HELP ME!

In desperate need of FW Options!
I have posted this question before, but am still not sure of what to do. I have the ability to get any fw wood i want for a decent price, so the only thing to question is quality and what fits me. I got my swing analyzed on a launch monitor and here's the numbers:

SwingSpeed(m.p.h): 104
Ball Speed(m.p.h):150
Spin (R.P.M)-3100
Average Ball Flight: Mid-High; Fade (1 or 2 drives are slices that are in trouble)
Looking to get: Lower Ball Spin
Maximum Forgiveness
Same Ball Flight (Mid-High)
Mid Size Head

My options so far are as follows:
Nike SasQuatch 15*
Nike T60 15*
TaylorMade r5/r7 15*

If anyone has any custom shaft options or different clubs that they have found as a good option is welcomed. Thanks WRXers!

Depends on what size of head you like. I prefer the R7TP over the R5 because of the headsize, but found it to be shorter than others. The Nike T60 is a good FW off the tee, but a deeper face makes it more difficult off the deck. FW's you should try:

 

R7 Steel

Adams LP

Sonartec 2.5

Callaway X Tour

Callaway Mavrick Callaway Mavrick SZ 3W Callaway Superhybrid Titleist 510 20 Titleist T100 Vokey SM7 54 and 60 Scotty Cameron T22

The R5 is easier to get into the air and is more forgiving because of the larger head. You also might try Cobra's Speed Series.

FAIRWAYS:  Callaway Rogue ST 3, 9, 11 Fairway Woods

HYBRIDS:  Callaway Big Bertha 3 Hybrid, Rogue ST 4 Hybrid

I recently bought an R7 TP 15 degree and haven't been real happy with it. The shaft doesn't quite fit me I guess. I went to Oahu this weekend and while I was there, I found a Nike T60 new for 129.00. I thought "what the heck" and picked it up. I wish I had bought this before I bought the R7. It is very easy to hit and has a deep face for the tee. It is also easy to hit off the ground. I was not impressed by the stock shaft and had some control issues with it (I could hit it a real long way though...) I put a 75X Prolaunch (which is my normal fairway shaft) in it tonight and I will play with it tomorrow.

Our swing speed numbers are close so, I'll let you know how I like it after my round tomorrow.

T60 hands down to me. I have both it and the Sasquatch and just recently went back to the T60. Long and workable. I don't have any problems off the deck with mine at all. Its my money club. A perect 270 yard club for my swing. Plus they can be had for $80 Brand New shipped at tgw.com with a steel shafts. For you righties anyway. Yank the steel out and put a real shaft in it. Saves the money of the factory graphite that isn't much. My swing speed is a hair faster and I play a Grafalloy Prolite 45 stiff shaft in mine and it works nice. The shaft would probably work better at X stiff with my swing speed but I like a softer shaft. Just my 2 cents.
