Iím using a Corona Old Boy for a year now and lighting my pipe has been twice the fun since then.
Itís stylish, convenient to handle and very reliable.
Iíd been using matches before I got it, and Iíd still say they are the next best thing.

If I had a nice calm place that I could guarantee a light, a match is the best bet. But the streets of chicago, ducking into door nooks for a relight means my bic is my friend most of the time.

Matches are absolutely fantastic. I strike one up if I'm at home, but if I'm out I always use my Pipe Zippo. I refuse to use a bic, because it just dumps butane into your tobacco. You have to hold it upside down also.

Lighter
Everytime

Had many lighters over the years...
..the one I always grab when I walk out the door is my trusty ZIPPO!

Butanes seem to run out of fuel quickly no matter the brand or seals go bad, my zippo has never let me down. Easy on fuel and good in a breeze. The fuel taste is only there for a couple of puffs anyhoo. Besides the metallic clink when I it's opened and closed has a nice ring to it.
IMHO

Until my 23 yo daughter lost it I always used a Nimrod pipe lighter. Only times it wouldn't light were when I let it get low on fluid. I think its time to buy another one.

I also vote for option C: All of the Above. I keep a Bic disposable in the car for smoking my old basket pipe on the way to and from work. I also have a fancy pipe lighter that I use at home, usually when I'm smoking my more expensive pipes. Then I have a few zippos and matches around as backups. I actually don't prefer the zippos.
The swanky matches I bought at my local B&M actually provide the best light, imo, but living on the coast means there is usually a brisk wind blowing, which isn't conducive to using expensive matches. Unless you have a big budget set aside for matches.

Ditto.

Kudos to you for admitting to being lazy enough to grab for a Bic once in a while. I use matches in the house. I much prefer them. Although if I'm out in the yard or taking a break at work I use a lighter. No matchstick litter, and they are easier to manage in the wind.

Zippo pipe insert when outside (with any breeze )- otherwise Zippo style Vector Thunderbird (butane).

*after posting this I thought I might try matches again. There is no doubt that, for me, they provide the best light for a pipe (indoors or in windless conditions). They also seem to add another nice layer of OCD to the ritual of pipe lighting - very enjoyable! Very Happy
