I guess I should have spent more time on that comment. Magura, Formula, and Hope are all nicely interchangeable. I mounted up the Dominion brakes using plastic and aluminum Magura clamps (holes are quite a bit larger for the coarse hardware) and they technically work (the Hayes hardware is much smaller). Other clamps I tried didn't work cleanly (some modification would have been necessary) so I am not comfortable referring to them as interchangeable from the perspective of an reader. If I thought they were interchangeable, to this standard, I would have noted it along with the other brands. My perspective here is that someone may go out and spend their hard-earned money on something (none of these mounts are cheap) on my recommendation and then it will not work to their satisfaction. Put another way, I modify stuff all the time to make different stuff work together but I don't call those products interchangeable or compatible if you can't simply and cleanly bolt them together out of the box. Hope that's helpful.
