I like measurement indicators too. My split cane have thread wraps at 16,18,20" measurements. Fish under 16" don't need to be known.I'd rather include measuring points for sizing purposes. Name or no name means little to the fish but they all want to know how big they are. I used to scribe my name on all my tools and it helped with job site loss/theft, a rod is just a tool so having it marked doesn't bother me and none of mine would be collector quality after I'm done with them. They will look used.
On the other hand, if it was meant to be a wall hanger that might be passed down or sold to a collector I can see that a name detracts from value, once in a while an otherwise nice rod sells cheap on the auction because of an owner's name being on it. That wouldn't matter to me either, if I was buying it to use.
