23 Wedges Tested...#1 Wedge in Accuracy. #4 in Full Shot Spin. (2021 MyGolfSpy Most Wanted Wedge Test)
One of the main tenets of the Sub 70 ethos is that we do not launch an update to our clubs unless it will provide an appreciable performance difference to the majority of players that bag our clubs. Unlike many of the leading golf club manufacturers, we will not release a new line of clubs each year, but only when our continuing development and research lands us with an update that is better than the previous iteration. It is exactly that process that leads us to the 286 Wedge, which is the next generation of the original Sub 70 Wedge Series.
The 286 Wedge is forged from buttery smooth DT-4 Steel, with a CNC milled face for the ultimate in feel and control. Our designers added a third port in the head, which our testing revealed provides a better, more optimal ball flight without sacrificing spin or stopping power. The leading edge of the face is straighter than the prior model, with a slightly softer roll into the sole of the club, providing better turf interaction and giving the club an exceptional ability to slide through turf and grass. Ultimately, consistent with our belief that companies should not continually release clubs without demonstrable improvements, we at Sub 70 are proud of the fact that the 286 wedge is the culmination of 2 years of refinement and honing our original design.
