Hair straightener suggestions?

My beloved Conair 2-in-1 Straightener and Curling Iron (model CD110
, now discontinued) finally died yesterday and I can't seem to find anything similar.

Two things made this iron really great: (1) the straightening irons on the inside of the barrel were 1.5" wide and got much better pressure over a wider section of hair than the single-purpose flat iron straighteners I've tried, and (2) the clip on the barrel held the hair tight against the barrel for curling. The newer Conair 2-in-1 models don't seem to have the clip anymore and are only 1" wide. The single-purpose flat iron straighteners that I've previously bought (HSI Professional
Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic 1" Flat Iron Straightener and the Remington Wet 2 Straight 1" flat iron
) have never provided enough pressure so it takes forever to actually straighten my unruly, thick, wavy hair using them. Anyone have suggestions?
