Default NOTIFICATION 16-11-04 canopy strut upgrade???

I just installed the new and "improved" struts (the ones with the metal ends) and am unhappy with the power of the struts. The previous struts would cushion the opening so if I didn't hang on to the canopy it would open to its max softly but the new ones are weaker and allows the canopy to open with an uncomfortable rate stopping at the limits with a thunk.

Has anyone else had this result? Did I get a bad set of struts?

Thanks in advance.
