Looking for a clipboard manager

I have tried dozens of clipboard managers for mac but haven't found a good one as yet. I am looking for the following features:

1. I should be able to see a list of my last 10 - 20 copies items in a UI that I should be able to invoke with a shortcut key. Should be able to select the one I want with a shortcut key.
2. I should be able to invoke the search functionality with a shortcut key and search and then paste it with a shortcut key.
3. On pasting it should automatically be pasted into the application I am using.
4. Preferably should be free.

Any suggestions?

The title is the product: Plain Clipboard Manager . Free for personal use. KISS principle. Also some other extra's like 'key templates' which replaces short keywords typed with the long value specified (like MacOS has buildin).
