sub 70 driver review

With the golf equipment market dominated by major manufacturers like Callaway, TaylorMade, and Ping it's hard for new companies to make their mark. However, Sub 70 golf has proven that they can offer impressive, high-quality equipment at a fair price. The new company's unique business model and club fitting experience makes them a good choice for players who can't find their ideal driver with traditional brands.

The Sub 70 849 driver is a compact player's driver that prioritizes workability over forgiveness. Its design is sleek and modern, with a black carbon crown that looks really cool. The carbon crown serves a functional purpose as well by moving weight around the sole to tune the center of gravity for a desired ball flight. The 849 series also includes an adjustable hosel (+/- 2deg) and face angle adjustments (-/+ 1deg).

Although the Sub 70 849 driver isn't as forgiving as more expensive drivers it does have excellent feel and performance. The titanium body, face, and crown create a nice blend of strength and lightness, which contributes to the great feel of the club. The movable weights in the sole are another big reason that the Sub 70 driver feels so good. By using three separate ports (12 grams in the rear and 3 grams each in the heel and toe) golfers can tune their CG for their preferred ball flight.

The Sub 70 irons are some of the best value for money models on the market. By not sponsoring tour pros, spending nothing on advertising, and selling direct to consumers online (rather than giving middle-man retailers their profit) Sub 70 has been able to produce irons that are equal to or outperform some of the top name brands in terms of performance for half the cost.
