 We therefore agree with Appellants that it is not a reasonable interpretation to equate “tubular” with “trough-like” and therefore it is unreasonable to equate the “tubular” structure of claim 20 with the trough shown by Weissman (FF 4). See, e.g., In re Buszard, 504 F.3d 1364, 1367 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (“[I]t is not a reasonable claim interpretation to equate “flexible” with “rigid”).
