Glider Professional Rolling Capo

Perfect for seamless key changes, this rolling capo moves smoothly across the fretboard so you can easily get to your desired fret.
No screws, clamps, or rubber bands to slow you down. With the touch of your thumb, you sail The Glider up or down the fingerboard. With your hand, just simply pull it down or push it up the neck to the desired fret. The Glider rolls smoothly and the guitar stays in tune! For uninterrupted playing and seamless key changes, simply push or pull the Glider from fret to fret with your thumb on the back roller. When you're not using it, simply store it by rolling it up over the nut. When you need it again, roll it back out.

Say goodbye to tuning problems. The Glider's Equi-Glide dual tensioning system levels the capo for even pressure on the neck so you stay in tune, period. Simply remove the end cap and center the Glider on the fretboard (it doesn't have to sit on the fret - making it kinder to fret construction and there's more room to wrap your thumb over the neck). The back roller centers the Glider and is kinder and gentler on fine lacquer finishes. The Glider - make it part of your musical tool kit!

Features

- Equal tension springs distribute uniform pressure on both sides of the fingerboard.
- Two Rollers: The top roller glides over the strings and frets the guitar. The back roller cradles and cushions the neck, centering The Glider so the guitar stays in tune.

"perfect for acoustic fingerstyle and alternate tunings."
if it gets broken or lost, i will definitely but one again.
Sound
to my surprise, i didn't have any intonation issues when i use it on my OM cutaway and dreadnought size guitars. a weapon is only as good as the one who uses it as it takes sometime to glide it perfectly to make a song seamless. it is so much easier to roll the front side using the palm of the right hand compared to moving the back side with your thumb. especially if you want to store it over the nut. if some strings are not properly pressed (like when there is a fret buzz or overpressed which makes the note a little sharp), just press or nudge the front rubber. (trust me, it's so easy). very nice for steel string guitar fingerstyle.
Features
what only worries me is the life span of the two springs of the capo. not quite sure if it can withstand abuse. other than that, everything is perfect.
Ease of Use
use your right hand and roll the front side if you want to store it over the nut, or if you want to move more than one fret up or down. its ok to move the backside only if you want to move it one fret up. (except from the nut to the first fret)
Quality
not so shiny as i expected like what the pictures show.
Value
a little expensive. but i was willing to invest for it because it fits my playing style.
The Wow Factor
definitely.
