Thanks for the message!

The 286 Series is an update to our previous Forged Series, with a straighter leading edge compared to the original model. They're a bit more rounded to the front edge compared to the JB to let it glide a bit more than dig in. Very forgiving, super easy to hit in terms of a forged wedge. This should be closer in comparison to Cleveland's 588 series wedges than our JB Wedges will be.

The JB Wedge is more of our "Tour Preferred" wedge, and features more heel relief, more of a straight leading edge, and little less of a rounded sole. These wedges are designed for golfers that want their wedge to sit a bit tighter when it’s a straight on shot, while offering workability by using the bounce. This is very comparable to Vokey SM8 M Grind.

These videos might help provide further context as well...

Sure, come into a thread and actually explain things about the clubs that you make instead of relying on my vague descriptions and terrible pictures...

This whole thread is great to read. I’m local to Sub70 and am heading there this week to look at hybrids. All this talk has me thinking other possibilities as well. Glad everyone is really digging these and makes me feel more comfortable looking at them. 

Update. What an experience hitting and getting fitted with Sub70. Can’t recommend them enough. Went in with one thing in my head and what I wanted. Talking through everything with Dan and having him look at and understand my swing and it’s faults I walked out of there with a 699 Pro U 3 iron getting made. I felt comfortable and they weren’t there to upsell or put me in something that doesn’t make sense just because I thought I needed it. First Sub70 club coming into the bag soon and definitely won’t be the last.

Glad you had a good experience. Been on the fence to add their utility to then swap with their 3H depending on the day. Had a pxg 2i that I was ok with so a utility kind of makes me hesitant to use if needed from the deck. Let us know how it works in play for you!

Thank you much for the additional info @GolfSub70! Really making a good case at me getting one of those JB wedges now, 3 utility is on its way to me, but may have make another order here very soon! Thanks again!

I hit the 17* 2 iron 699U off the deck all time, granted it is the more forgiving model, but I hardly ever mishit it, half the time I'd rather try to pinch a really hard of those over a 3 wood into some par 5's.

I just ordered a 286 at 52° and a JB at 56°. I'm just replacing the 56° original Sub70 with these. The original is the best wedge I've ever used. I Briefly tried the Kirklands, and some Mac Daddy's this year, they both went right back the the store. Sub70 for me.

I'm really happy with the 286 and JB combo... I feel like it gives me tons of options around the green... I like the Sub70 wedges, I don't like my current wedge game!

Just a quick follow up: I purchased a set of 699 pro & 939 hybrids back in November. The irons were a fantastic looking set with minimal offset & a nice looking top line, by no means were they game improvement looking irons, but they inspired confidence & distance. 
My only issue with them at times was that I’m a digger with my swing & I seemed to hit the short irons fat a few to many times. 
Because of that, I had a friend who loved the look of the 699 pro’s & purchased them from me.

I have since purchased a set of 639 CB irons & absolutely love them. They have better turf interaction for my swing. 
I have also purchased 3 & 5 pro fairway woods, 699 pro utility, & set of the JB wedges (probably my favorite sub 70 clubs I have)! 
I also have 2 of their 939 X hybrids, I have always struggled hitting hybrids but hit these better than any hybrid I’ve ever tried. I’m not sure if I’ll play them much because I love the 699 pro utility & it’s versatility & length!

I have no regrets in purchasing & playing Sub 70 golf equipment (everything but driver & putter is Sub 70)! They will be in my bag for a long time, you can’t beat the price, quality, & customer service! A few friends I play with often says repeatedly every Sub 70 club I have just sounds solid at impact & produces a very penetrating ball flight! 

If you’re considering Sub 70, I highly recommend them. I’ve played almost all the major brands over the years & Sub 70 is second to none.

Took my new 699 Pro's out onto the course for the first time yesterday. Loved them. Feels like the ball flies off the face, and my ball flight looks a lot better as well, was very impressed. Distance was good, but the main thing was they are still forgiving. My best shot all day in terms of where the ball ended up was actually one of my worst strikes, caught it out of the toe but it still flew and stopped a foot from the pin. 

Great clubs, and would recommend people check them out.

It’s fine, my visor needs have been met for this month.

I don’t think there is a ton of difference, the sole grind and bounce options are different... I like the classic sole on the 286 for standard shots and the more aggressive grind on the jb for opening it up and playing more flop shots.

I'm using the 58* JB low bounce for full shots now and really enjoying it.  As I noted in another post above, once the course softens up, might need to go to a higher bounce wedge but for now, the JB is a great wedge.  Was playing Vokey SM8 previously and still have the 54* vokey in the bag.  It's higher bounce so I've got choices now.

Define demanding. They aren't blades or muscle backs... I've bounce around from a 4-15 handicap over the past 20 years, and played Taylor Made Burners for the majority of it... These are as forgiving as those and feel 10x better. I'm currently playing Adams CMBs (basically cavity backs with tungsten in the toe) and find them slightly more foriving than the 639 CB (I have the 5 iron) but it's not a TON different... The 699s are definitely more forgiving... I mishit my 699U 4 iron on Saturday and ended up 10 yards short when I expected to be 40 yards short... 

To me, that's the main difference... massive mishits aren't as punished with the 699s... slight mishits aren't dead with either... 

I had planned on getting a mixed set of the CBs and MBs at one point, but 2020 was a mess... I'm enjoying my (new to me) CMBs right now... maybe by the time I wear them out Sub70 will have a tungsten toe CB offering.
