About the MODEL
3

We call it "for banjo" but we're quick to add "also fits most mandolins and bouzoukis." We might throw in tenor guitar, and a number of other 4-string instruments.

fretboard radius

The great majority of banjo fretboards are flat. Radiused banjo fretboards only came into use within the past 15 years or so, and still account for relatively few instruments. If you're not sure whether your fretboard is radiused or not, it probably is flat.

Because of the narrowness of the neck, gauge of strings, resilience of the capo's rubber material, etc. the radiused and flat model 5 capos can be used almost interchangeably on some instruments. If you happen to get your hands on the wrong one, there's a pretty good chance that it will work OK, anyway.
