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!

  1. Currently a 4.3. Pittsburgh, PA
  2. Adams MB2- Stock 8 iron is around 145
  3. I have just started digging into them the last few months, because of more time. First thoughts is they are gorgeous. Especially the 699 Pro. 

Thanks for the opportunity. I will happily review these head to head with my irons. Might even give them a run in the World Am this year.

A product with solid value never goes out of style.

Couple that with exceptional customer service, and it's an attractive package for golfers who aren't necessarily looking to take out a second mortgage to purchase some golf equipment.

That's the basic premise of Jason Hiland's company, Sub 70, that leverages a factory-direct model to keep help keep costs low.

What about performance? Well, in 2019, the Sub 70 699 iron model finished sixth in the Players Distance category of Most Wanted testing. That might not sound like much until you consider it finished ahead of Callaway, PING and Titleist. That’s an accolade worthy of some refrigerator space.

For 2020, the 699 Pro iron features a thinner topline, less offset, and a black, Tour PVD finish.

 

This opportunity is open to right-handed golfers residing in the United States. If interested, reply to this thread with the following information:

  1. Handicap and Location
  2. Current Irons and 8-iron distance
  3. What do you know about Sub70?

1. Handicap...18

2. Calloway X 18. 8 iron goes 150

3. Never heard of until today. But they look fantastic

1. I’m a 2.3 handicap from Milwaukee, WI

2. I play my 8-iron 180 and have Taylormade P790’s. 

3. I have only seen a few things from Sub70. They seem like a great up and coming company. I prefer to play blades because of the workability of the irons. These irons seem like they’d be a great set to work on moving the ball left and right, as well as launch angle and spin control.

9.1 - Lemoore, CA

Mizuno MP-20 MMC  150 yards

i really haven’t heard much about these irons which would make this a great testing experience for me by having an uninformed opinion before hand.

1. 6 handicap.  61 year old retiree in Nebraska

2.  Purchased ping i 500 irons in the last month after a thorough fitting and evaluation process with our local pro at Pete Dye home course.  Switched to these from six year old AP2 irons

3. Respectfully, I’ve never heard of these irons but would be willing to give them a complete test with frequent use on the course with detailed feedback.  I enjoy trying different things.

I didn't know anything about the Sub70 prior to reading this. I'm currently playing TM ME with a composite shaft. I struggled with Calloway Apex 16 forged irons for a while.. prior to that were Mizuno JPXs which I liked and still have.

  1. 3.7 Index - Atlanta Athletic Club, Atlanta, GA
  2. Ping i210 4-U irons, Blue Dot, Standard loft/length, Glide 2.0 Stealth 56 and 60 degree wedges - 8i distance = 165 yards
  3. I know nothing about these irons and intrigued by your article and review of the clubs

I am a 3.7 Index playing out of the Atlanta Athletic club. I can utilize our Trackman systems and video recordings to compare practice results. I also have Arccos tabs on my irons and can add that to these clubs for comparative analysis. With Bryson's recurring success and research into Hogan and Jones, I want to investigate a single length club methodology. Sub70 may be a good consideration to test the single length model and compare with my current Ping irons.

Ping 410 Driver 9 degree
410 3-W, i500 2i, 3i, i2010 4-W,U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth, 52, 60
