Yes, I see. A shame.

Not really. I'm loving the photoclam, and much cheaper than the markins

I'm talking about the ball head diameter, which is the prime consideration for stability and lack of drooping. The PC diameter in your ballhead is 36mm; in the M10, it's 44mm, that's a big difference. The Markins ball even on their smallest head, the Q3t Traveler is 38mm in diameter.

You get what you pay for. But I'm glad it's working for you.

I dont doubt you for one second, and I was aware of all that when I purchased. The photoclam is meeting my needs however
