Gsport uniguard

Anyone got any negative feedback on these or do they live up to the hype?

I'm really impressed with mine, no negatives at all. Decent price point, strong and fully reliable.

I had to do some substantial Dremeling on mine to keep the chain from hitting it, but I love the dumb little thing.

Are you running some kinda of atypical setup mitch? Like 10t, loose chain or bulky chain?

Or are you running it on the inside of the dropout instead of the outside as it's intended?

Edit: Let me apologize I realized after posting this may be off topic -

I was looking into this a while back.
Gsport/Eclat

from what I gather the Gsport Uniguard is a thinner metal and narrower base than the Eclat Overguard
I went with the Eclat.

For Eclat Overguard
5/5
Great guard, no problems. Fits very well and is thick.
It's opposite for me and I don't have a problem with how it looks.
I was worried about how it would feel being a bit further out there for grinds/would it hang up on anything and for me: no.
I've never hung up on it and don't notice a change in sensation or feeling on my opposite side. I do however run an inner guard on my regular. Makes taking the wheel on / off way easier.

Sorry I disappeared.  I don't think my setup is atypical--GSport ratchet 9t in a BSD Beverage frame. I run the guard on the outside of the dropout. My chain isn't super tight--I hate super tight chains, but it isn't flopping around. I ground out the front portion to give it more clearance around the chain.

The hub you run can make a difference, Joytech clones typically have the chainline 13mm inward from the inside of the dropout, Ratchet  is 11.5mm. The Antigram is probably the same given it's pretty much a 17mm version of the Ratchet

I still run a Ratchet and I run my chain loose as fuck so I might have to shape a Uniguard by the sounds of it...

I run a small strip of duct tape on the inside of the guard for chain-muting purposes. My chain couldn't be any looser and this has worked fine for me!

I should probably mention that you do need to have at least a little space or lip behind your axle to sink the anti-rotational pin.

I used to over-clock my wheel and I was not able to accommodate the guard.

you might need access to a chain breaker and room to take a (half)link out of your chain.

Mine seems great so far. Ran it on non-drive on one bike that has a Hazard V3 with female axle (so no other guard fits) and on the drive side of my Sunday Cyclone. On the Cyclone on my S&M Randy Brown (I'm guessing dropout slots have a slight angle?) it barely rubs the chain. Can hear it when pedaling but it doesn't bind or anything. Been meaning to grind it down a hair but I don't run 4 pegs often so I haven't gotten around to it.

I also drilled the hole for the anti spin pin 1mm larger and removed it in favor of screwing the Odyssey J-Peg Light anti spin pin through the guard into the peg. Now neither of them can spin.

I put my nuts on that axle before it shipped, FYI
