One is about $2 and one is about $5.

Every style of clamp is cheaper if you get them by the box , not the each.

Since spares are nice,,,,,

my 2c.
any type of clamp can fail. imo the biggest thing is using the correct style clamp for the application. you cannot use a normal worm clamp on silicone hose with out the risk of it cutting into the hose. that's why they make clamps with a extended band on the inside to shield the hose from the worm screw area. also intended operating psi will dictate what should be used. take boost pipes for example. on a cat 3500 series engine it uses 4 turbos feeding into 2 6" pipes. they use silicone connections with double ct clamps per side. and with 40lb of boost a single clamp would not hold very long before the hose pulled out from under the clamp. also keep in mind thermal expansion/contraction. t bolt clamps work very good but the ones with out the tension spring will not give and you could potentially split a hose once the component comes up to operating temp.
