Never had a problem with 8' rods on a kayak and I can get the rod around the bow should I need to, I can cast better with a longer rod and I feel that a longer rod has a better action.
If everyone used outriggers or bamas then a 5' rod would be useful, but they are rare here in the UK.

Each to their own, I prefer a short rod. I used short rods chasing cod, smoothies etc in the UK . I use short rods here. I use a 6ft rod for casting lures into bust ups
