Top critical review
Probably a knock off? Don't buy yet, read all reviews!

(For reference, I am a professional musician and play live gigs 4-6 times a week. Most of the songs I play are capo'ed and have been using my latest JD capo for about 1 year. Recently, that capo has been showing signs of its last functional days, therefore I decided to buy a new one.)
I ordered 4 of these (2 for me and 2 for one of my bandmates), and somehow none of the 4 capos fitted my Taylor acoustic guitar. My fellow bandmate seemed to fit them on his Takamine after some struggling. I have read the reviews and have seen how some people have received a non-JD package, but mine came in "original" JD packaging.
I have bought all my previous capos directly on my local music store, but wanted to try ordering online this time (seemed a bit cheaper via Amazon). I compared my previous, beaten, and old JD capo to the 4 new ones and they have DEFINITELY not the same shape, quality, nor strength as the old one. As other reviews point out, either the high or low E's will always fret after placing the capos. DO NOT BUY!
EDIT: Just noticed that I cannot report this directly to Amazon since I cannot return the item, I am outside of the US and order via courier to my country. So hopefully someone in Amazon gets to read this and does something about it. To me, these items are worthless and of no use by now.
