    Iíve thought about it but donít really have the space to do it. It would be nice though. D10ís bending curve setup was much nicer than what I did in a video. While I tried to hold the rod in same location it wasnít exact.

    Since these rods are 2pc, maybe it could be done with just the tip section. That's where most of the bend is, anyway.

    Just thinking out loud ...

    You would only have to photograph the tip section, but without the butt section you would lose a lot of the information you would want to have. The photo below shows fixed line rods rather than spinning rods but the basic concept is the same. All four rods were held at exactly the same spot, at exactly the same angle. Differences in the stiffness of the blanks in the lower part of the rods had a huge difference in the overall bend profile. (Unfortunately, I no longer have even that much blank wall so I cannot now take comparison photos like that one.

    Thatís exactly what I was trying to illustrate. I love the backdrop. I will have to attempt again with a backdrop like that.
