It doesn't matter much to me either way. I'm far from being a purist whatever. Proper terminology goes a long ways when trying to be specific but we are talking fly rods. Simple as that. If it keeps the peace though,I will oblige them and not call their beloved rod a boo rod.
Aw, it's all just in fun. A little ribbing is part of the "fraternity", isn't it? I put "fraternity" in quotes, partly because when Martha Young (Paul Young's wife) handed me her Driggs model rod years ago, it was love. Lots of great women fishing bamboo.
