This is a no brainer.

Two-hand rods have fewer guides than the length of the rod for the simple reason that the rear grip, reel seat, and front spey grip take up a good bit more of the butt section of the blank than the reel seat and grip on a single-hander, including one with a 1.5" built-on fighting butt.

How many guides do you think your 8' rod would have if it had a 4" rear spey grip, 4" reel seat, and 12" front spey grip? Or you 9' rod if it had a 4.5' rear spey grip, 4.5" reel seat, and 13" front spey grip? Or your 10' rod if it had a 5" rear spey grip, 4.5" reel seat, and 14" front spey grip?
