Default Best clamps for tubing

I'm sure this has been addressed, but I can't find anything. What are the best clamps for liquid and gas tubing? I am gathering everything up to build a keezer and its one of the last items I need to purchase.

I use worm drive hose clamps... or a nipple that is one-size too big and some heat to help stretch the tubing over it.

Oetiker or oetiker style ear clamps.

I had hose clamps but these crimp type are by far superior.

I used automotive fuel injection hose clamps. I had a bunch in my tool box and they work great.They don't cut the hose and I think they are stainless.You can get them at most auto part stores.

oetikers are terrible if you need to take them off again (i.e., cleaning, etc). These hose clamps that Bobby sells look excellent, though I haven't used them.

There is a trick to removing them but the upside outweighs that. Once you learn how to remove them they are faster to remove then the screw type.

I'd like to know the trick and the upside.

Really? I don't like that they're single use, but they're faster and easier to install and remove than worm drive ones IMO. Bobby's look nice too, and aren't single use which is nice.
