Oil filter wrenches

Is there a preferred brand of oil wrench out there?
My oil wrench (big socket) won't make solid connection on the filter due to how far my ratchet sticks through when connected.
Either the filter wrench spins on the filter or the ratchet spins in the hole. Not really trusting the torque setting at this point.

Any belt type oil filter wrench can do the job. Tighten by hand first and last half turn or so use the belt wrench.

Channellock 209 works very well.

Just checked in my shop - I have TWO that fit my FRAM filters for the V650. One's steel, marked: [OEM "F"]...; while the other is plastic marked as [5 SUPER GRAPHITE].

BOTH use a 3/8 drive.
