No need to retract your offering about modified lines at all. I've cut lines shorter than 30 feet for one reason or another but you and I can adjust to the timing change and other resultant negative results - it's tougher for a beginner to do that.

My short lines are almost always sinking heads or integrated heads that I've up-lined by as much as two or three weights in order to get the same load as I would with a longer line. I really like 28-feet for my T-14 Rio Outbound Custom Cut lines, for example.

Nothing is etched in granite, nor should it be.
