I completely agree with that. A person can get good at doing reps but that doesn't mean that they can be good at max singles [and visa-versa].
Using myself and BtB as an example; I can squat over 300 lbs for 20 reps, I've gotten good at doing them, but my max is not that high. BtB on the other hand has a large max, but is not that impressive in the 20 rep squats. We automatically think that one would apply to the other, but that is not the case.
