I prefer filters with proper filtration media rather than reusable stainless steel mesh filters. Regardless if it is for fuel, oil, or drinking water. As an example, I sharpen some of my knives with abrasives that are 10x finer than the best stainless mesh filter could trap. I know how much wear the fine abrasives cause, I don't want that for my engines...
I'm currently running a Purolator BOSS filter (PBL14610). It is expensive at $25CDN, but it has a synthetic filter media with a polymer mesh backing that claims to have a 99% first pass efficiency. It also seems to flow well as the oil pressure warning light goes out almost instantly when I start the bike. Being slightly larger than the stock filter doesn't hurt either.
