I use both SB's and TQ's when the situation warrants it. For me, this is not an either/or proposition, it is a when. I have learned to use my SB very well, it isn't difficult to get situated. For me, it is actually a bit easier than situating a TQ. The TQ is great for weight savings, or for supplementing the SB. this is where it really shines IMHO. I have 2 different SB's and a TQ, I use them all at different times and sometimes a SB/TQ in conjunction. As will most things it is about the system, not the individual item.
