I've used a Shubb a fair bit on electric, it works well for me. I haven't tried the dunlop.
Add me to the Shubb list. Use 'em for electric/acoustic, and got one for my banjo as well.
Albert Collins, when I met him in the early eighties, had a Price style horseshoe capo that he had wrapped in electrical tape where it met the strings
I've always used the Kyser, the acoustic version. The trick that my guitar teacher told me six years ago was to clamp the capo on a book or something like that, and leave it overnight or for a few days. It remedies a lot of the tightness you get with a new capo and doesn't put the guitar so out of tune.
I don't like electric capos because they eat batteries. I prefer a Shubb. You can adjust the pressure, there's no spring to wear out, and if you wear the face of it out against the strings there are three other sides to it you can use.
