So, no? You have no experience just a very negative opinion of a product you have never used?Except for the fact it is yet another piece of detritus to snaggle up in your pocket and that which could easily be supplanted by simply using your pedal against any kerb or slightly elevated object.
AKA - A kickstand in another name. Or, at best, a conductor's wand, or worst, a mad dog strking stick.
All puns aside - if you're riding a road bike, you don't need a kickstand. The only time you should be astride your bike is if you are getting refreshment at the 7-11 (kerbs abound) or the bike is set in your abode.
