Default Putter Much Lighter Than Ordered

I received a Vibram Summit that I ordered as 170g. In another thread I whined about it feeling like a coffee can lid. Today I received a scale and the Summit weighs in at a scant 163.7g. I don't have much use for it as a putter at that weight, it floats around like that feather on Forrest Gump. With shipping it was $18.44.

If the right thing to do is suck it up that's fine, but what, if anything is reasonable to request from the vendor?

yes, you should be able to exchange. We'd you buy it?

Most people who run businesses tend to be reasonable. If you are, as well, it should be fine to exchange.

This is why I deal with Justin at communitydiscs.com. Any discs that he is unsure of the weight, he personally scale weighs and puts a sticker on the bottom with the scale weight. I have had this issue with various other stores, but never from Justin.

I recommend contacting the vendor before starting a thread about it.
But hey, that's just me.

Shopping at stores that weigh their own discs eliminates this problem. I'd try to exchange it for sure.

Logically, that's information we need. You said the price and that it was shipped to you and it was the wrong disc, so... you're welcome?
