I am a fan of this capo! When I need a capo on the road or when I hand my guitar of to kiddos (I work with children & young adults) or inexperienced players I can rely on this capo to do what it needs to without being my prized capo that I don't want to lose. It has a proper amount of tension and allows me to play how I want to play when I use it. It is slightly smaller than my preferred capo, but happens to not be any less THICK in terms of actual grip on the guitar. I really enjoy this as a backup and could see myself purchasing another at some point. I own many capos, having tried five brands and settling on purchasing three Kysers for my live performances, and this would be my go to if I ever lost all three of my favorites!
