I commented on another post earlier, but since this seems to be the OFFICIAL Sub70 thread I'll comment here too.     I ordered my Sub70 clubs two weeks ago.  My current gamers are Cobra Forg

I've been looking at Sub 70 for about 6 months. Called Jason last Friday to inquire about why there was only 6-W and not 5-W in the 639CB on the website. He let me know that 3-5 heads were on the way.

I went with 699 Pro in the 5-8 and the 638CB in the 9 and W.    I also ordered a 699 Pro U 4 iron and a 939x 4 hybrid as well.  Once I get them and have some time with them I will post up a

I have the 699's with the Tour 90's. The weight feels fine to me. I think they swing weight out to D2 if I recall correctly.

Driver: Mizuno ST200G @ 9º w/ Aldila Rogue White 130 MSI 6s

Fairway: Callaway Mavrik 4W @ 16.5º w/ ProjectX Evenflow Black 7s

Hybrid: Titleist TS3 @ 19º (20º) w/ ProjectX Hzrdus Smoke Black 90s

Irons: Miura TC-201 (4-6); MB-101 (7-PW) w/ MCA MMT 105TX (ss*1)

Wedges: Artisan Raw @ 51º, 56º, 61º

Putter: Artisan 0117

Everything in my signature but driver and putter are new, took it all out today for my first round with the new Sub 70 clubs. For background, I can’t golf nearly as much as I’d like, probably twice a month. I typically shoot around 90, as I did today. Driver is 240-250 for me, 7 iron 150-155.

 

The irons are lovely. Well made and the shafts fit me well. Powerful high ball flight, straight and about 5 yards longer than the 714 AP1’s I came from. Very forgiving, nice cavity back there, and the sole is not egregiously wide. The offset is on the low side for GI clubs and I love this.

 

The wedges have a good feel to them and I attribute this to the shaft. Jason, the owner of the company, steered me to these shafts rather than the much heavier and stiffer off the rack wedge shafts I’ve always played. They are forged as well, but I’m not sure I’m good enough to realize this on the course. Wedges are really good around the green. I don’t hit many full shots with the SW and LW on the course, but on the range they dug a little more than I’m used to. This may be an adjustment to the new shafts, but the leading edge is also a little sharper than Vokeys, I think. The black finish is really good, reminds me of my old Cleveland’s black pearl finish. Looks great as it starts to wear.

 

Hybrid was good too. Pin high from 205 is fantastic for me too bad I missed the green 2 yards left! This is a great result for me no complaints. The hybrid and 5 wood are so classy great traditional looks without the flash, I love it! Very solid, sound is powerful too. I hit the 5 wood on the range well, right about 220 which is what I expect. Did not hit it on the course today. Probably should have as driver wasn’t great.

 

All in all, the Sub 70 clubs are great, they are performing well, and they are a super value. The demo program worked great, and I tried before I bought. Jason was super to work with and he handled a change in my order seamlessly. I cannot recommend this company enough! Maybe driver too someday...

Reviving this thread, I spoke with the guys there after the few new articles and reviews that came out about the 699 pros and am sold!!! They are awesome there and building to my specs and will have the 699 pros here shortly!!! I will leave a review of them on here, but so far one of the best companies I have ever worked with and they more then stand behind their clubs!!!

Nice! Jason is a good dude and fun to talk to. I have a 639 CB Black 5 iron on it's way with a S400 shaft... he and I went through the build for my entire set, but I haven't been willing to pull the trigger. My 699U 4 iron is awesome and my current set is missing a 5 iron, so I figured the 639 CB was a good place to start. $112 custom built . Not a bad deal.

I MIGHT one day go all Sub70 irons and wedges... I'm considering the hybrid, but hesitant, mostly because I don't like adjustable hosels in hybrids.

I recently ordered a 5 hybrid for my wife, she plays mens clubs so typical R flex, etc. She loves the club. I took it out for a couple rounds and the thing just rocks. So much so that I talked with Jason on the phone last night and ordered another one with slightly different specs. It is so much easier for me to hit than a 5 iron and better ball flight. Highly recommend the clubs and dealing with the company.

@myherobobhope, on the adjustable hossel, it doesn't adjust loft, just lie angle, really minimal adjustments.

It's 100% mental on my part, but the weight added to make a club "adjustable" is a sacrifice against performance... The bigger the club, the less it bothers me, but an adjustable hosel adds weight to the heel of the club... If my year goes as planned, I will fully dip my toes into the Sub70 club pool... I'm going to at least get a full set of 639s at some point this year. (combos, 5-7 in CB and 8-PW in MB)... I'll likely pull the trigger on wedges once I wear my current ones out (I haven't gotten to play much, so this is going to be longer)... and I might take a chance on the hybrid down the line.

