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.  

I'm pretty sold on the concept of a high bounce sand wedge and a low bounce lob wedge... I don't always think through which bounce I need for the shot, but it's been interesting to think about my wedges as more than just the loft on the club... I've been grinding my short game due to a back injury, so I've spent way too much time thinking about this stuff.

They’re solid! Long, forgiving for a pro model & easy to hit & launch into the air off the turf. I prefer the 5 wood over the hybrid.

I watched this and it only makes me want the TAIII irons even more. They really seemed to perform well and they seemed to sound a bit better as well. Am I good enough to play them probably not but we all know that's not going to stop the dreaming.

They aren't that bad and are fairly forgiving. I have been surprised by their performance in the players iron testing.   In my opinion just as good as anything else in the test.

Ok everyone needs to stop this I have already wondered how much my irons might sell for (not enough got some nice dings in them) many times today.

I know I'm late to this post, but my son has had the 939x hybrid and fairway for 6+ months and they perform as good as any other properly fit hybrid/fairway, but at a much lower cost.  The paint on the soles has worn faster than big OEM clubs, but it's not something you see at address or has any role in performance.  We may pick up a 4h or 4 utility for him in the near future.

I like the look of 699 irons, but they aren't the style iron I prefer to play and I can't stand the fish scale milling on all the others.  It looks especially bad to me when on the same head as straight milled lines.

I have one range session and one round of golf with my new Sub 70 3+ wood. I want to take it to Toptracer to compare to my Ping driver, but from feel on the course, I was not losing much when pulling the 3 wood. That has always been my "fairway finder"...

I ordered a Hybrid 6 iron, to fill in a gap, so a second Sub 70 is on the way...

As documented elsewhere on the forum (What did you practice today thread), I have developed issues swinging my irons over the past few weeks and, as luck would have it, a bit before my Sub 70 demo clubs arrived.  A few days ago, Sub 70 sent me an email with my the UPS label for returning the demo clubs and to check in with how I liked them. I sent Sub 70 a note this morning noting that I would be sending them back today/tomorrow but would likely demo them again once I had semblance of decent form once again.  Sub 70 responded offering to let me keep the clubs for a bit longer to continue to get a feel for them.  The Sub 70 customer experience continues to be exceptional. Thank you Sub 70!

I'd like to throw in my recent and previous experiences. I've been gaming the set of 699 pros for a few months now. I love them. They are definitely in the "power bat" variety of irons. They come out hot and high and won't spin a ton. Any iron like this will definitely net you some massive fliers from the rough, so you need to learn how they react and actually club down occasionally in thicker rough. I can't see doing better for the money. I originally got the 4-AW but removed the AW and replaced it. The shape and type of iron wasn't working well for me in a 50 degree. I gave it to a buddy and it's now his favorite club for what that's worth. 

I just received the 004 putter. I was previously gaming the MGS favorite Tommy Armour Impact original and was looking for a nicer version of that putter. That's exactly how I'd describe the 004. The TA seemed to perform pretty well for me, but it was lacking the higher end feel. The 004 is wonderful. It came with 4 sets of weights, an adjustment tool, and a nice and unique looking head cover (Velcro unfortunately). With my 30 or so living room putts, I can tell I will love it. 

It was a bit of a leap of faith, though. It's really hard to even find an accurate image of what their putters will look like. The stock photos from the website aren't great. I wasn't really sure what I was even getting. Of course, like most experiences with Sub 70, they beat your expectations by a mile. I simultaneously hate that I can't find information and love that I discovered a hidden gem. It sounds like they are doing incredibly well with their minimal marketing and I totally respect that, but I wish there were some actual images next to a golf ball to look at. 

My next leap of faith is the pro 13 degree 3 wood that will (hopefully) replace my driver altogether. I already tee my 16.5 degree TM m4 HL 3 wood on nearly every hole. I'm hoping to hit some absolute bullets with this one. The deals they have are just insane. The shaft they offer would literally cost $75+ and I paid $154 for an entire new wood. I was looking at used 3+ woods on ebay for more and thought why not go with Sub 70 again? 

Unfortunately, their incredible reputation and growing popularity means we all don't get that short turnaround time anymore. I'm expecting to wait 3+ weeks for this club. I'm also expecting to absolutely love it.

Just ordered a demo of the 699's. Can't wait.  A buddy of my is letting use his PXG's 0211's. I hit those yesterday along with my current set of XHot's. Didn't notice much of difference and actually preferred my Xhots over the PXG's.  I'll hit them both again, but really looking forward to getting the Sub 70's. 

I spoke to Mark from Sub 70 and he was great, answered all my "what if" questions. I haven't hit these clubs yet and they are the front runner new sticks.

curious how they work for you. I like my 0211s (2019 version) now that my swing has gotten better but now I am not holding greens as well with the dry conditions and more pured shots.

So my friend who let me use these bought a set Srixon's for the same reason you stated. 

 

The 0211s are ok but just don't feel right to me.
