Shorter rod with wind in your face?

I have a 9’ rod and a 10’6 rod with similar lure ratings and I feel like I get better casting distance with the 9’ when there’s a strong wind in my face. I’m not sure if it’s just in my head or if the shorter rod is actually getting better distance. What have you found?

Makes a difference with stamina and also maintains more power as the rod unloads quicker with shorter length. A stout blank is necessary, but requires more force an better technique to maximize the effect.  All comes down to striking the right balance.
