Trivial, to be sure.
Easy there buddy boy, no need to get jacked up about it. Like I said before there are some of us that simply don't like the new names. Just like how some anglers don't like certain reel seats that don't look "traditional" it may hold no functional difference but is a matter of aesthetics. Many fly-anglers prefer gear made one way or the other, the point is its a matter of preference. The only one here that sounds like they're complaining is you. This is a discussion board, people talk about gear, what they like and don't like. Get used to it.
