Teflon pads and perfect radius!

I got a set of Thalia Teflon pads. They sound very lively... and my capo always matches my fretboard radius! These do wonders for acoustic or electric guitars!

Experimenting with tones!

If you want to experiment on different tones create by different materials of the fret pads, the Teflon option is good for you. It creates a brighter, more transparent, crispy tone than the standard rubber. Both materials work very well, it really depends on your taste. Different pieces may work better with a different fret pad! Keep trying!

Better than sex ... at least better than sex with me (Teflon upgrade)

Just before Xmas, I bought 2 Thalia capos (one was a present) ... both Blue Abalone w the black finish, as well as the Teflon tuning kit upgrade for both. Both capos were so gorgeous I had to spend days agonizing over which one to give away. The Teflon upgrade does improve the sound (at least on my friend's & my guitars): clearer tone, sweeter, slightly more volume. Every guitar is different, tho, so for some the standard rubber might be the ticket.

Teflon is worth the upgrade for acoustic

First, beautiful capo. Even my wife was oooo that's pretty. However, playing the standard pads did muffle rhe strings just a tiny bit. I thought my Shubb capo sounded better on my Takamine.
Then I thought to myself, "Hey self, try those Teflon inserts instead!" I did and it's amazing. Super crisp sound, more flexibility on capo placement. I wouldn't get one without it.

Something to get used to for sure

I’m giving this four stars frankly because I personally am undecided but it’s not a bad product in any sense and even though I’m not [yet] fully happy with it, it’s not the fault of the product or design. It’s definitely something to get used to. For those who have used a rubber grip capo for while, this will take some time to adjust to. Because of the very nature of the pad (teflon), the slightest jar against the capo will make an adjustment. So if you’re a cowboy chorder (most notably with B7) you are going to be a little frustrated with it. However, it does what its advertised to do. It allows the strings to move freely under the tension of the capo allowing for bends and such that you wouldn’t be able to achieve with a rubber grip. However, there’s an easy win to this; with Thalia now allowing us to order single pads, I feel it’s totally worth getting a teflon pad and playing with it to find the right songs in which this style works. The right tool for the right job. It’s going to take me some time still to find my sweet spot with this pad, but I am not upset with the build quality (which I come to expect with Thalia product) nor the intent of the product. I’m sure that once I retrain myself a bit more, this would easily fall into a 5 star, but new-to-teflon users should be aware that there IS a learning curve on how your left hand interacts with the fretboard and capo/nut of the guitar.
