I am getting conflicting information from Aputure ...

I am getting conflicting information from Aputure support, vendors and resources. Is this really compatible with the amaran 200x S? It weights 4.94 lb while all other lights in Aputure’s compatibility guide are less than 3 lb. Light Dome full size is not listed as compatible in the guide. Will it sag due to the weight and damage the Bowen S mount?
