Default Best capper to buy

I got one of those cheap ass red/orageish hand cappers. I was capping a bottle and cracked part of it off. Also, I was using some Doe Equis bottles and the caps would get stuck in the capper. What is the best one to buy for the cheapest price. I am probaby going to get a stand capper.

I prefer the Red Barron hand capper, but I also have the quick-adjusting Super Agata bench capper for bottles that don't work well with the Red Barron. I just wish the gears were metal; the plastic gears get worn out after a couple of years and need to be unstuck from time to time.
