XL Big Green Egg Hinge

I've noticed in some pictures some of the models have beefed up looking hinges but the XL doesn't. Or at least mine doesn't. What's the deal with this?

    The XL has a "different" hinge than all other models because of it's size.  Don't know that it's any less "beefed up"?

    The hinge allows the dome to go up and also move backwards. It is a different design than all the other sizes. The mini has one that is very close now.
