Opening 5-5 in the Blacks

After a club game last night a few of my friends and I were discussing the correct way to open a hand 5-5 in the black suits. I had never known there was any way to open such a hand other than with 1. Apparently some play that with a strong hand you open 1 first and then rebid spades. Paradoxically, I have also heard with very minimal openers that you open 1 and then rebid spades.

 

What the heck, what is right?

Always start with 1
Open 1 with particularly strong hands
Open 1 with very minimal hands
