  1. For me going heavier had more negative consequences then going lighter. I have a smooth swing, so heavier makes me feel like I have to swing harder and messes up my tempo and causes the flips. Also end of round on a hot day does effect me with heavier shafts. Lighter I go I can focus on no tension in the grip or shoulders and just swing the club. I have settled with the modus 120 (114g) and is that sweet spot for me. 120 g too heavy, 95 g just feels a little too light but I could certainly play it.
  2. My friend had his scotty stolen at a private club... that just irked me to all end. Another friend had a different putter and wedge taken out of bag at another semi private club. These people need to be found and banned from playing golf at any level. And get a wooppin imho. Nothing is worse in life then a thief we need much stricter laws for these people. Sorry end of rant. I put a seemore putter cover on my scotty LOL. If any of you own a boat outboard it's a similar thing, if you own a yamaha chances are someone is going to steal it and send it to South America. (No joke it happened to me) On my next boat I went with a different motor brand and nobody cares about it. Out of site out of mind works best. Crowded tournament take extra precautions compared to your regular foursome or club experience.
  3. Similar to you playing off a 5-6 hdcp with the 699 pros and really like them. I too had a "best" with these irons which was hitting every single green in reg. on the front 9 (9/9). Now before you think I went low, think again, sadly I believe I only shot -1 on that front because the putter was ice cold but that's not the point. The point is the irons are solid choice. Overall, looking at my stats I have had more double digit GIR rounds with these irons then before. (I'm up almost 2 GIR's per round on average with these clubs vs previous.) That is proof in the pudding right there. Highly recommend the set GW (50*) that thing is automatic green for me really and has helped my stats. The other one is hitting more greens with long irons and hybrids. And the big thing is catching one off the toe I still have chance hitting green versus ending up short greenside/bunker. *disclaimer, although I think the 699 pro is solid on all aspects like distance, forgiveness, sole interaction. I have to give some credit to the Modus 120 S shaft that I lucked into and think fits my swing perfectly as well. Bottom line if you don't want to spend $1500+ on a new set of clubs look in to the Sub 70 line up. Check out the sub70 thread on here for some reviews and also the TXG you tube testing of them with good results.

    Go on srixons website and compare the specifications of the ZX5 vs the 699 pros and you might be surprised in the similarity size wise. But yeah one is foam filled and the other is a multi piece club not a true forging. I always have liked the srixon 5 series of clubs.

    Someone help me pick out a 54* wedge, JB vs 286. This is my current set up: 50*-699 Pro-Full shots only 54* - PING Glide 2.0 SS (Standard Sole) 12* bounce - I used it for full shots & 3/4 shots mainly and some pitch and runs when I have lots of green. I would say square face shots to every so slightly open face shots. 58*- JB Wedge 12 * bounce. -my greenside club 99% time or shots under 80 yards. OK so the 54* PING performs pretty well to be honest but the feel is not good and has a very hollow sound at impact it is quite odd not especially comparing to the buttery soft JB wedge. So that is why I am looking to change out the 54* to a sub 70 model. The PING does seem more compact then the JB wedge. The JB 54* has 10* bounce, the 286 54* has 12* bounce. Has anyone put up comparison pictures yet? Any suggestions based on how I use the 54* from above?

    Go 699 pro GAP wedge at 50 if you will use it as a full shot, or maybe 3/4 shot club. It will be perfect for that and be more forgiving then blade wedge style. Then if you go something like 54*/58* or 56/60 or 55/60 in whatever combo you like after that you will have all shots covered.

    @LHgolf4 Hey can you snap some more address pics with a ball of that putter it looks sweet! Looking forward to a review if you can too.
  9. Nice Solid write up, 10/10 on your review lay out. Sub70 is a solid company. I'm also a ~5ish hdcp and have the 699 pros. Perhaps a tad larger then a blade iron for some, but very similar to the popular 790 TM irons. I find the 699 pros to be very forgiving and consistent with distances for me anyways. Bonus is on those off days like you I can come inside and get toe strikes and I'm not punished much. I get that some people want blades or player CB's but I suggest swallowing that pride and trying a more forgiving iron. This happens a lot but for example I guy I played with last weekend had these nice titleist blades and could barely hit a green even after hitting monster drives all day. He tried one of mine and goes "o wow this look big I could never play these".... Hey its your score not mine.
  10. Did you get fit? Would love to hear more details on the process and what kind of grinds or choices you went with.

