TESTERS ANNOUNCED! Sub 70 699 Pro Irons


Recommended Posts

1. I'm a 22 handicap living in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

 

2. My current irons are the Cleveland CBX launchers and my 8 iron (which is very strong lofted to the point of being a 7 iron with identity issues) carries ~150 and runs out an extra 5 to 10 yards depending on slope, surface, and how vindictive it's feeling. 

 

3. Quite a bit. I have been keeping track of Sub 70 since it was founded. As a fan of Tour Edge and other 'uniqie' business strategies in golf, I loved the idea of Sub 70 offering custom irons at half the price. Similarly, I love their static fitting tool. Even if it misses the mark slightly with some, being able to know that more likely than not your irons need to be a degree flat or you need midsize grips goes a long way for confidence. 

It's been fun listening to interviews with the founder, product testers, and reviewers. And it's refreshing to hear the old Tour Edge pitch of "we'll keep costs down by not paying tour players" with the extra Sub 70 pitch of "unless there's a major game breaking change in the tech, we're not going to release something new just for the sake of releasing something new."

 

And it doesn't hurt that the clubs are gorgeous. 😉

Rag tag bag, but it does the job.

Testers Announced! Reviewing the Sub 70 699 Pro irons will be: @Smellis745 @Tom the Golf Nut @GolfSpy MPR Reviews coming soon! _______________________________

Testers Announced! I'm thinking that Sub 70, as a company, is like America and Alexander Hamilton: young, scrappy, and hungry. And I'm also thinking that with a good iron in my hand,

Thanks everyone. I just did the happy dance around my office! ( At Work ). Ok i did get some strange looks......  I will put these to the test for sure!

Baltimore, MD, 12.6 index. 
ping i20’s 145 8 iron 

sub 70 is so sick. I’ve had these in my cart for many months for a complete overhaul but keep chickening out. The Matte black is so pure.

Callaway RazrX muscleback

8 iron -160 summer - 154 winter.  


Unfamiliar with the brand.  Tired of the same brands recreating the same thing with lower lofts and losing feel.

14 hcp, Plainfield, IL

Currently playing Ben Hogan Edge irons- 8 iron 140 yds

Bought the driving iron from Sub 70 a few months ago and loved it! Highly considering these irons to possibly kick my Hogan’s out of the bag. Also looking to support a local Midwest company that so far has been one of the most impressive purchase experiences I’ve had in golf. It’s going to take a lot to move my current irons out, and I’m interested to see if these have what it takes.

Ping g410, 8 Iron- 174

I know that sub 70 offers great customer service, with their 60 day guarantee as well as everything is custom built. I am actually going to buy one of the new staff bags as they are super cool and look to be great quality

1. 6.2 Handi. Duluth, MN

2. 716 Titleist CB’s. 8-iron distance - 165 yds

3. I have never heard of Sub70, so that’s what makes it exciting. If they have a further flight than my current set then it’s worth looking into. I like the looks of them and would love the opportunity to try them out and get my opinion out there.

pxg 8 iron- 169

 

I’ve honestly only heard of them a few times. I don’t know much, if anything about the company besides the fact they are a dtc company. Seems like they make a legit product. Would love to test them against my current set.

1. 6.9, Madison, CT

2. 2011 TM MC (the Danny Berger’s) - 165 8 iron

3. Sub70 has always jumped out as the best lower cost DTC option but I’ve always been a bit skeptical of ordering clubs untested online. After hearing your comments on the pod about how accessible and customer centric they are, I would love to try them.
