Is a lightweight capo for you? Maybe, or maybe not. Some people associate a certain amount of heft with quality, and feel that it is necessary to properly do the job. If that's you, then a lightweight capo is not for you. But for years Shubb has been aware of another school of thought, and people who have been removing mass from their Shubb capos in an attempt to reduce their weight. It's a matter of opinion and of choice; neither side is right or wrong.
If you feel that a lighter weight capo is to your liking, and that of your guitar, then the new Shubb Lite is the capo for you!
