Sage RPLX & Overlining?

I've got a first generation Sage RPLX 9wt travel rod, which has a pretty stiff tip and fast action. I enjoy using the rod to sling a long line while distance casting but to get it to load when you're making a short cast to a fish coming in close is pretty tough.

Has anyone out that has this rod or another RPLX model experimented with overlining? Did this effectively solve the short distance loading/casting concern? And if so, how detrimental was it to the rod's ablility to carry a lot of line in the air for making longer casts?

Thanks for any insights you might offer? John
