I have had one on my bike for a year or so. I have the XL 170mm version. It works great. As others have mentioned, you need to check the pressure before the initial install and then check it every couple of weeks or months.

Yes the stock lever works but isn't that great. I have used it with
1. PNW Loam Lever
2. One Up Composite Lever
3. Specialized Lever

Worked great with all of those levers.

The lever sucks, but I've been running by dropper for 3 years, and never a problem.

The current levers very good, vast improvement in the old one.

Mine just turned 1 yr old. More than 3000km and works as it should. It gave me trouble once, but turned out that I accidentally increased cable tension and it would very slowly drop when seated. The current lever is fine, not sexy but works without issues, so not worth upgrading. Bear in mind that only the XL models have valves to adjust pressure.

So far it's one of my best vfm bike related purchases, along with shimano M520 pedals ????

I just got the 150mm for Christmas. From reviews and comments on this thread it seems like I'm gonna enjoy a fairly hassle free dropper. Since I didn't pay for it, if the lever does turn out to be a dud, it won't pain me much to purchase something swankier. Saweeeet.
