I've had this model for years now and they still work fine after a lot of use. Well made, as good today as the day they were bought. Cheap enough to buy a few & keep them in gig bags, rehearsal rooms etc so one is there when you need it. Well made, holds down the strings in accordance with your needs & easy to apply. Fantastic value for the money. Buy a couple, as if you are like me, you are likely to need a capo all the time. Well made. Quality, is wonderful with reliabilty. You can't go wrong at this price.
