What does heavy beam rod mean?

I was looking at a engine on a web-site (blueprint engines) and they stated that a particular 383 had "chevy heavy beam rods" What does that mean? Thanks.

"Heavy beam rods" sounds like double-speak to sell. Ask them to clarify exactly what they mean and you may never get an answer.

It could be a reference to "X" rods. GM used these is heavy duty truck engines
for years. More material was forged into the rod for strength making them
ideal for high performance use.
