Many booms have marks locating the "center of effort" which is somewhat conflicting with the fact that you can extend them by 50cm. These are useful to adjust the lines equally on both sides. However you may feel good with a shift of a few cm, and notice it only after sailing. Such shift may also be desirable when going up- and downwind always on the same line (up- closer to the mast and down- further away).
