Comparison FunctionFrom version 2.92, the rod which is under calculation can compare against another rods which were already calculated one by one.
Deflection and Action GenomeDynaRod uses the following measurement to represent the rod deflection. Rod Angle As shown in the graph below, rod angle is the angle which is made between vertical line and the line which connect butt end and tip top. The less this angle is, the stiffer (or faster) the rod becomes.
Rod Stiffness The existing definition of rod action type, such as "Fast action is the rod whose 30 % of tip section deflects", may not be applied for any parabolic action rod. It would be necessary to implement the standardized measurement for any kind of action rod. DynaRod proposes to implement a new measure of rod stiffness based on the Rod Angle as follows; "The Rod Stiffness is defined by Rod Angle which is calculated or measured under an standardized load." The standardized load are;
This is to describe a rod stiffness, not rod action. For rod action, Action Genome is measure for the proposed type of action. Tip Top Tangent AngleThe Angle made between a vertical line and tangent of the 1st 1" of the tip top when an entire rod bend is measured in 1". According to the physical rule, this angle represent the total of each bend angle for each 1" section of the rod. The 1" section's bend angle is measured against the angle of 1" prior section. So Top Tangent Angle can be said as the total of rod bends or magnitude of bend angle. Action GenomeThe Angle made between a vertical line and tangent of the 1st 1" of the tip top when an entire rod bend is measured in 1". According to the physical rule, this angle represent the total of each bend angle for each 1" section of the rod. The 1" section's bend angle is measured against the angle of 1" prior section. So Top Tangent Angle can be said as the total of rod bends or magnitude of bend angle. This action genome can be understood that it shows the exact bend angle from previous 1" section. The higher part of the graph bends more. The benefit of those graphs as the design tool, are
Deflection Designer tool is good to clarify the fly fishers requirements for a rod. Assumptions of calculationEach graph carries the assumed information when it is calculated at the upper left corner as shown below. This is to compare with the current information in the Archive if some data is changed or not. The following data items are printed; Rod Type, Rod ID, Rod Length, no of pieces, assumed Casting Style, Line Type, Line Wt, Line to Fish, Tip acceleration in G, weight of Fly, weight of Fish, Rod Angle, Top Angle, used Bamboo, used Lvalue. Note: Top Angle is for tip top tangent angle.
