Default DIY Radius rods

Hey all! So I am building my radius rods and when buying the steel tubing I asked for the advice of the guys working at the steel place and one said he built his out of .75" inside diameter .120 thick DOM tubing. I am using 1" inside diameter tubing based on the ends I have and he sold me the same .120 wall thick tubin Like he used. attached is the design I am building, not a perfect drawing but the shaded areas will be 10 awg steel for design and support.

should I have thicker tubing? Thanks!

It looks good the way it is. The 10 awg webbing makes it extra strong. Good luck.
