I like the extra shock absorption a long rod offers as well as line control. I just dislike fishing with short rods now tbh. Most all of my fishing is done with rods over 7' with 9' being my all around favorite length, even on streams you could jump across. I would be using this setup on larger water than brook trout trickles though. I fish some larger rivers with some mean trout in them lol.
I like a long sensitive rod and I like one pc rod....
If you are in US, You will be so lucky to choose from Gloomis, St. Croix, and Kistler and they are 100% US made rod
