Regarding butt to reel, also find 30cm odd. But to each his own.

Too short for effective push pull if using the right hand to control the reel with the left on the butt (assuming you are right handed)
Try putting the butt between your legs (just pretend you are an American Surf Fisherman - its their standard practice) to get the reel at a comfortable level when retrieving.
That or use the left hand to control the reel with right hand further up.
Or cast over your left shoulder with right hand controlling the reel/line release.
Last option sounds counter intuitive ie left handed but you will be surprised at how well you will cast....
