which Rocna said they were specifying and building their anchors was not the same as what was tested by the lab.
Then there came the admitance by Rocna that some in late 2009-2010 "slipped through" the QC.
Retailers have been pretty good about refunding money
to clients who have concerns.
Rocna has not addressed the issue at all on thier website or otherwise. The tests were done some months ago now.
This is not the way most of us would view a reputable company dealing with a quality or out of spec issue.
No one is questioning that the design is bad, only that they are charging
a premium price
, and what is delivered is not what is advertised.
