Having used A-5s with the same stock design, I was already familiar with the feel. Under normal woodsball situations, the stock added stability and that extra degree of control when moving around or trying to steady your aim-point for sniping or longer ranged fire.
When in an urban scenario area, the stock can be retracted for ease of movement in the tighter confines of buildings, or for shooting around corners off-handed.
A side benefit I noticed with this stock - and this simply could be just me - was that if you had any reason to one-hand your marker, it would brace nicely against the forearm if you're upright and stretching your arm, or against the bicep if you're keeping your arm bent.
The one in-game drawback I noticed was that even with the extra little raise in the sights with the flatline shroud, you could not use the sights properly. This can be solved with a raised rail (with or without offset) sight, but it's harder to find one that will fit the accessory rail on the shroud.
I'd recommend this stock to anyone wanting something that's as flexible for gameplay as they are. If you're going to use the flatline, however, you may want to look at getting a more angled folding stock or a solid one with a slight cut-out for the mask to let you get your eyes more in line if you don't want to spend another ~$100 CDN on sight rails and optics.
