Default 5wt shootout defl chart: where is the One?

I went to go look at the deflection charts in the Yellowstone shootout to see how it compared to the Radian, H2, NRX LP, and the Hardy Zenith. Am I missing something or is it not there at all?

The ONE is so stiff it wouldn't fit on the page.

gads, I've seen "deflection charts" for 50 years. It's like looking at a sports car because it looks neat.
You have to see how the rod flexes when stress is first applied at all angles to really tell anything by it.

Makes me think of the old ugly stick commercials where hunk hogan is touching the tip to the butt. If that was good, hoola hoops would make good fishing rods.
