It's everything the original Shubb Capo is, and more! Crafted of stainless steel, its roller mechanism provides ultimately smooth operation. When the Shubb Capo was first introduced in 1980, capos were elevated to a whole new level. In 1998 the Shubb Deluxe pushed the envelope again. How could the original Shubb capo be improved? Material: Stainless steel resists wear and nicks. It will look as beautiful years from now as it does today. Ergonomics: The restyled lever is easier to handle while opening and closing. Design: The new roller further reduces wear, while adding smoothness to the opening and closing action. The roller engages in a track, ensuring precise alignment. Geometry: The closing action is more uniform, closing with the same feel and requiring less adjustment between thicker and thinner parts of the neck.
