Evans heads don't fit Ludwig hoops?

New to Ludwig, recently bought a breakbeats kit. I've tried a slew of different evans heads and none of them seem to fit the Ludwig hoops, even the bass drum hoops had to be manipulated. The only drum.that doesn't give me problems is the snare, which I upgraded to dfd 2.3mm hoops so it proves its the Ludwig hoops.

I've got the bass drum sounding good but no matter what I do or how high I tune the toms the head Is still slack and wrinkled in areas and just gives a dead papery 'fwap' sound.

Here's a different thread that may help a little. The collar on Evans heads are shaped differently.

New set of Gibraltar 2.3mm hoops fixed the problem immediately and, as an added bonus, help reduce the excessive ring on this drum without choking it so double win
