After discovering this and watching several videos with reviews on youtube I was wondering how it could work for me. A while later I was buying one.
Hands on I use this capo for acoustic guitar. I think this capo will work great for indie music and for arpeggios. I did not try it on electric guitar because it fits my needs well for acoustic.
The capo is relatively easy to install but sure I don't want to leave a mark on the neck (it comes with a soft leather in the pincer grips) but just in case I'm careful and no marks on the neck whatsoever.
What I like most of this capo is the fact it gives you instant inspiration due to it's fabulous flexibility to create alternate tunings. That alone is worth because it's like having different stringed instruments in one just changing the position on the neck and the finger handles. It sounds clear and no buzz if it's properly in place. Also you can adjust the width of the finger handles to fit exactly your guitar.
More, you can even use more than one capo if you want to go further on experimental tunings.
PROS: A versatile tool and refreshing for experimented guitar players. Great tonal possibilities.
CONS: Not the best option to use as a standard capo because it requires a while to put on the neck. It's kinda tricky to play comfortably very close to the capo.

since almost 2 years not leave me!
simple and well made the plastic pad are a little cheap but hold up well over time
I'll see to take a second to put me in touch open without the keys! or create improbable deviations for solo + drone and another chorus!
