Default Battery and discharger question

I was always curious about this.
If there are so many battery manufacturers out there that discharge their batteries at 35 amps, why aren't there any dischargers (other than the Spintek that I am selling) out there that discharge at 35amps? I have a great Integy discharger but it only discharges at 30 amps?

Why no 35 amp dischargers?

Higher discharge current in the matching process is better cause it weeds out weak cells.

Under normal usage, there isn't really a reason to have to discharge at 35amps linear. It's pretty harsh on the cells. There are 35amp linear (dont' confuse it for pulse discharge) dischargers. Competition electronics T-35 series all do 35amps linear!..
