We use them at work on the f650/f750 trucks. I have never seen one leak but they can be a little bit of a pain to remove.

We cut them off with a razor blade. IT takes a couple of passes because we try not to damage the hose so we can reuse it.

What do you think of these for a high performance / circle track application?

I really like the "even clamping" concept and thought they were cool when I first saw them, but I think for a on and off all the time application (radiator may get removed every 3rd or 4th week) it may just be a waste of money compared to the good ole worm clamp?
