Distance depends on where you fish. By me, jetty country NJ, you really don't need to cast far. Drive an hour south and the bar is way out, hard to reach with a 10'er. In the fall when the fish are stacked and mostly in the 10# range a smaller rod is a lot of fun. In the spring when there are 40's around that same 8'er is not going to cut it.

Also, if you hook up with a pig you might have trouble landing it with a little 8'er
