I've owned a number of these guys from very early to current production,
and I haven't noticed any difference in the manner or degree of tightening
required.  I suspect the old one you used was defective or worn out.

The most sought-after of the ball heads is the older large ball head, which
had a reversible thread so it would work on both European and International
thread tripod sockets.
