Default Penn Fathom on stand-up rod real seat issue

Good evening everybody. I recently purchased two 6' stand-up rods and attempted to mount my brand new penn fathom 30 2 speed LD reels and noticed the real foot did not sit flat on the stand-up rod reel seat. The real foot is a concave shape while the seat is straight and rounded. The reel clamp did not fit either. Has anybody mounted these reels to 20-50ish lb rods with the same issue? I was able to return the rods but have no clue what kind or brand of rod I should be looking for. I have pics but not enough posts to post them. Thanks in advance!

What rod did you try them on. Take the reel to the tackle store and try them on various rods

I tried them on everything with a slick but. The guy at tackle direct in NJ was even surprised the reel seat was bent like that from the factory. They even compared it to another fathom they had in stock and it looked exactly the same. The squall and international real seats were flat. I think I might massage it with a hammer and see how it works out.

I was able to mount some new fathoms to star stand ups and penn ally stand ups without a problem.
