Review: Sub 70 699 Pro Irons

If you’re looking for a quality iron and don’t want to break the bank, Sub 70 Golf hits one out of the park. I came across Sub 70 Golf after a member posted a pic of the irons they ordered, so I decided to try them out as well.

Right off the bat, I absolutely love the look of these irons. The 699 Pro features the traditional look of a hollow cavity iron which offers distance and workability.

At address, these irons look absolutely beautiful. With minimal offset and a top line that isn’t too thin, so you don’t feel like you have to be perfect to hit these, they really fit my eye at address.

Now the fun part, hitting them. If the 699 Pros feel like they look, they are certainly on to something.

The first thing I noticed, the 699 Pro irons pack some serious power, speed and distance. And who doesn’t want to hit it further. With most distance irons from what I have experienced, you lose the ability to work the ball, but with these, I was still able to work the ball both ways comfortably.

On miss hits, I noticed that there wasn’t a whole lot of loss in terms of distance. With the very large sweet spot in these irons, I felt the misses still were leaving me in spots that were manageable.

The feel and sound of the 699 Pros is very much in line with something you would find out of the TaylorMade P770’s.

Specs: The 699 Pro set I got came 4-PW in the following specs:

For a traditional 4-PW set with a KBS Tour Steel Shaft, you’re going to set yourself back less than $600 which is a killer deal on a great set of irons like these. There are of course other customizations in terms of shaft and grip that you can upgrade to as well with many options available on their site.

If you are a player looking to take your game to the next level but don’t want to dump a whole lot of money into a big name brand, Sub 70 Golf is the perfect option for you. The 699 Pros are a fantastic game improvement iron for all skill levels really. Whether you’re a 5 handicap or a 15 handicap, this is a great set for any player looking to take their game to the next level.

When I’m trying a set of irons, there’s usually 5 things I look for and usually not all 5 things are met. They are: Look & Feel, workability, distance, forgiveness and price. Sub 70 does a damn good job of checking off all those boxes, and that’s amazing to see out of a new company.

Sub 70 Golf does also offer muscle back and cavity back irons, in addition to the 699 pros, you can check out their entire line by clicking here
