Generally speaking, higher lofted drivers will tend to go straighter due to a higher backspin-sidespin ratio.
As a lowball hitter, I'm looking at the SQ 13* and G5 12*. There is no point in carrying a driver if you hit your 3 wood further. And yes, I hit my 3 wood further than any 10* driver.
I know there is something wrong with my driver swing to be launching it that low, but I want an easy fix. Loft is it.

With the current trend toward high launch and low spin, it is easy to simply add loft to maximize launch conditions rather than improve the swing.

I was only two yards longer with the 10.5 NVG2 and the store had one in stock. Plus, I was grouping the balls together in a small area.
From now until the end of my days, I will never ever hit a driver with less than 10.5 degrees of loft and no more than 15 degrees.
I don't carry a 3 wood, only a 17 degree hybrid.
