What kind of deodorant REALLY blocks sweat - STRONG sweat?

The slightest heat will make me sweat. My underarms get soaked. My deodorant isn't cutting it! What do I use?

I know that many topics on deodorant have come and gone, but my question is specific.
I have been using Speed Stick (gel) for quite a long time now. I discovered within the last year that it does in fact stain my shirts when I sweat a lot, and that this is probably due to its aluminum content. So I can no longer use this deodorant.
I also can't use the same deodorant because it simply isn't powerful enough to stop my sweat. It is an anti-perspirant, but it doesn't get me out the door before my underarms are wet, even in cool weather. I'm like that, I guess.
Catch: I've tried a ton of other anti-perspirants, and none of them are strong enough.
The question: Which anti-perspirant should I use?? Are there any really strong ones that might actually stop the underarm sweat power of a man such as me?
-I can't have aluminum in the deodorant, obviously
-I'd prefer a non-dry deodorant, since I've had rashes before from using dry stuff (but having dry underarms is MUCH more important, so ignore this if you know of powerful stuff)
-I'd prefer stuff that is either non-scented or smells good.
-Price isn't that much of a factor, but it is something of a factor.
PLEASE help me find a deodorant that won't fail me!
