    Mine did the same but fortuatly it was under waranty. The NET's stronger sand cast head also fits with minimal mods. Check the Clasified section on the 2.2 forum, Atom X usually has things like this for sale. I'd also double check with AtomX or Vocky what needs to be changed for a direct swap with the stock Foam cast 2.2 head.
