Ever Heard of Sub 70 Golf Clubs?

I've just heard of these for the very first time. 


Sub 70 Golf - Expectations Redefined ... Sub 70 Golf was created to give golfers access to the highest quality and newest technology available in the...

For what ever reason these remind me a lot of PXG. 

Have any of you ever heard of these?
Have any of you ever seen these?... Tried these? … Played these? … 

At first glace they appear like a very good price point. Having said that when I spec'ed them out with the same shafts and grips that I recently got in my set of Mizuno Hot Metal Pros, they only came out to about a $50 savings over the set of Mizunos I got. Of course, I went through about an hour and a half fitting for the Mizunos. 

I supposed if you are planning on buying off the rack, these may be a very good value. 

What do you all think? 

……….. about Sub 70

……...… about direct to consumer clubs in general.

I've heard of sub70, maybe on one of the more commercialized golf sites like GolfWRX, MGS or THP, and have browsed their iron lines many times via their website. I've read positive feedback on reddit, but not sure if that counts as an objective review of performance. To my eye, I think they look pretty good, but that is in the eye of the beholder.

Like you mentioned, the price points seem really nice, but then you start adding customization. I bought my Wilson FG Tour V6 4-GW iron set for $95 a club. I did initially get them in the wrong shaft flex, but didn't realize this until I started lessons and had feedback from my instructor. I bought a set of essentially unused shafts in the correct flex for $80 and installed them myself. The sub70 639 CB irons, with similar shafts to what I currently used are the same price, around $800. This is still cheaper than some of the biggest brand clubs though, assuming equivalent quality.

I think it is a cool idea, but maybe not for everyone. I'm a fan of the DTC model with golf balls, but that's a smaller financial commitment. My main issue with DTC clubs is the whole fitting thing. My current clubs are not fitted, but I did get fit into a more appropriate shafts for my whole bag. Sub70 has an online fitting tool, and they do have a demo program to compare a single club to one in your current set, and you can visit their headquarters in Illinois for a custom fitting, but for many that want the full launch monitor fitting, it probably comes up short. I'd feel more confident if they had a network of fitters that you could go to.

Never heard of them. I have nothing against direct to consumer business models (I play Snell balls) but for clubs with no fitting process? Hard pass.

I’ve played the 639 cb irons for almost a year.  I like them.  Just got the same shaft and specs from my previous irons.  They work well for me.  Jason the owner is very accessible to answer questions.  I’ve tried a couple other clubs, a driving iron and a driver that I didn’t like and they let me return them no issue.  I think their irons for better players are solid.

tried them. the customer service is awesome. the clubs? equal to the price they charge. for me they felt strangely weighted. a little heavy and the ball didn't really jump off the club even with pure hits. so not for me. got the taylor made p790. worth the extra cost. Jason did spend a lot of time with me though and I appreciated that. If youre looking at this brand you are probably cost conscious about a new set. i'd almost buy a set of year old mizuno's titleists or taylor made then the sub 70's. you should try them though. it's risk free and you might just like them.

I'm not actually in the market for new clubs. I just got fit late last year for new Mizuno Hot Metal Pros and so far I really like them. My guess is I won't buy a new set of irons for about 5 to 10 years.

I bought a set of their 739 irons last summer. Those are their game improvement model. I was close to buying a set of F9 and decided to demo these out of curiosity. I honestly really didn’t really notice a difference between the two. Distances and dispersion were very close. The owner Jason has been great to work with. The demo program is pretty easy to use if you want to try their clubs. I had a pro who gave me lessons look at my set and he gave them a try and he felt they were solid.

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
