I owned one for about a week. My trajectory was borderline ridiculous - unbelievably high (even with the 13*). Might have been a different story with a high kickpoint shaft, but not for me.

TaylorMade M2 (9.5*)
Exotics CB5 (15*)
TM Rescue TP (19*)
Mizuno JPX 850 Forged (4-GW)
PING Anser Forged (54*,58*)
PING Vintage Pal 2 (35")

They go mid-high for me. The 3 wood is long. I like the Nike Diamana in this wood. The SQ 3 wood is exceptional off of the deck. I haved moved on to a Callaway X fairway with NVS 75 shaft, but the SQ is close. In my opinion, the SQ with the stock shaft is a better fairway than the Callaway X with the stock shaft. It takes a decent reshaft to really the benefits of the X. That was not the case with the SQ. Its a great fairway wood.

How about compared to the T60?

I have the SQ 15 3 wood and am very happy with it now. The stock Nike shaft is okay but on the flimsy side. I just reshafted it with a PF V2 75 and now it's almost as long as my driver. With the stock shaft, I had to take a smooth swing to not over power it. No worries now with the V2.

 

As for ballflight, it does not balloon for me, It's a mid/high flight that flattens out. I was using a Sonertec 2.5 14 degree and the SQ 15 is equal is distance and much more forgiving. You just have to find the right shaft for it that works for you.

I have both the SQ and T60. My gamer is the T60. I just love the trajectory and feel of it. However, I do think for most people the SQ is easier to play, a little more forgiving, and easy to take off the deck but I have been playing the T60 for a couple of years and am just very comfortable with it. I have both SQ and the T60 with the same shafts and I can work the T60 a little better and better control for me. The difference is not a great amount but there is some. The T60 is what I play off most tees as it is the best club in my bag. I have 3 new 3 woods in the closet just as back ups as well as all the other lofts available. (I know, what a club ho :)). I think that they are both great clubs, but as for now, the T60 is still my gamer but give em both a try. You will love either one.

Do you have a stock shaft recommendation for those two? My ave swing speed with a driver is 95. I know custom fitting is ideal, but I'd like to be able to start somewhere first, and hopefully save some money.

Im not a fan of stock shafts unless they are steel for control. I currently play the Grafalloy Prolite shafts in my fairway woods and love them. The are a top quality, under $50 shaft upgrade. IF you want to stay stock shaft, the SQ stock graphite shaft is a little better then the stock T60 shaft. Your swing speed on a stock shaft should be between a regular and a stiff flex. Get the regular if you would like more distance and the stiff if you would like a little more control. The good thing about the T60 is you can find them for around $80.00 new with steel shafts if you look hard enough, depending on the loft you want. Hope this help.
