    Big thumbs up for this capo.

    I've been using the Kyser Capos for a while and found them to be of great quality but they get in the way when playing & apply more pressure than needed putting your tuning out & even putting dents in your neck.

    Just got this Planet Waves NS Pro today.

    Excellent!

    Doesn't get in the way, low profile. Easy to fit and adjust with just the right amount of tension.

    I have their NS Trio (Partial Capo) on order too for something different.

    Recommended.

    I've heard good things about the NS, but never tried it because it looked like it would take too long to get on and off (like in a gigging situation). Does it clip on and off or do you need to adjust every time?

    I've got capos all over the house, but the only ones I actaully use are the Planet waves NS. Every time I order something online, I add another one to my order - think I've got 4 of 'em now. :D

    I used to use a capo on my acoustic guitars once in a while, I liked the Planet Waves and have one. I prefer the Paige because you can just slide it over past the nut and leave it handy for when you need it. The planet waves is easy to use though, but you have to put it somewhere when you aren't using it.

    that looks pretty cool. I have used Shubbs for years, they work perfectly on my Fender guitars. I have two different sizes, one for the Tele and one for the Strat.

    But if I use them on other guitars with different neck profiles, they can be very impetuous, and spring off in the middle of a song.

    That's the only downside. It's held on/tensioned by turning a screw.. Takes seconds though not as quick as a Kyser.

    Though it isn't quick like a Kyser, it is easy to quickly get it tight enough not to buzz, but not so tight as it makes the notes go sharp. Easy to make small adjustments in tension.
    I like them too.

    G7 for electrics
    Kyser for acoustics....chubb nice, but, takes too long..
    I will look at planet wave.

    says they have low profile, so not sticking out as much

    The NS is a great capo. Whenever I use a Keyser, I find I have to adjust the tuning after putting the capo on. The problem is worse the higher up the neck I put it. The NS lets you apply just enough pressure without squeezing the strings hard enough to pull them sharp.

    I think this is about the best capo I've ever had, I use it on my Martin OM and have no problems at all with it...
