Truss rod adjustment on MIM Player seems too easy?

I needed to make some adjustments on my 2020 MIM Player Tele to get rid of some relief. I’ve done this before and there was always some “fight” in the adjustment as far as how easy that truss rod nut would turn. However, on this guitar it seems way easier to turn. I did a 1/4 turn with very little resistance. Should I be worried about a broken truss rod in this thing? I’m the original owner and it was the first time in 2 years it needed an adjustment.

I would not worry about the 'stiffness' of the nut (unless it's really floppy/wobbly), but rather about the fact that turning the nut actually has an effect on the neck bow.

It did indeed have an effect on the bow in the neck, so that’s a relief (pun intended; please don’t block me). Thanks! Just never had one turn this easily in 24 years of playing!

Nope, nothing to be concerned about.
