Offshore 2hander Specifications?

It seems pretty clear that since the 8wt 12'4" european two-hander is able to handle very high line wgts on the beach, the best thing to do with the 9wt 14 footer is to try to figure out how to trim it down for use on boats for v-e-r-y large fish.

We liberated 4" from the 8wt and it easily throws 12 wt lines now. (yes it blew our minds)

I would like to ask you offshore guys what you'd like out of the rod - the extra handle for fighting ability (place it on the hip, belt or under the shoulder?), the no-nonsense casting without hauling or excessive false casting? The ability to throw super heavy line weights?

What insights do you have for us to shoot for in this next rod?

Anxious to hear...
