Default trimming bines

So I have 4 bines on my plant. 1 is 10 feet, 1 is 2 feet, and the others are a foot. Should I trim the two smaller ones or just let them all 4 go? Sometimes I hear either 2 or 4 bones are acceptable. I have them growing verticle at the corner of my house on a single twine.

Are these 1st year plants or older? If first year, let them grow otherwise trim the 2 small ones as long as they are coming out of the dirt and not off the main bine.

Let them all grow, I let 6 bines total from each plant grow and get alot of hops from them. I run 3 up each line. have been doing this for the past 4 years...
