DynaRod User's Guide Preface How to use DynaRod Trouble Shooting Table of Contents


This table is used to calculate the moment value which is caused by Top Guide.

Top guide size is decided automatically by DynaRod by searching the inner diameter of top guide's pipe in this table.   The diameter search is made by the dimension instead of diagonal since we prefer to have a lighter top guide in weight and actually we file the tip top in round shape prior to glue a top guide.
