And I like a few on here have been at it for well over fourty years and your mate sounds like a narrow minded one dimensional type. After thirty years you must know the ability to adapt to the situation will help catch fish, if that means using a six foot rod to gain access or a thirteen foot cast tool to reach them.

Ask yourself why a lot of waggler and trotting rods are/were 14ft?

Has nothing to do with the journey from car to swim.

Rod lengths serve a purpose dependant on the job they are tasked for. Jerk bait rods, spinning rods, beach casters, trotting rods, stalking rods, floater rods and boat rods are certain lengths for a reason. Carp angling most of the time is about chucking a lead at set distances and then it sits there for hours on end motionless, with the rods sat on a rest or the floor, so for that style of fishing length is negligible.

Ask yourself why rods are twelve feet
Iíd guess because when you half it it makes carrying the things easier
So there you have it lol
Rod choice is like sex , everyone thinks their good at it ,a bit like the more enjoyable past time fishing 👍🏻

Too many disadvantages to using a 9ft that would make me switch from a 12ft rod. They would be unusable on a couple of my waters.

I would agree though that they are far more accurate, however that extra *counts fingers* 3ft could mean the difference between lowering a rig on a spot and coaxing a fish around marginal pads/reeds/branches, or not.

You simply can't floater fish at distance with a short rod.

I guess if you are on commercials with zero bankside vegetation and marginal weed it would not make a difference.

I use scopes in 10ft and wouldnít go back to 12 ft rods
Iíve lost 2 wraps on my casting distance
Itís so much more fun
Iím a **** caster anyway so it dosnt matter
I had Chris brown make me a two piece handled net
While your all casting to the same spots from both sides of the
Lake Iím happy 😂
Ok there are lakes where you need to cast 150 yards but I cant see past
a 100 so wonít fish there 👍🏻
Buy and use what you want and enjoy it

And top carp Anglers always talk balls hit anyway😂
There only time bandits 😂
