Sea star helms

What's the difference between a pro and non pro helm? As far as I can tell they all have lock valves so must be balanced? So only obvious difference is the pressure

Standard helm can use unbalanced ram and is 1000psi valved. The pro helm is 1500psi valved and can only be used with a balanced system.
There are also different capacities
