When choosing a shorter rod, keep in mind that the casting distance will be limited. This means that as you fish, you will be expending more energy to cast for distance, thereby becoming fatigued. A shorter rod also limits the amount of flex, meaning this type of rod does not work with you for casting.
The advantage of a shorter rod is that if you are planning a fishing trip where you will be hiking back into the countryside and fishing for days, they are lighter weight and more compact, making them easier to manage.
