rods 5 inches
Explanation:
Im really not an expert in the field.
As far as I can understand "sinistre" is used to indicate whether the arm will have the hand on the right or on the left, but I guess this is not necessary to be specified in English. As for 5”, it indicates the diameter in inches.
I've found this reference, I hope it can help: http://www.dimec.unige.it/pmar/pages/download/papers/AIAS04z...
