I have a question about load limits for ballheads & tripods:

I ordered a Kirk BH-1 ballhead, which has a load limit of 50 lbs. I can't imagine loading enough photo gear on the ballhead to reach that limit. However, of all the tripods I have looked at, I have found only 1 tripod that matches that load limit. Even Gitzo does not have a tripod that has a load limit above 40 lbs. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance for any clarification.

Paul
