That's BS. We pay a lot of money for these make-ups and wait a long time and Alden ships incorrect specs, and they and their vendors just basically shrug their shoulders and say "oh well - it is what it is - take it or leave it". I can personally recall several times this has happened over the past 4-5 years.
I know if I pulled that with my boss/client the response would be quite a bit different.
Return in honestly you don't seem happy and justifying the purchase by keeping them is unlikely to make you feel any better about it. This happened to me recently and I elected to keep them as I actually preferred the variance. Alden seems to have more trouble than usual reading spec sheets as of late.
Sorry for the misquote saz.
