I 100% agree with you if you're talking standard 9' single-handed rods. Believe me, it's a lot different with 10 1/2"-12-1/2' double-handed rods. Others disagree with me, so I guess it's just a matter of casting style, but it's so much more graceful and fluid to use a longer head on a two-hander. Now, adding all that tip to get down will probably change things a bit. Where I fish on Cape Cod one doesn't normally need to get down that deep. There are other places around there where you do, but I usually avoid them as there's so many other options.
