Help me get a better peeler for citrus!

I need a peeler that turns out long beautiful strips of pithless citrus skin! Mine right not gives me short 3 inch pieces entirely covered with pith. Not ideal

Particularly as I've been making wondrous punches from this
punch book, I've noticed that no matter how hard I try or how much I practice I can't get long pithless strips.
I can get longer strips if I don't care at all about pith, but that's also non-ideal.
Part of my issue is that I have an older peeler that is meant to swivel from vertical to horizontal, but ends up not really sticking in either position. That's fine for carrots, but not for this.
Help me metafilter! I crave your recommendations to fix this pithy situation!
