I've found that the technical race finisher's shirts are quite good personally. The problem with whicking shirts is that they don't work very well in high humidity, which is most of the country, most of the time unfortunately. So if you get a new shirt, even if it's better, you will still struggle to keep it dry when the humidity is high. I'm a heavy sweater, and it's just something I've learned to live with. Losing weight has helped a bit as I'm not working as hard for the same paces. I wear an Inov8 race cap, which is good at keeping the sweat pouring down my face.
I did a 21 mile hot run last week in 20degC, with no breeze, wearing a finisher's shirt and I was dry most of the time, despite the fact that I was also sweating like a pig and drinking more fluids. Wearing the same shirt on a damp wet afternoon will leave me soaked. The trick is timing your runs for low humidity, or just getting used to it.
