I'm assuming you mean "Why use the X designation at all?" So are you saying that just because a mfgr puts data on a spool of tippet he shouldn't have to stand behind that data? If so, you're just the kind of customer every shady business man dreams about.

Oh sure, I'm going to go through and start relabeling all my tippet material so a mfgr can continue with this shoddy practice of wrong labeling .
