My usual reaction to a dry take is to let the fish take it down and then set. Last year though, I had many difficulties with that technique until I finally wacked one with a quick strike right simultaniously with the take. Got that one. But regardless of your timing, that extra foot and the slight extra softness in my opinion is not as efficient as a slightly stiffer 9 footer when setting hooks with drys.....regardless of when you strike.
