I would personally be more concerned with caliper, length and vitality of 
scionwood, than quantity of pieces. (maybe that is what you meant?) 
Preferring fewer 2' shoots to a lot of 8" ones - which don't yield as nice 
scionwood because of the end trimming and close buds. The one time I wanted 
this I watered and fertilized early in the season and picked off sprouts I 
didn't want.... But I'm definitly a novice fruit grower.
