There's a difference which doesn't necessarily correlate to price.

I broke the original front saddle clamp bolt in 3400 miles and stronger replacement in 1700 on a Velo Orange two bolt post where they were too small.

My Nitto S65 required 16 NM to hold its angle adjustment.

One of those required excess seat clamp pressure to maintain height.

I broke the cradle on a Campagnolo titanium seatpost.

After that I gave up and bought an old 1996-1997 Campagnolo SP10-RE seatpost using the same clamp assembly as the venerable C-Record aero post I used before trying various round seatposts.

Those are true to size and maintain their adjustment with minimal torque on the saddle clamp bolt.
