That would help him feel the rod load depending on how he casts now. Without enough line speed, a relatively tight loop and a crisp stop he might never feel the rod load.
Now if he has his cast down good (and that I can't say) maybe he just needs to let the rod do it's job just as his smaller rod does. I've seen where people pick up a rod with a line weight way heavier than they're used to and then create all sorts of errors by thinking they really have to horse it to make it work.
