Which is the best type of crochet hook for amigurumi?

Crochet hooks come in two main styles (in-line and tapered) and different people prefer different styles. For more information about the differences between them, which my favourite is, and how to source hooks internationally, see my article Crochet Hook Styles.

For information on choosing the best hook size for any amigurumi, see the tips in my Resizing Amigurumi article.
