I thought most were designed to kick up once a certain amount of pressure was applied.

The trollomatic is supposed to but the darn thing looks like its made out of plastic, other ones have a sacrificial pin that snaps in the event of hitting the throttle, Id have to carry a ton of those pins lol

Looks like its built to deflect the thrust if you leave it down and hit the throttle, have you done this? if so, any damage to the unit?
You are correct.
The plate portion is hinged in the middle on a fairly heavy spring. If you throttle up and forget to pull the release, the bottom half of the plate pivots back to keep the whole thing from bending/breaking. You'll figure it out pretty quick that you forgot to pull the release. It kinda kills your holeshot.
