He rates lots, the quality between the major players is very similar. Take a look at his power meter review summary page.

Which one is best for you is a whole different story. Do you want to move it between bikes? Do you want to train and race with it etc etc. All these answers determine where it is based (pedal/hub/chainring) and that determines what models you can look at.

Thanks. I know I don't want stages. I saw a mate who rode an average of 360watts for an ironman but did a time of 5:50. 

I was thinking pioneer or power2max. 

I have a quarq. But it's old.

I have an old Quarq too. Nothing wrong with them. They're as good as anything else our there.

I wouldn't dismiss a powermeter product based on N=1, issues like that  will always happen for every brand. That said....Stages have had a bunch of issues talking to Garmins; it is a known issue, both sides blaming the other.

Power2max just released a cheaper unit - Eco? You could take a look at that.

I've got the FSA Powerbox which is essentialy a power2 max. Don't mind it, but its my first PM. Pros: cheap and battery lasts 400 hours apparently Cons: FSA cranks don't look 'the nicest'.

I wouldn't dismiss stages , I had an earlier one and it was crap , I now have the gen 2 and it works perfect, 

i now a few now that have been fine 

in my experience stages always read low  about 10% not high like u mentioned

but allways consistent 

i have a brand new stages crank set I could also sell u if u want

ultegra 6800 165mm

In the Cycling Maven Video, DC he prefers the Powertap PM as it's the most accurate and is to use cause he can transfer them to other bike easily.

I think the new Garmin vector looks good. They sound simple to use and no fuss if you want to swap bikes with them. Shouldn't be issues with compatibility of frame, bn type etc.  They'd be my pick.
