Default White River 270 fly rod with broken tip

I have a White River 270, 9', 5wt fly rod that I broke 6" off of the tip. I retipped it at 8'6" and it cast a little stiff with the 5wt WF line. I over lined it with a 6wt line and it casts great. Is this a result of it losing 6" or would it have cast the 6wt better than the 5wt before it lost the 6"? It cast the 5wt great before it was broken. Thanks, flyrodder
