Pixapro PIKA200 Godox AD200 vs Speedlite Power Test

Out of curiosity I had to try a direct test and the results are as expected! Some ask with the advent of the PIKA if Speedlites are necessary?

The Test
Flash 2m from exposure meter, ISO100, direct, no bounce:

PIKA200 with fresnel (speedlite head) ƒ/22 - 2 stops more than PIKA/AD200PIKA200 with 120º reflector ƒ/16 ½ 580 II Speedlite with head zoomed to 35mm ƒ/11 - 2 stops LESS than PIKA/AD200

Pixapro Li-ion 580II Speedlite zoomed to 35mm which I understand is the equivalent to the fresnel head for the PIKA200 - nor sure what the bright spots are in the shadow - will need to investigate when I get time!

Pixapro PIKA200 with fresnel Speedlite head - I'm wondering if the bright areas in the shadows are related to the fresnel head construction as it's common to the two fresnel heads.
