Sub 70 Clubs

anyone know how their fairways perform? Curious if the 7w in this preorder would be more forgiving than my UW, which I like but don't love.

I played a 949X 4w for the last 2 years. Very solid club, looks great, great sound, very long. A little too closed at address for my taste, and a tendency to go right (for me). I struggled when I wanted to turn it over off the tee.

I was going to buy a 949X 7 wood, but got a great deal on a Honma TW747 7 wood. I liked it so much, I replaced my 949X 4w with a TW747 3HL.

I just saw the new Pro V2 last night, and if I was in the market for new fairways, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them.

Having said that, if you are looking for forgiveness, I'd look at the 949X 7 wood. While a 7 wood is inherently pretty forgiving, the 949X should be a little more forgiving, and have a higher ball flight.

I have two Sub 70 clubs: 009 Sycamore Mini putter and 699 Pro V2 utility iron (18°). Love both clubs, and fantastic value.

Just received a 699v2 utility 4 iron and a JB 58 FG in raw, excited to add these additions to my bag as it's mostly comprised of Sub70 products. I've been playing the OG 699 irons for the past 3 years and put the 949x 3 hybrid in the bag last year.

 

Love supporting these guys and got to know Jason pretty well over the years, fantastic company and they deserve all the success they've had.

Was at the Seventy last week for an iron fitting. Hopefully they come in next week with the weather being decent lately. I also got to try a new driver they are developing. Felt pretty nice. I’ll be interested in demoing the finished product when it comes out since next year is a driver year!

Has anyone had any experience hitting or getting fit for the new Sub70 Pro V2 fairway wood? Their website talks about dual face technology and the only Youtube review I have seen has positive things to say as well. Just wondering if anyone here has some more insight before I possibly pull the trigger on one to try this Spring.

Here's a review I just left on sub70's site, if it helps anyone.  Anyone else have an issue like this?

 

Purchased a 60*, Sub 70 JB Forged Wedge Raw with stock Lamkin Crossline 360 Standard Black grip, stock S300 shaft and stock length.  Swing weight as delivered was D0.  That does not work for me (or anybody, really) so I disassembled and weighed the head.  **The bare head weighed 295 grams.**  That is 9 grams light.  As a general rule, 2 grams of extra head weight yields 1 swing weight.  So if the head was as advertised at 304 grams. that would give ~D4.5 swing weight.  About right for a 60* wedge.  Thankfully I can (dis)assemble my own clubs and have brass tip weights, but I know I am in the minority.

A few years back I ordered JB raw 58 and mb irons. Wedge came at C8 irons at C9. I had asked for the heaviest heads they had available. Never hit them just pulled the shafts and sold the heads.

Were the clubs standard length?

Yes standard lengths and I don’t remember the head weights. The 58 degree was like 297-298 if I remember right

Any news you can offer?

Yes. I haven’t been able to play them much yet. Just a couple of range sessions, 2 sim rounds and only 1 outside round. Originally I was going to just reshaft my 739 irons I bought from Sub 70 just a few months after they opened for business. Even though they are 5 years old I hardly played them the first 2 years because of some health issues. The 739s had KBS tour 90 shafts that were hard stepped and a half inch shorter. They were great irons for me but I noticed last year I wasn’t elevating them the same and was a club shorter. I checked on a monitor and saw I lost some swing speed. I rented 2 sets of clubs on vacation this year. Both were regular flex without the hard step. I elevated them just fine and the distance was back so that’s what made me decide for sure to do a reshaft. I got a couple of estimates from a local shop I like. Sub 70 had a President’s Day sale and I had a gift card so out of curiosity I clicked on the 749s and priced them out. I had a gift card also had a set of irons I could use for a trade in. Anyhow, with the discount, trade in and gift card the 749s were cheaper than reshafting the 739s so I scheduled a fitting. I worked with Kevin who I had worked with before and he did a good job both times. I have some physical issues that make having a consistent swing a little difficult. I’m not terrible I shoot in the mid 80s but my legs don’t always work well. We tried many different shafts and also the original 699 heads which were similar in price to the 749s. I wasn’t seeing much difference from what I was doing with my old irons. Kevin weighed my old irons and then he put a Project X 5.5 in the 749 head. I felt the difference right away. Swing speed was better, launch was higher and carry distance was similar to what I used to get out of the 739s. Dispersion was also nice. At first glance the 2 heads look similar so I asked what was different. The 749 has a little more offset, a thinner face, the sole looks a little different and a bit more weight in the right places to make them launch easier. We went with the Project X even though they were an upgrade. It was only $30 so no big deal. Kevin also saw I had a 699U in my bag and said you should reshaft that too. It cost me just under $300 for new irons and reshafting the utility . First impressions from the little I have used them have been good. They definitely launch very easy. Distance has been what I was hoping for. My miss is a push right and I’m guessing the slightly more offset is making that less of a miss. The one round I have used them for was a little rough the first 9 but things started clicking after that. I’ll try to post something after a few more rounds but so far another purchase from Sub 70 I’m happy with.IMG_0627.jpeg.711468186ef4213abc9fbef55ea0de62.jpegIMG_0626.jpeg.ae9c466344f78721c7f626da9ee964c3.jpegIMG_0625.jpeg.359180b4addde23fc0b1477cb5eeb94a.jpeg
