Just to bear out Wayne's comments.

Here is some capacity measurements I recently made on a range of 3S 2200mAh packs I happen to have. All were tested under identical conditions at a low rate. The absolute measured values are a bit too low as the mAh meter readings needed calibrating but they can be compared relatively.

"New" are all less than a few months old and have all had some flight use.
"Old" are over year old and have been used a lot.

The Flightmax is over 4 years old and wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding now - it is struggling to be a 10C pack. It has huge IR compared with the others.

But it still has the highest actual capacity at moderate rates of all these packs. It's also the lightest.
