Rod recommendations

I'm looking for advice on what size (length) of rod would be the best. Having just sold my entry level two-piece 8 wt. single handed rod (9' 6"), I am looking to replace it (either buy or make) with a four-piece. The new rod would be used to fish for steelhead on smaller rivers and to supplement my existing two handed 7141. I prefer a firm/fast action and do mostly roll/spey casting with a single handed rod. I am interested in hearing about any experiences (pro and con) with different rod lengths from 9 to 10 feet.

Thanks for all your input,


DaL
