Sub70 699u driving iron- get one


Recommended Posts

I feel like I'm getting away with something.  If you're interested in trying a driving iron but think that $250 is a bit much for this spot in your bag, check out sub 70 699u. There's no way a club this cheap should be this good.   Looks are pretty inoffensive for a club of its type, but there's definitely some offset and topline.  Good stock shaft options (I went with smoke black 6.0 90g, 2 iron loft).  Feel and sound are great.  Impact is a satisfying thump- not clicky cheap cast feeling, but at the same time it's not a mizuno either.  Very easy to flight up or down.  Very satisfied with this one, can't wait to get it out on course. 

 

Note- they'll send it to you shaft logo up unless otherwise specified.  First order of business was to pull the head and hide the logos. 

 

Note 2- sub70 has great customer service and communicates excellently and seems willing to build just about whatever you want.   Easily the most responsive golf company I've ever interacted with.

Glad to hear. I have the 3 on order with the same shaft. Looking forward to hitting it. 

Jay has mentioned they are working on adding left handed stuff. not a ton of difference between the 699 and the utility iron, if you want one.

I have one.

 

also @Sub70Golfis great to deal with... I just bought wedges from them... 100% success with sand saves! (Statistics are fun).

 

my 22 degree 699 is a monster. Perfect club for what I needed. 4 iron replacement, stinger and recovery club...

I have one.....a 4 that Sub70 modified (bent weak to 23*; shortened 1/2") such that it is similar to a G710 5-iron (I play 7-UW). Based on sim testing last week, I hit the club 160 (140 carry) and straight off a tee, making it the right call for longish par 3s and short, tight par 4s. I hit it surprisingly well off the deck and anticipate it will be god for recovery shots.

 

Sub70 customer service is terrific and I am a satisfied customer.

I don't see a lefty options. But Sub 70 is skimpy on the left anyway.

Sub 70 sure is on my list of irons to hit, especially with the trial program (but I'd likely buy them anyway). Glad to hear they are expanding the lefties.

I agree.  I have the 699 Pro Utility in a 3. I wanted to do an experiment of getting utility club with a 5 iron shaft to match the shafts in my set (Modus 120). The price point made Sub 70 the perfect option. 

 

It like everything about it. It looks great, plays great. A nice option for short/tight par 4s off the tee.

It makes sense for them to build out left handed options, they don’t iterate club design much... I’ve forgotten what jay said was coming in lefty, but I know it’s some of their stuff.

Do they ship to canada?

They do, but there was extra cost for shipping and additional duty once it got here - I understand they are working with a company to make this more efficient. I tried to not let the extra cost bother me as it is just the way it works for us in Canada, but it does start to eat away at the cost savings vs a bigger OEM. That said, the customer experience, quality, and performance are all reasons I'm thinking of adding more Sub70 clubs to my bag!

They are working to have a distributor in Canada... I’m pretty sure it’s close to being done. Hopefully that helps with the mark up and duty stuff.

      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
