Default line length for picnic tap set up?

I'm running 10 ft of 3/16 beverage line in my kegerator (to faucets) and get a good pour, with most of my beers being American ales at 10-12 psi.

I need to take a couple of kegs to a party in a few week, so need to order some picnic tap set ups. Can anyone recommend a line length? Still 10 ft?

Not particularly interested in fiddling with dip tube inserts just yet. Kegs will be iced, of course, so possibly even colder than I keep them in the kegerator, although the lines will not be (if it makes a difference).

Thx for any advice.

i would stick with 10ft. I had picnic taps with 5ft and had to make the switch, way too much foam. or if it's just fro a party, get one of the faucets that connects directly and a co2 charger, it's cleaner and easier, although more costly.
