That really depends on where you're fishing from and what type of fishing you're referring to. You have to be a little bit more specific.

Considerations:

- if you have transport to travel to your fishing spot. a 7" is a pain to carry in a bus or MRT.
- 1 Piece more sensitivity than 2 piece
- long rod gives problem when casting in tight environment like trees around you.
- long rods can cast further. Personally, i find longer rods may need more effort to set hook. still depends on the strength of the rod thou..
- usually jetty fishing cast far. Then again depends what fishing style. If Ajing, don't really need cast far.
