aluminum clutch plates

anyone ever tried them?? besides the obvious less rotating mass and probably a little better gas mileage. What's the reliablity like?? and those who have tried them how did it go. I figure with half the weight of steel plates and for only a shade over 100 bucks you can't go wrong.

we tried them in early 2008 on a racebike,
we found them "grabby" and quickly replaced them with the original steels.

Not sure how they would hold up to everyday road use.
