The CCS is a static test system.

It is fine for comparing two similar rods for deflection and angle at 1/3 the rod length. Harry Wilson of Scott Rods did this graphically in the 1970's with a choice of three rod actions for a given length and line weight. In the rods of 8wt and over, we had four relative stiffness or bending curves to select with the Scott Rods. He graphed much more than the initial 1/3 length curve. This of course was done with fixed weights.

The CCS tells little about how a rod will cast and feel to the FF. It is an interesting varation on some earlier concepts.
