Default Are there any good drill bits left!

I've had a problem finding good drill bits lately, especially 5/8" & larger. Most of them would be ok for alum but just don't cut it for steel... what is going on?!?

I've been impressed with Dewalt Cobalt (not titanium) Pilot Point drill bits.
I'm not sure if they come bigger than 1/2" though.
I bought a set of Cobalt step bits that I really like too.

I understand this guy distributes their products, minus the brand names at cut rates...
