So, once you narrow it down to a company, like TM, you then have to get the right loft and shaft. With your height and what you posted you probably need something around 9.0 of loft and a stiff or extra stiff shaft to knock the ball flight down. Do you know what your swing speed is? If it's high, like 110+ you will probably want extra stiff. If not, stiff will do just fine. If you're looking to lower your ball flight, try to find a shaft that has a higher kick/flex point.
If I were you, I'd demo some drivers at a nearby range. I know you want to get a used one to save some cash (pretty smart), but hitting some should help you out with your decision.
