Of the three click type torque wrenches I have, the 3/8" drive 15-75 lb/ft. Snap-On gets BY FAR the most use (like 95%). The 1/2" Craftsman, 30-250 I think, is used primarily on American engines where a torque angle gauge isn't required and the 1/4 drive Snap-On, 10-200 lb/in. is for the small stuff.
I think the click type is much better that the torsion arm type 'cause the torsion type reads different depending on how fast you pull the handle and at what angle you view the scale. The torsion type is, however, is a vast improvement over the method as described in the 1938 Buick service manual which states "tighten the head bolts to a reasonable tightness using a 5/8" wrench that's 11" long".
