Default Boom length

Hi fellows,
is it recommended to use a boom on the full length range or is it better to use only the lower range.
What I mean is: would you advice to use a 190-240 cm boom on a sail that requires 238 cm boom.
Booms tend to become rather soft on their upper limit and also the strength could be questionable, since only a short part of the tubes is intersecting.

Rgds,
G
