Default WFL Bass Drum lugs Sizes

Ok so I bought a 22x14 bass drum with Rogers lugs but the shell has the inner mahogany ply like that of a WFL. So I wanted to get WFL lugs for it rather than the beaver tails, but the wfl's don't fit they are to small. There are no extra holes for the lugs either. Can anyone explain what's going on here? Thanks for the help.

If it is a WFL, maybe it was single tension? Tube lugs could be cool instead of the Rogers...

Boom, what is the hole spacing, center-of-hole to center-of-hole....?
This might give a clue...from the angle of your picture, it's tough to tell, to me anyhow.
Thanks

Looks like a early 60's Slingerland shell to me. Curious if a Slingerland bass drum lug fits that hole spacing. But the spur mount holes don't look Slingerland.

I think the WFL lugs you have are for the Tom drum..
The bass drum lugs are bigger..
Get the exact size ..hole Center to hole Center..
I'll measure the bass drum lugs on my WFL..
