Short rods for salt water...?

I saw that GLoomis recently discontinued their short lived short stick. This was a rod that measured out under 8' in length. I now Sage and TFO offer undersized rods from what we consider normal(9'). Outside of being legal for bass tourney's I'm curious what the board thinks of these rods in general. I can think of a few instances where they may have an advantage but mostly see more negatives when using these shorter rods. Am I missing something here? Some of my guide customers use them but I have critiques for these rods more than advantages for their use. C'mon guys, tell me what I'm missing here on ALL GRAPHITE versions...
