The Traveler 1540 has 4 sections and is rated at 4.5kg

The Traveler 1550 has 5 section and is rated at 2kg

The Titanium traveler is identical to the 1540 (I understand), other than the Titanium furniture, but is rated at about 8kg. What is it which gives it the extra torsional stability which essentially makes it a Gitzo series 2 tripod?
