First the blank 7' 8-14lb 1/4-5/8oz Butt .480 Tip 5.5 power=med RX7 blank

I'm after two objectives extending the blank about 6'' plus a better transaction up to a #17mm seat I would prefer and #18 but thats not an option of what I'm looking at. What I have in mine is Graphite I like the looks of these over Batson one

Now comes my concerns are working with a smaller bait rod like this. As I understand it adding to the butt will soften the tip action?? If I was to add 6 or 8'' to the butt with this small tip will I loose much power and action? I don't want to end up with a mushy ended rod if you know what I mean and I don't want to cut and back up on my tip. I do have trouble putting my thoughts into words a lot of the time for others to understand :banghead
