I've given up on shotgun mics on boom poles. I get much better audio with a lapel mic.

My question is what's the best audio solution out there?

What's wrong with shotgun mics on boom?

I use Sanken Cos-11D lavalier microphones and they are amazing. http://www.amazon.com/Sanken-COS-11D-Black-Lavalier-Mic/dp/B0072ND0W8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388369598&sr=8-1&keywords=lavalier+mic+cos

I do, however, prefer to use a boom microphone when possible because the setup is quick. You don't have to take the time to connect the lav mics to everyone, you can move the boom mic from actor to actor during a shot so you don't have to edit multiple audio tracks like when using lavs, you don't need to worry about hiding the lav mic wires, you don't have to worry about the mic brushing up against someone's shirt, and you can monitor and mix the sound levels with a boom.
