Ti seat post and seat clamp. Trolls need not to reply.R600DuraAce

My Chrous Ti seat post developed a "groove," around the seat clamp location. I think Ti is too soft and I don't think the seat clamp is too tight. The seat post does not seem to be compromised. However, I am worrying about the frame, the seat clamp section. Too much "pinch" effect. I have a Alu frame. I am worry that too much flex in that area can ruin the frame. What do you think?

OK. I think I should get a new Alu seat post when I have the chance.
Maybe you can get a good deal on one at ebay!the bull

Maybe Al is even softer? What then?? Maybe you can find a tempered steel one on ebay.
