Ive had countless Clippers and the newer ones have a softer metal for the striker wheel than they used to have. Either that or the flints are harder than they used to be as mine wear pretty fast and don't spark properly anymore. They are handy though for the 'pokey bit' though (if you get my use for it)
Zippo's are good but they evaporate pretty quickly
I've also had a load of the "turboflame" types and unless you use triple filtered butane which is a pain in the posterior to get hold of and extortionately expensive.
