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. 11.4 , Portland OR

2. Titleist 712CB/MB combo, the 8 is an MB. Max carry is 160, I play it as the 145-150 club. 

Sub70 is a direct to consumer company, I know they made a hollow cavity injected iron that was ranked pretty highly in a MGS test. I actually have their cavity back on a short list when it’s time to upgrade. They also make forged wedges which I don’t see too many companies doing anymore, especially the more popular ones.

Definitely look forward to the reviews on this one. Been looking hard at Sub70 and NL for the next iron set. 

  1. Handicap and Location. 7HDCP    Gilbert, Arizona
  2. Current Irons and 8-iron distance: Srixon 785. 8 iron is 153 yards.
  3. What do you know about Sub70? DTC company that has really been making alot of noise lately on the golf forums I follow. Lots of praise for the product and service. Been to the website many times to check them out and look at specs. They certainly make some great looking clubs. I know there is also some sort of affiliation with Hurricane Golf which I have used many times over and always been satisfied with.

1. Handicap is 6.5 and currently play at Emerald Vale in Manton, Michigan

2. Currently play Taylormade P760s but am looking to move back to blades. Generally hit 8 iron 165 give or take 5.

3. I know they are a better price point but haven’t gained the market space like Ben Hogan. They look like cheap PXG clubs but perform about the same, or so I’ve read.

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?

 

I am a 13 handicap in Cleveland, Ohio

I’m a Scratch golfer in Tampa, FL. Played Collegiate Golf for a top 10 school and Mini-Tour Golf for 10 years. Currently play Mizuno MP69. I hit my 8 iron about 155 yards. All I know about Sub70 is that you’re a start up looking to deal directly with the consumer.  I have a few buddies who have your equipment and love them.

Honma TW737P with Vizard i60S; 8 iron distance 145

Know of Sub70 due to GolfWRX and mygolfspy. Have followed closely and ordered from other DTC brands like Hogan and PXG. Most impressed by the founder having such a direct role in customer service

Hi there!

My name is Blaine from Seattle, WA.

Hcp: 8.7 (West Seattle GC)

Irons: TaylorMade p790

8 iron carry: 145 yds

I have heard a little bit about Sub70 through this forum, and understand they carry a traditional look with modern feel and distance. I always enjoy new brands that are willing to take on the heavy hitters of golf equipment and would love to test out how they stack up!

1.  12.2 handicap, Wildwood, MO (no club membership, just play locally)

2. Titleist  690cb forged blades. Old school 20+yr old but great clubs. 8 iron distance 138-145

3. Been drooling over these irons for 4-5 months. Love the DTC model and the fact that a small company can have technology and craftsmanship that competes with the big boys and their seemingly unlimited R&D budgets. Clean lines, gorgeous look and from everything I've read, super customer oriented. Every review I've read has been stellar and that pretty much backs up my opinion that Sub70 has found a sweet spot for golfers that are sick of paying $1200 plus for big brand clubs. You better get ready to expand your output. It would be a pleasure to take these around to local courses and show them off.  

Old school all the way

Titleist 910 driver,  13 degree 910 3 wood that I can hit like a dream.

690cb forged irons that must be 20 years old and still going strong

Cleveland 588 bronze 52, 56, 60 degree wedges

Odyssey 2 ball putter(newer model but don't recall the exact one)

  1. Hcp 5.8, Roanoke,TX 
  2. Srixon Z Forged, 8I carry 165
  3. What do you know about Sub70? Just what I've read on the MGS website reviews and forums. Seem like a great small size company with some classic clubs.
