Rod Bend

“Because adding bend makes hand paths become less extreme for a straighter tip path, bend also gives us a bio-mechanical advantage. We are able to input more force, more smoothly and control the force vectors more easily the fewer changes we have to make to the direction of our hand path.”

Mark Surtees

When reading about “rod load” think of straight trajectory of the rod tip, instead of bow and arrow.
