    I don't use a capo much, but have ended up with a Kyser (spring loaded, similar to the one above) and a G7th (as NegativeEase recommended) both work really well and are quick and easy to put on/take off. The G7th is my top choice though, it's a little pricey, but a great design IMHO.

    Thalia is blowing out their capos 50% off I have one and love it.

    Now for new orders, we have converted all of the products that are not currently ready to ship to "Pre-Order" on our website. These products will be built-to-order once we are allowed to return to work on April 8. If you do decide to order products from us during this special pre-order period we are offering a 50% discount incentive!

    We need new orders to keep us going during this difficult time and we will be forever grateful to those who are able to help us out right now. The Coupon Code for the 50% Discount is: PREORDER50
    We also respectfully request that you do not ask for a 50% discount if you have recently received an order from us, prior to the shutdown. This special discount is offered as a pre-order incentive to keep cash coming in while we are temporarily shut down only

    You should do a re-enactment of Taylor Swift playing her Thalia Capo in your jammies.

    Also, congratulations on finishing the "The Game of Guitar Life". You are the winner with your final purchase of a decorative capo

    You have now completed your life's quest to own all the gear necessary to fill the emptiness in your soul -first felt as a child when you longed for your first guitar.

    It's quite an achievement! Congrats

    Another + for the Shubb. I also have the D'addario NS, and I much prefer the Shubb because of its lower profile. Everything else seems bulky, and it works great.

    A G7th is all anyone ever needs -it's more functional than a Thalia and it looks great if actually cares.

    I have that same capo. I agree, super easy to use, the thumbscrew allows for tension adjustment, it's not bulky. It just works and is simple. I have a Kyser too that I'll use from time to time but the NS is my favorite.
