I really like using my capo for my Lanikai, especially for singing. I'm getting a Fluke with plastic fretboard-- will it chew up the plastic? I know a lot of people have talked about the fretboard's gradual wearing from just fingers.

BTW, I use a Kyser clip-on capo: http://www.thepickinparlor.com/Kyser_KBMB_Clamp_On_Banjo_Mandolin_Capo_p/kbmb.htm

i think you should be alright, i have a crappy old uke with a plastic fretboard that i use a full sized Kyser capo on and it hasnt seemed to effect it in any way... just remember not to leave it on the uke for extended periods.
