Anybody has tried this on their setup ?

Just curious, cause it's a fairly cheap way to save a few g's...

I am on my way building up a winter bike right now and ordered one of those.
Sorry - no feedback yet, and I am taking some vacation this fall, so it might take a while before I have any first hand experience. BUT, I can't see that there should be anything wrong with it?

Ultegra 6600 is supposed to be around 104g (31.8mm clamp).

KCNC clamp is 15g (the Braze-on Shimano clamp is around 30g).

With a DA 7800 Braze-on it shoud come at 74+15= 89g
With DA 7900 Braze-on it would be around 68+15= 83g

dont know what to write for a review.. its held my front der in place for a few months :)
and is cheap/light.. I bought it because I had a der with the wrong size clamp and it was the best option to change that :)

It works, light and not expensive.....probably the best option before jumping into a BTP or Parlee carbon front der. clamp. Forgot...they come in colors too!
