its cast alluminum. So kind of a con. But for the price and no 12 ft drops its like running a stock stem. Most likely will slip here and their. id put money on it.

I ran the Subrosa Hold Tight stem, which is very similar, and had no troubles at all.

What evidence do you have that it will slip easily?

Probably that it is cast and not CNC'd.

Cast parts typically are lower cost to manufacture, making them lower cost but also lower quality.

This x1,000,000

I don't like Cast or Cold Forged stems. CNC is all i'll run.

I don't know but for the price and look, I'd definitely get it! How new is this? It has a recessed compression bolt top.

Yeah I know that, but I wouldn't of thought that it would have less knurling or anything that would make it more likely to slip. Easier to break yes, but I don't see why it would slip easier.
