Default Re: 9' 8-weight versus 11' 8-weight (switch)?

I not see how leverage is important any how.I fish for big tarpon 2 months a year and can tell you the only way to land big fish quickly is ...basically.....pointing the rod at the fish and pumping back only about 15 deg....fight with the butt of the rod with as little tip bend as possible.
Now...this doesn't old true for fish the fight at a deeper water level...then...short rod.
