shortenning 9 ft rods

i have a few fast action 9ft backup rods in 6,8,an10 weight that i am thinking about shortenning to 7'9" or 8" for use in my boat where i fish in boston harbor and for mangrove type fishing for snook or peacock bass. my thinking is that the shorter length will give me more leverage on the fish. my concern is the affect on casting performance. any advise or information is much appreciated.
