A general question. How are ballheads tested for capacity, and specifically, why are the Markins rated at so high a ratio of weight to capacity?

Capacities of similar size heads:

Markins Q3=13.6 oz, 65 lb cap.

RRS BH-40=15.5 oz, 18 lb. cap.

Acratech Ultimate= 15 oz., 25 lb.

Are the markins really that much better?
