If the boom does not work properly at it's maximum length of 240cm then why would the boom maker state it's maximum length is 240cm when it should only be used at say 235cm as it's maximum length so if they stated that the boom now had a maximum length of 235cm would it be good to use it at 235cm or would that maximum length now be questionable and the boom would only be safe to use at 230cm. Surely when the boom manufacturer says the boom has a max length of 240cm it means it functions properly at that length? Or should all the boom manufacturers change the max length of their booms to %75 of what it is now immediately so that it is correct and safe?
