  • Causa
    The left and right orientation of the trial was incorrectly etched on one side. when the instrument is rotated about the axis of the handle 180 degrees to view the other side, the etch on the handle now shows r on the same side as the keel marked lm and the l on the same side as the keel marked rm. this is incorrect. please note that the keel is not etched on this side by design.
