Lezyne Pressure Drive all day. I've had mine all spring so far, have fixed 8 flats using both co2 and pumping (not all my flats.) Don't use schraeder much but tried once and it worked as well as presta has.

I so want to be contrary but... I have 3 Lezyne minipumps! The air hose is great for not ripping the valve stem out if you have bad technique, and the screw on chuck is awesome.

Topeak mini-G dual w/guage. Dual action, adaptable head and with the guage (prevents pinch flats from low psi) I can confidently do roadside repairs and ride off with no worries about where the next filling station is. You can easily attain pressures of 115psi.

Topeak Mini Morph. Has a handle and fold out foot stand so you can pump it like a regular floor pump. Also has a hose so you dont rip out your stem when pumping.

I've never tried a Lezyne; maybe they're terrific. But every minipump I HAVE tried has been slower, clumsier and hardly any lighter than my 30-year-old never-let-me-down Zefal frame-fit or my five-year-old Topeak Road Morph. Drop by my garage and I'll give you an armload of minis I bought before I gave up on them.

In pumps, size matters, so that is not surprising.
It is also really tough to Cinzano another rider, using a minipump.

While not "dual action", I'd also suggest one of the Topeak Morph pumps. They work well on both Presta and Schrader valves and are capable of high pressure with reasonable effort. The hose keeps you from shearing off your valve stem. The flip-out pedal and handle are a lot more ergonomic than most mini pumps. The Mini Morph is super portable. The slightly bigger Road Morph G can get the job done in fewer strokes and has a built-in pressure gauge.
