Default Ice Rod Length

I was just wondering! I like longer rods for fishing without a tent(I like shorter ones with the tent) but I think longer rods get better hooksets and give more leverage than a shorter rod(although I did have a 12" XXUltra-Light ice rod and I just loved it! ) I like rods usually from 30" to as long as around 4 feet!
Let's see what type of rod everyone likes!
Thanks!
