I hear what you're saying, but don't give up especially with a solution this easy. There is a lot of draft system info out there that is just plain flawed. There are lots of different draft systems - kegerators, keezers, converted fridge kegerators, etc. They're all different. Kegerators like I use are susceptible to more foaming in the first pint because the line from the tower to the tap isn't chilled (unless you use a fan to cool the tower), so you can't compare to the fridge I used to have where the lines stayed cold inside the fridge.
Bottom line - a Lot of brew shops and retailers try to pound a round peg into a square hole with respect to draft sytems. Here's the truth - you need as long a serving line as you need to get a good pour. Anybody that gives you a set 5 ft line or similar is just plain full of s@#t. Start with 10', cut it down in 6" increments until you get the pour you want. Then THAT'S the length of serving line you need.
