Benefits of stainless cluth line?

Hi,What are the benefits of having a stainless steel clutch line? Are they worth it from a performance point of view? Thanks,Steve.

Although I do agree with TheX, there are others that say that they can feel the difference. The braking will be more of a solid feel. Being on the street I couldn't tell any real difference but at that time I change levers, lines, and pads so there was a different feel. Mine is for looks though.

OP asked about clutch, not brakes.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

Shit, not enough coffee or maybe just aint paying attention. Thanks for the correction.

Now since I was corrected I will retract my statement and say I got them to match my brake lines.

Lol no problem. I've read opinions ranging from no change, to a lighter feel at the lever since more force generated at the MC goes towards activating the clutch instead of expanding the line, however slightly. That said, I've seen some bikes with hydraulically actuated clutches incorporate sections of rigid steel piping (similar to a car) in areas where flex isn't an issue.
