Default Leader length

When I am making short casts 1.5 rod lenghts of fly line and shorter many times my leader doesn't turn over properly. This seems to happen more often when I am using a short rod. When using a 6-7 ft rod what is your favorite leader length? If it is less than the shortest commercial leader (7.5 ft) how do you make it shorter, shorten the butt or tippet. If you make your own will you share the taper?

Thanks
Tom

P.S. Sure hope the hackers don't force the board off line again
