Unhappy What happened to NP sails ???

It used to be that a NP sail could be rigged to exactly its published stats.The given dimensions were spot on for a starting point and even the variation in tuning trim given was accurate.I`ve recently upgraded (I use the word almost sarcastically) from Searches to Alpha`s. Yep the sails feel great but no way on earth do any of them (mine at least) rig to the stats.
Eg my 4.7 states 405 luff and 167 boom.
I sail it on around 401 (+/- 1) and 169 (+/-1)
Its same story with my 5.4 !!!
Reckon sail would rip in 2 if I downhaulled it o 405 !!
Anybody else found same ???

Whats going on at NP ??
Missing Bjorn ???
