I don't know if they have changed much, but a few years back I tried one and the clamp was a wee bit flexy.

Someone mentioned how to sort that, so if these new ones can be sorted or don't need it they are a decent buy at £30, and with a lifetime guarantee?

I have one, they're good enough. Easy to over-tighten some of the bolts, but they cope with most jobs /bikes pretty well.

Make that 'I have two'. I love a bargain, they've improved how the clamp is fitted now too!
Bonus.

Mine fell to bits in 6 months of use. Wouldn't recommend them at all.
