Sphere Clamp ring....

>Hello,

So having seen a Soren Berger Demo recently at our wood turning club and reading an article in a recent copy of More Wood turning, I'm curious if there's a reason the clamp rings are made of metal? Or would something like a Piece of PVC work? It appears in the More Woodturning article that there is a sharp edge on the clamp to assist in the holding, but I'm not positive if that's the reason for metal over something else? Anyone have experience or opinion on this?
