I agree, and also think that longer rods work a bit better.
I don't mean that you have to buy a 10' stick, but picking your 9' rod instead of 8' for a day that includes lots of roll casting can really help. I know some sing the praises of short rods on tight streams, but if I know I'll have to roll cast alot, I'd sooner have my 8.5' 3wt than a 7' rod.
