In other words a cage that does not dump your water bottle cage out regardless of ride conditions.
If you ever started a ride/race with 2 or 1 bottle and ended up with 1 or 0 bottles (assuming you didn't chuck it on purpose), they do not meet the standard for best water bottle cage and do not belong in this thread..
PS: This is based mainly on recent or actually all the time seeing people's water bottles flying across the road the moment any minor bump occurs, which is one of my pet peeves on rides with many people, who ever leaves their home and not make sure the bottles are snugly secure on the bike?

Definitely don't meet any styling requirements - but cheap, and absolutely indestructable. And because they're moulded plastic, they consistently grip a bidon tighter than a schoolboy gripping ... (I'll save the mods the effort of censoring the rest of that ...)
Based on El Chignon's criteria, these are the best cages by far - so much so that I have also used them on MTBs and the cross bike (when I do 3 hour off road training rides) and they've stood up to everything that you can throw at them. One of the BC100 cages I currently use is about 10 years old ...
A stylier alternative - provided you use Tacx bottles (or those of a similar dimension) - is the old trusty Tao: http://tacx2009.ilink2.nl/producten/bidonhouders/Bidonhouders/Tao_and_Tao_carbon.dot
