Chopping rod butt

Hey just wondering if anyone has attempted themselves the shortening of a surf rod butt?  Just wondering how hard, what tools, how much cut off etc. It would be on my 13ft sensor surf as butt is very long, i thought i read somewhere they made them long and you could shorten them but not sure if it was the sensor.

you can reduce the length of the butt

The bottom stopper should come off if forced, it is only capped on. Trim the cork with a hack saw and replace cap. Saw the guy in the tackle shop do it for a customer one day.

I was going to do this with my 10' sensor surf as it felt long in the shop, but decided to keep it long as i like it now and its grown on me :)
