Duet 2 and Precision Piezo Orion v2

Hi, I have a custom BLV cube CoreXY machine, and have been using a Duet 2 for quite some time, and I really love it. I have been using an ir probe, and recently I decided to switch to a piezo probe since the ir probe wasn't quite as accurate as I liked. So, I designed and printed up a mounting system for it (basically just integrated the mount they designed in to my toolhead). It went together well, and testing it by tapping my finger on the probe, it triggers. The problem is this. When I try to home the bed using G30, the head comes down and presses on the bed, but the bed keeps moving up about 5mm past the head, flexing the mount, basically causing a soft crash. I have tried many combinations of probing speed (5-50mm/s) and sensitivity of the probe itself, to no avail. What am I doing wrong?
Here is my config.g:

Probe dive speed may be too low. The piezo needs a short sharp shock to trigger.
Try M558 F600 and G31 P100
Might also want to reduce the Z axis motor current a bit in case of a crash.
How much flex is there in the mount for the piezo? If it's too squishy it might not trigger the piezo either.

You got me thinking about it, and I discovered that you can use it in analog mode. Doing this, I got it to work, but yes, the frame is somewhat flexible, as it is printed out of PETG. Eventually, I am planning to print it out of heat-treated carbon fiber PLA.
