I see now. I thought he meant the rare markers were extraneous.
The multiplex tests has as many markers below M269 as "The Works," so they can be had for much less than a $200 test. They each test one the other doesn't, the last time I looked. They get most of them, so their R1b1c* is pretty much in accordnace with the two different trees.
If someone wants R1b1c* according to the trees (on nearly so), he would have to take the multiplex or "The Works," so FTDNA wouldn't be an option.
Actually what he said was that the testing path for R1b1c* at FTDNA was the
same as the multiplex, but less expensive, and without all the extraneous
markers. He also said the testing doesn't go any deeper, but neither does anyone
else unless you want to pay $200.
He was describing a product and company he was happy with. He was not, as
you said, pointing out the markers FTDNA did not test for nor whether the test

I don't think you followed everything. This had to do with the subclades
tested. FTDNA does not test the rare markers. However, James Carr brought up
the point that was missing. It really depends on whether they are worthwhile
Finding the info on their test is interesting. You go thru the haplogroup
tag on your personal page. The deep clad path for R1b1c* is the same as the
marlingen I got without the extraneous markers and costs less.( $75 ) They won't
get you deeper than that at the moment. But neither will anyone else unless
you want to spring for around $200. And their turn around time has been darn
