I don’t seem to hear much talk or see at matches much in the way of the Tanfo long slides like the  Match Extreme  Custom .40. 
Any reason for that I’m missing? Is it just cost?
Unless you are referring to the Stock 2, virtually all of the Tanfos used in competition are 4.75" Longslides.

What kind of matches?  

 

For USPSA/IPSC, few people want an iron-sighted 6" gun.  The accuracy demands aren't that stringent, so a 4.5"-5" sight radius is enough.  The power factor requirements aren't hard to hit with .40, so there's no need for extra barrel.  You're just adding a lot of weight out front.  The huge majority of people don't want that because of slower handling, and find that the extra recoil reduction isn't worth the tradeoff past about 5".
