Length of shifter cable for Futura Mark 3

Can someone recommend a good length for the shifter cable? Not sure how much of a loop I need.

I just got a MK III and it seems quite long. It sits on the side of my tube with a big curl in it before it runs down to the console. Without measuring its at least 6 feet and could be 8 feet. I can almost move the bench with the console to the end of the aluminum flooring however not quite to the end as the cable is definitely stretched.