I don't think my driver is going anywhere until I crack the face... 3 wood is always a toss up, but I'm more focused on the shaft options than the three wood head...

We're actually working on a "pro" hybrid that won't be adjustable for that exact reason. Our Pro fairway wood is non-adjustable as well. We've also got a new driver in the works. Both are probably 2021 releases at this point but we're working on improving and expanding our offerings!

I was just looking at the pro 3 wood... can I get one that sits a little open and a lower loft? I'd love it in 13.5-14 and a few degrees open.

They were and it's locked... They probably have messaged the winners and started the build process... We should probably see a review thread next week, would be my guess.

I'll toss up a 699 utility review and 5 iron review as soon as I get the 5 iron. It might also be good if I get to play some golf... If all goes according to plan, I go back to the hole that convinced me I needed a 5 iron and see how the 639 performs on it. My mini review of the 699 is I like it a lot. Feel great, good launch and looks good. They built it to my specs and it was a great value. I've hit most other utility irons, the Ping felt hollow, and everything else felt thick.. 699 is a good balance... but I'm also very partial to the shaft. Proforce V2 is always a winner for me.

I'm sure we can measure the heads we have and try to find something that works. I would just contact Jason at Jason@Golfub70.com or 815-621-3556 if you're looking for that. Thanks!

Yep! Two guys have full custom built 639 iron sets heading their way. It'll be great to get their feedback! I'm a longtime WRX'er so I definitely wanted to get involved with the WRX community

I’ll harass Jason when I’m ready to pull the trigger... paid for a five iron last night and will hopefully complete the set this month... three wood isn’t a big club for me, so it can wait.

I purchased the 699's this winter and couldn't be happier with the purchase. Sub 70 is really great to work with, they have a great demo program. They also have a very fair trade in program. I traded in my old set of irons and received a fair price. I have only been able to get out with the new irons about 6-8 times due to suffering a bad bout of Covid-19 which cost me almost three months off of the golf course. I am slowly starting to get back out and getting my swing back. I highly recommend Sub 70 - great product - great prices.

I currently have demo 6,9 irons of the Sub70 639CB and Ben Hogan PTxPro for a miniature side-by-side contest for the right to replace my much-loved set of Titleist 735.CM irons. I have hit both on the range and played 9 holes to compare real on-course performance. Initial observations / range: Both have top lines that are quite a bit thicker than my eye is used to, but the 639CBs have a more squared-off toe that frames the ball really nicely - you cannot tell this in any online review photos I have seen. I personally like this quite a bit as it enforces thoughts of confidence and power. The 639CB cavity is quite deep and the sole is quite thick, but these are both 100% hidden at address. I personally am not a huge fan of how they look in the bag, but at the end of the day who cares? The back of the iron looks sharp to me though. After playing one of the OG blended iron sets for over a decade, I am planning to move to a full set of forged Players CB irons and these match my expectations perfectly - straight and powerful default flight with the ability to control traj and shape as needed, plus added forgiveness. Hitting half-9i shots to the 75y marker on the range was a bit of a revelation with the 639CB. High/low/side-spin shots all felt solid with just enough ball tilt to know there was spin. Very cool for a CB. On-course: The real difference between the 639CB and PTxPro is the feel - the single forging 639CB just feels more solid than the multi-piece PTxPro. I realize that not everyone will agree with that, but I swear I feel a difference. Mis-hits retain more distance than my old blended set, especially so for the 9 iron. The PTxPro does really well on thin strikes, while 639CB does well on toe-side strikes. Unfortunately I can’t plan mis-hits well enough to draw better conclusions yet. I don’t take very deep divots but turf interactions was great for me - the leading edge got in and out just fine. The 40 degree 639CB 9 iron did not fly as far as I might have guessed but I am chalking this up to the KBS Tour S shaft, which is different from my normal DG S300 (considering going stiffer, not the other way). Overall: I am absolutely planning to buy a set of 639CB’s as soon as (a) my wife gives me approval and (b) I get properly fit for iron shafts. I like the slightly lighter KBS Tour shaft but I feel like I was overpowering it just a bit, especially the 9i. FWIW I really like the PTxPro’s as well - the script text and sunburst art are just gorgeous. But the 639CB’s single-piece forging and squared toe line just tips the scales enough in that direction.Photos: will upload in a follow-up post.

You can get s400 shafts from sub70... highly recommend talking to Jason for options... he knows his stuff, and he knows what options they have that aren’t on the site... but if you want stiffer than s300 and don’t want x100, the s400 are great. Love mine.

You can pick up a 699u for $100 bucks :-)

Well worth it.

Edit to add: I haven't gotten a commission check from Sub70 for my constant pimping... (yet)

I love their utility iron, but if you already have a utility iron you like it’s not a must have.
