Default Off center hole in cymbal

I have a Sabian Metal Crash that I use on my practice kit. Since I bought it I have had an issue where it wont stay at the height I set it. I thought it was the stand, but it turns out the hole isn't cut dead center in the cymbal. I cant tell you how many times i have gone to hit it and just caught dead air. A couple of inches doesnt seem like a big deal, but trust me, its a bigger deal than you might think.

Anyway, I made a little video demonstrating what I am taking about. Anybody else ever experience this?

Both my 24" 2002 Ride and my 24" Twenty Deep Ride do this. Not sure why, both holes are centered.

Are you using the same felts and stand on the other cymbal? I have one that does that but only about a half an inch. I gave it one more degree, or tooth on the tilter, and the wight keeps it down in the same place. Not ideal, but I bought the cymbal used. And it sounds perfect...
