So the over lining is to get more line mass to propel a heavier or bushier fly but not for long distances.

My concern was that you were using the 11 wt to catch fish that required an 11 wt rod like a tarpon. It seems to me that the 6 wt could handle the fish you are after. As long as you are aware of the point at which the rod begins to break down during the cast, I think you are going to be OK.
