Titanium Stem Bolts?

Hi all

Sorry if this is a stupid question and already been done to death but I’ve just got myself a new stem (Fizik R1) that has Ti bolts. I remember reading in the past that Ti bolts in a stem or any high stress area isn’t the best idea as they’re not that strong (I though Ti was perfectly strong enough?).

So are they OK in stems or will they snap and kill me? I’m a heavy rider at 105kg - 110kg so is the only reason I ask (and I’ve no experience of them in a stem either).
