For a bamboo rod I vote for a short length.
If you are in a situation where you need something over 8 feet, might as well let graphite do what graphite does best - make a long lightweight rod. I almost always use a short (7' or shorter) cane rod, because where most people say they need a long rod, I still do very well with a short one. Mending line, float tubing, roll casting. I haven't fished for salmon or steelhead yet, so my tune may change if I ever do.
The taper I would make for this rod would be the Cattanach "Sir D" taper. It has an almost universal appeal to fly fishers, especially one just going to bamboo from graphite.

I'll get the next poll in place in the next day or two. Stay tuned!
