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!

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.

  1. 13 Handicap from Massachusetts
  2. MP18 MMC ,8i carry 152
  3. What do you know about Sub70? - I know very little. I am aware that they earn the best value in many MGS test as the DTC model gives them much less publicity. I would love to test and learn more about the brand.

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

 

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
