Shorter rods also tend to be more sensitive and thus better able to detect bites. That said, there are some situations where a longer rod may be preferable in order to better control the lure in deeper water or windy conditions.
Others believe that longer rods offer more leverage and casting power, making them better suited for larger fish. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and what feels most comfortable in your hands.
Additionally, a shorter rod is easier to control in close quarters, which can be important when fishing in tight spots or around heavy cover.
However, other anglers find that longer rods provide more power and better fish-fighting ability when casting and fighting fish in open water.
Ultimately, it is up to the individual angler to experiment with different lengths of rods to see what works best for them in their particular fishing situation.
Others believe that longer rods provide more leverage and allow for greater casting distances. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. Some anglers prefer shorter rods while others prefer longer rods.
