Obviously all rods aren't going to get tested, but maybe the ones being reviewed do. That would be a good start.
Yes. Time consuming labor that most companies evidently aren't willing, wanting, and obviously not needing to do. Take any two popular rod companies. Company A makes these testing results readily available, company B does not. Are you going to stop buying rods from company B? Every manufacturer would have to hop on the same train. Neat idea, but likely more of a dream. . . . For some. I find the materials and manufacturing process of rod blanks way more interesting. Hell, you can't even get most rod companies to tell you who's blanks they're using unless they roll their own.
