putters,etc. were sent in, since most OEM's don't send in the entire line.

I don’t know everything that was provided by the manufacturers unless I ask or by looking through the lineup of clubs that are laying around. Since players and players distance testing hasn’t started, They are still in the storage area. I mostly look at the putters so I have a pretty good idea of what has been provided in that area.

Generally manufacturers send stuff from their new line. Some send more others send less, they work with Sam to figure it out. Manufacturers release schedules and MGS deadlines also influence what can be in the testing.

The Sub70 person that posts can probably answer the question on what was provided better than I can.

The 699 and 639 irons were submitted.  My understanding is that we also submitted fairway woods, hybrids and wedges.  Not sure on putters.  We're definitely looking forward to the upcoming results and think that given the right specs/shafts the clubs perform similarly to anything else out there.

I am pretty familiar with the putters in the test and there weren't any sub70 putters.

Happy to hear you are liking them.  Your "after 8 rounds" comment made me want to throw my bag on my back and start walking south though.

639 CB 7 iron....

 

One word: wow.

 

I got to hit balls at the range and the club was great! Great feel, consistency, FORGIVENESS, and nice flight window! Really nice! I was shocked at how forgiving they are, and I was hitting center-of-face 90% of the time. Really nice. I just kept saying to myself, “Dang, this club is straight!”

I emailed Jason and told him that at address, the offset, and shape of the club remind me a lot of the MacGregor VIP 7 iron blade I have!

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 profile but a little more forgiving.

It would be quite a shock to the system to switch to these from my G700s.

But wowsers it might still be worth it 🙂

I'm still sure the MBs are the right iron for me, but man... A blade with a touch of forgiveness???

It would make for the ultimate blended set if you did bring them next year!

I have a full set of the MacGregor 1025M Tourney VIP clubs.  They are IMO the easiest blade-type iron to hit... period! They have to be if I can hit them. 

I love playing them; it's just that I score better with today's SGI irons.

Move over PXG... there's a new sheriff in town 😄.  Hell, I'd be inclined to play the wrong clubs (for me) just to watch the starry eye glazes around the course.  Those are cool looking!

Hah! Thanks. At this point they're just a concept/prototype but hopefully they'll develop into another product line. We don't really want to come out with new products unless they offer something that we aren't already hitting...we think these could be good on their own or make for a good mixed set with either the MBs or CBs...but we'll see what happens

This kind of thinking is what the big boys don't get right now... Look at how many sets they have out there just hoping to land people on something. Instead, make fewer great clubs that fits more people. I think it was the Tour Edge video where the President said he didn't want to make the best driver on the market, he wanted the best driver for 80% of the market... Smart idea...

Love where you're headed with this... Waiting impatiently for those MBs!!! Come on summer!!!

So I know this is in the Shiny Metal/Irons sub, so first a question in that regard- is there a timeframe on demo availability for the Sub70 MB’s? Would it be the same as the general release?

but second, and not iron related, it seems that the only negatives I’ve heard regarding the Sub70 Drivers have been about sound/feel- has anyone tried hotmelting to quiet things down some? Is there an access point to add it?

Thanks for the message.  On the MBs, we should have them by June 1st.  I'm hoping we get some heads over for demo use before then and we'll definitely announce that via social media if they become available.

On the driver, it's really strange because we had 10+ people test the driver during development and had zero comments on the sound.  Most of that testing was done outdoors and we have noticed that it is higher pitched/louder in a smaller, indoor environment.  We've had several guys double check the sound against other driver heads outside...and they noted that it may be slightly higher pitched/louder than some heads...but it's similar to some other major OEM heads and isn't "Whoa that is loud".  As far as hot melt...that is definitely an option.  There are forward and rear weights that are removable so you could certainly mod it if you wanted to.

Try it against something loud, like the Wilson Triton or F5... Do some videos so people can hear them side by side. I know a guy that would be happy to make you a few videos...
