Izzat a longer butt or a longer gutt that you prefer Peter; or are they related ?

I find 2 inches from the end of the reel seat to be just fine. The rod below the foregrip is way stiffer than it needs to be, largely because the diameter of the blank keeps on increasing, even though the bending strain in the blank must go to zero that the end of the butt cap. So I don't see whay the butt needs to be any longer than to get the reel out of the gutt; and for the legal disclaimer; that is aside from a deliberate intention to give the rod a two fisted arrangement; such as the TFO Heavy Duty Blue Water rod is.
