Bjørn's assessment was discounted by several individuals. Notably, Leonard Shepherd said in this forum that "the Nikon collar does everything it should" on 25 Oct 2007 and that Bjørn did not understand "the physical parameters that apply to testing tripod collars", in a post on 27 Oct 2007.

Leonard the Insurance Salesman had been making that claim for at least 6 years before that.  Earl Landgrebe once said, “Don't confuse me with the facts. I've got a closed mind” -- that's our Lenny.

I thought it would be worthwhile to revisit the subject of tripod collar dynamic stiffness, and do a little more in-depth investigation, given the greater sensitivity of today's cameras, with their increased pixel density, to camera shake.

Congratulations on doing a comprehensive test, but all the science I needed was seeing the photos from people willing to pay extra for the aftermarket collars.
