I agree with the previous response that a connection on length & incontinence appears unlikely.
I thought I'd add a comment, however, about your question of "aim."
In the first week or two, in particular, after the catheter was removed (during the period of peak incontinence), the spray was everywhere. I was constantly wiping up the floor after myself. I think there were two things going on here. First, the passage way had just been reamed for a week with a tube...I thought that was a contributor. Second, during those first couple weeks there was a lot leaking out on it's own, so when I did go to the toilet it was less than a full bladder, and sometimes not much at all. But I did think it was an important part of the re-training to force myself to try to hold it and then relieve myself. Those first couple of weeks during re-training, I found myself going to the toilet frequently and not much coming out (but some left in the absorbancy pad), but as I said, the aim/spray was messy. Slowly improved with time. Almost everything during this post-catheter phase seems to improve slowly...emphasis on the word "slowly". Have patience.
By the way, go ahead and buy yourself a package of the men's Depends Guards now. It's awkward going through the checkout line, but in my case my wife refused. I remember one trip to the store, the 15-year old bagging (at a grocery store) held the package up and ask (loudly, it seemed), "Do you want me to bag these?"
