Good cookie press?

As holiday baking season approaches, I'm starting to think about making cookies, and my all time favorites were always Spritz. However, I made the mistake of parting with my "old school" cookie press several years ago, with the thought that I'd prefer a newer, updated version.

I have heard publication after publication raving about "trigger-style" cookie presses, and so I picked one up a couple of years ago. (It's a Wilton Cookie Pro.) It does indeed accurately mete out the same amount of dough each time you squeeze the handle. Unfortunately, it's the *wrong* amount of dough -- one click isn't enough to fully form a cookie, and two clicks results in a smashed blob. On top of that, the thing is a nightmare to assemble and disassemble.

Before I start searching for an old copper press with a knob at the back, does anyone out there have a more convenient, modern press they actually *like*? Easy cleanup is a plus. I'm willing to consider electric, but I'm not sure it's entirely necessary.
