One main problem with the G7 capo (I have owned one for years) is that it is hard to "park" anywhere, unless you have a music stand or shelf nearby. My other capos (including my Kysers and Planet Waves Tri-action) are easy to park on the headstock or mic stand. Also, due to its sleek design and finish, it can be very slippery if you have any sweat on your hands at all. Love the tuning stability of the G7, just wish it was a bit easier to hang onto and park. I find my tri-action to have just as stable of tuning, while addressing the other issues... and they can be purchased for $15 or less.
