    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Cheap

    - Heavy duty (even though NOT steel)

    - Holds down all the string with an even force

    - Works like the capos you can buy at music stores for 2x-3x the price

    Cons:

    - It's not steel but a heavy duty plastic (doesn't really affect the effectiveness though)

    - Mine arrived with a little rust on the spring holding the upper & bottom components together

    OtherThoughts:

    All in all a very good buy!! Cheaper than going to a store and buying it there, with very little difference in terms of build quality. I feel less guilty about tossing it around and stuff because it was cheaper. Bought another one for a friend (who wanted to pay something like 15$ for a capo at a store).

    Bottomline:

    Worth the purchase, especially if you're just starting out on the guitar and are practicing on a guitar that isn't the best... Fairly simple to figure out how to use (I've never used a capo before and figured it out the first time i saw it..) and works just as well as the pricey ones. I might consider investing in a better quality one in the future if I get a better guitar.
