plastic? – Boston Steel Guitar Capo for 6-String Guitar Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It's a capo. It works well. This style capo works much easier and efficiently than other styles. 7 dollars is a great price when a (steel) capo in a music store can cost 30 dollars.
Cons:
While it says "Stainless steel", It is clearly made of plastic. My capo came not looking like the one listed in the picture but looking like sku 25859, 25858, and 24334. But at least it was still black. Being plastic, when you squeeze the capo to open it, the first few times will begin to scrap away a layer of plastic as the spring contracts. It wasn't a major issue and is no longer scraping.
Other:
It's a capo. It does what it's supposed to.
Bottomline:
7 dollars vs. 30 dollars. You decide.
