The point of using weaker (softer) materials is that they will deform and absorb energy so the important parts don't get damaged. Think of a car shell. Wheels, bumpers, engine, pannels all of that will become damaged and fall off in order to prevent damage to the inner structure. Same thing is with rear grab. You don't want a really tough one because the force will transfer forward and break or damage the next weakest thing which is probably sub frame or bolts that are holding it. Hit it enough times and you'll end up with a banana raptor. Just my opinion.
