IMO, it depends on what type of boat you fish from, smaller Private boat vs a bigger, head boat (and more people, less moveability).

The 6' can help you keep the fish from rubbing the line on the hull of the boat.

But I don't know if 6" can make that big of difference since you're 6'3"!

Either one will work for you, but the 5'6" is a stronger rod vs the 6'.

If you want to pull on one before you buy, come to the next BassProShop get together and I'll bring all 3 rods!

Stopped by FTU 45 south, this week end to pick up about $500 in terminal tackle to take back to Kuwait for some locals that fish for Grouper and Snapps.
FYI.
I noticed only 4 OTI rods left in the racks. The Popper selection also looked to be moving well.

i believe he is from the northeast and probably fishing party boats. the longer will give you more room to manuver around the boat when the tuna circles but the shorter gives you more pulling power I opeted for all my jig rods to be shorter, it also helps your technique if you are using a butterfly type jig

I just posted above to mention that the OTI products appear to be moving well @ FTU.

It might be too early to say. But I was wondering if OTI and GrandDads plan to be at the Houston fishing show again this year?
