They're really quite soft. You can tell this by the way they close up 
with use. You occasionally have to spread them again, so they will 
slide all the way down the tapered battery posts again.

I agree completely about the aftermarket aluminum clamps, however. I 
never saw one fail as quickly as yours but I also never saw one last 
as much as a year. All mine are still the originals, and I've never 
found any replacements that had nearly the same quality.
