Not heavy but built like a tank. Easy to adjust. A couple of years back I started using Shubb capos for my guitars and now I use them for all of my stringed instruments. Can't go wrong with Shubb. Top of the line, no doubt.
Excellent product as you'd expect from Shubb. There's not a great deal to say about it other than it works and it works well. If you're in the market for a banjo capo, buy one of these and move with your life.