    Same here I have mentioned before. Went Modus 120 stiff in my 699 pros 5-GW, and in my wedges now and best decision really keeps the feel cohesive. I always hated having a suddenly heavy wedge in my hand or something that felt different.

    Great first outing! After going modus in my irons set I attempted to go Modus 120 in my wedges and so glad that I did. Very nice feel on the wedge on full shots and especially 1/2 and 3/4.
  13. Impact repeatability on the center of the clubface improves up to 51% Sub 70 699 pro irons, Modus 120 Stiff, 5-AW
  14. I was lucky to do a testing on the Regio B+ that is a Nippon product designed in the woods for 120 Modus users. Check out my review. Very good results. On other threads, people have had success with more of a 'blueboard' type profile.

    699 pro irons with Modus 120 stiff shafts. For me best shaft I have ever played and good combo with iron head. These irons are really forgiving and fun to play. I have the 939x hybrid in 3 (18*) and 4 (21*) with UST proforce V2 85 stiff shaft. UST website says a mid to high launch, which may be tru, but for me the ball comes out low-mid with both hybrids. I'd be curious if anyone else plays this combo on here and what they think of the launch height. I tend to play my hybrids more middle stance and perhaps that lowers launch a touch but I have never moon shot one of these hybrids before .

    Join the club my friend. My Sub70s outperformed again...Did not swing a club for 3 weeks and went out cold for a quick 9 last Friday. Driver was not good and I landed in 2 fairway bunkers, the water, and the rough. I think I hit one FIR on the front. BUT I only missed 1 GIR. And that is because I hit my hybrid over the green into the wind on a par 3. The hybrids for me launch low which can be good and bad. I still get plenty of spin on the ball but need to adjust for windage better. (Or maybe move ball up a little bit in stance for higher shot) My irons are just point and shoot and very consistent on the yardages. Good into the wind. Very forgiving.
  17. I have the Modus 120 in 5 iron thru GW, SW, and LW as well. I really like the consistency across the board for one and I really like the feel of the shaft and it has helped my wedge game especially on those partial shots. If anything negative my LW might feel a little light but I got used to it quickly (I have not checked the SW on it yet)

    I'm hitting more GIRs then ever if that says anything. These hollow clubs are simply more forgiving around the face. I have had a few fliers but out of flier lies. Meaning, in the rough with ball sitting up a little, ball catches a little high on face with some grass between face and ball, ball launches higher and with less spin so it goes farther.

    Love it man, I did the same thing after watching Peter Fynch guy test the JB wedges, snap ordered real quick. That TAIII review TXG was awesome so report back your findings. Hopefully you stripe the 5 iron like the TXG guy did.
  20. My first outing was interesting with this putter. Made a birdie on #1, proceeded to hit every GIR on the front 9 and 6/9 on the back so I had a lot of good looks. I Made 2 other birdie putts and peppered the hole all day just didn't have many putts drop. Very stable putter. Sounds is a little pingy and I have to get used to alignment aid vs just 1 line. But overall it's a solid putter for sure and forgiving. I never had a black putter before and really like the contrast and no glare.

    It's not as easy to open up say like a PM grind. But it does open up easier then my Glide 2.0 SS because the sub70 has a little more heel relief on it. For slightly open face shots I'm finding it easier to hit higher shots then my glide around the green for sure. I struggled a little with the Glide and an open face. I have only hit a few bunker shots in really fluffy sand and they came out nice and easy so can't comment too much yet.

    Check out my post on this thread made on May 3rd, a few pics comparing to my Glide 2.0s there.
  23. It has been years since I have felt 100% confident in my wedge game. Recently the Glide 2.0 54* SS has been a great full shot wedge and chipping wedge. Around the green my favorite was the Scratch SFU grind in 58*. What is similar to that nowadays? (High bounce, aggressive heel relief)

    I have never hit the forged irons. But here is the JB wedge RAW after 1 range session and 1 round. Also next pics are my PW. Normal at address you cant see the marks but if I tilted it in good lighting to shine off the marks you can see the other pics.
