Balancing act

You are trying to balance a long, thin rod at the tip of your finger in such a way that the rod is supported at the bottom but remains close to vertical.

You have two rods with about the same weight: one is 0.5 m\SI{0.5}{\meter} long and the other is 2.0 m\SI{2.0}{\meter} long. Which one is easier to balance?
