Does a shorter rod cause more fatigue?

How well the rod loads the lure is what will make the biggest difference in fatigue, IMO. If It loads it well and launches it with mechanical advantage, the rod will do most of the work = i.e. less fatigue. If it is too soft or too stiff you will do a much greater % of the heavy lifting.

for me, the longer the better (assuming the 2 blanks compared are similar in every other way)

The longer rod will cast the bait further with less effort if it is the same blank. The disadvantage of the longer rod is that it is slightly heavier than the shorter rod which will be noticeable at the end of the long day of fishing pounders. So to answer your original question the shorter rod can be more fatiguing to cast at longer distances but can be less fatiguing on the retrieve do to lower overall weight. If the longer rod fits your needs I would steer you toward that direction.

TI has a lot of Pro staffers, Guides and customers who use the TI Musky XXH rods from 9 up to 10'6" all day long and love them. You can launch pounders with these long rods!!
