I've been using Guru Stands for about as long as they have been made , they have never dropped any of my AGD's. I also love the flat for storage design.
I have had one for probably 10 years. Used at many events and always works great. Pod holder is awesome too.
I have had plenty of gun stands over the years. I have even made some from wood or PVC. They all have seemed bulky or cumbersome to use or even just took up to much room in my gear bag. Some of the things I like the most about guru gun stands is: they are light weight, they take up hardly any room in your gear bag and you never have to worry about your marker falling. Overall such a great stand that the kids team I coach decided to get them for all there players.
My entire team had them... they save a ton of space and wont mark any of your equipment
