Default Winch line length- is shorter better???

I am ordering a synthetic winch line to repace my old steel cable. I have a Warn M12 with 125' of cable currently. Should I get 125' again or go with 90-100'? The shorter line would mean that I would always have less line on the spool and therefor a stronger pull and I could use an extension if I needed a longer pull.
Any thoughts on the type of synthetic line I should go with? I like the 3/8" Viking combo line with safety thimble.

See you at CM06
