Description

The newest wing capper on the market is the Gloria, made by the Ferrari Group in Italy.  We love this capper because it is easy to use, has a smooth capping action, a magnet in the capping head to hold crown caps, and solid metal jaws to firmly grasp the bottle. Fits 26 mm (the most popular size) crown caps on standard beer bottles.

It does the job. It is not a pleasure to use.
This came with my MoreBeer starter kit. I've capped 4 batches now, so just about 200 bottles with this - much more than I had expected when I first looked at it. This capper relies on plastic-on-plastic and plastic-on-metal bearing surfaces. The whole assembly is rather loose, and it feels like it's getting worse over time. I have begun wearing gloves while using this, because it's really easy to strip the skin off your knuckles with the force required, especially since by the time you're bottling, your hands have likely been wet for some time and your skin is a bit softer. If you don't have a LOT of arm strength to keep it steady, expect to ruin a few caps when the thing rotates sideways instead of going straight down.

It's incompatible with some bottle shapes (Stella Artois, Modelo, and some other bottles with strange necks do not work well) BUT it does the job. Considering the starter kit was a hair over $100, this is pretty dang good. Will definitely be purchasing a benchtop capper to save my knuckle skin and the fear of the whole thing camming sideways and shattering a bottle neck.

Came with my kit, replace it as soon as you can.
This capper was part of the kit I got a few years ago and honestly, I don't know why I didn't replace it sooner.

Getting a seal on the caps is almost impossible and it seems to dislike most bottle shapes. It never caps on the first try.

Getting a bench capper now... I hope the experience isn't nearly as frustrating with a bench capper.

Cheap plastic. Get something else.
This came with my MoreBeer! Starter kit. One handle broke after maybe 6 bottles. Had to use pliers to finish the bottling. Seems like cheap plastic product.

Horrible Product!
I had my first bottling day yesterday and this capper ruined my experience. I broke 4 bottles and I was being extra cautious. It slips to the side and the metal collar kept falling out. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who has been disappointed in this product. It gives me hope that something better is out there. I was almost ready to give up brewing because of this horrible product.

Came with my starter kit
Absolutely terrible experience with this capper. It would frequently slip when capping and after about 30 bottles the metal ring that actually crimps the caps just fell off. Feels very cheap and I will certainly be getting a different capper for the next time I brew.

More beer is great but this capper is not
Buy this capper if you want more pain than joy during your capping session. The handles aren't aligned so the capper slips off the neck of bottles when you push them down.
