I agree with nonopr that if it says 240cm on the box then I expect to be able to use it at 240cm, to only anticipate it to work at some arbitrary length short of 240cm just seems not to be logical to me.
Could you tell us which boom brands you are too scared to use at more than 75% of the maximum so I can avoid buying them?

100% agree sailquick.
If it says its a 180-240 boom then i expect it to work properly anywhere in that range. Anything else is unaceptable.
