    I'm currently, and relatively happily, using a Snark. Been eying up the Planet Waves with it's smaller foot print.

    Comments and experiences...???

    FWIW: I have 3 clip-on tuners - a broken Snark, and a two working Korg clip-ons that live in gig bags as backups. But I use either my TC Electronics Polytune mini or Korg Pitchblack petal tuners. But, and I've read good review about the Planet Waves clip-on.

    I recently got rid of my Fender pedal tuner and went with the blue Snark. I'm happy with it so far.

    I have a Snark and it works great.
    I have an older headstock type that I forget the name of.
    It worked fine, but the Snark is better and easier to read.

    Planet Waves Mini here. Very reliable so far, stays put even with jumping around, and tracks well (Low B or B flat works best with the 12th fret harmonic IME).

    I've got a Deltalab CT10 and a black Snark. I think the CT10 is easier to read than the Snark (whole display lights up green when note is in tune).

    I have a Snark. It only sees rehearsal and home use. I don't trust any of the clip on tuners in loud environments.

    I have three Planet Waves minis and a few Snarks of various types, red, blue, Super Tight, the new low profile one and a blue conventional style Snark.

    I like the Snarks far better than the PW minis. Faster, more accurate, more stable.

    The Snark is where it's at. If you use Dunlop Dual Design Straplocks you can attach the Snark to the button and it hides behind the strap and works perfectly. Genius? I think so too.

    Snark... got the little one that tucks behind the headstock. You can barely see it from the front.

    Intelli IMT500. Does the job fine (but I use a Korg DT-10 for gigs).
