I can't help but evaluate things for long term usage. Most spring based capos will likely last plenty long. It's just that in principle, there's really nothing to wear out on these, especially since they moved from the sliding rubber piece to a roller. They're just a cam system with no parts to break or wear out. From a practical standpoint, it probably doesn't matter. In principle... I just can't help but rate them above a spring clamp design :)
I'd say this is the most inexpensive 'decent for a pro musician' capo there is. Until they come up with an affordable one that gets *completely* out of my way (all capos seems to bug my fret hand, to an extent, when I'm playing certain standard chords, as I end up right up against it), this is what I'll be using, practice, stage, recording.
Bonus: The S1 Stainless Steel model is made in the USA.

It's not quite as easy to operate one-handed as the G7th, and a quick slide to a different position on the neck for a mid-song key change isn't really possible. Against that is the brighter tone (if, as said, I'm not imagining it), and slightly lower price.
On balance, if one-handed operation is important to you, I'd recommend the G7th. If you're a one-song, one-position player, go for the Shubb. They're both seriously good capos, so don't agonise!
IMPORTANT: the 12 string version works well on 6-string guitars with wider, radiused fingerboards; and when capoing high up (above the 5th fret) on 6 & 12 string guitars. It's not so good with the lower frets on a 12 string guitar as the geometry makes it hard to clamp the lower octave strings without applying a lot of pressure - not good for strings or frets. The standard 6 string model is much more effective on frets 1-4, with the 12-string model working better from fret 5 and upwards. With both capos you'll have (nearly) all bases covered!
