Finding a rod blank I need

I have a customer who wants an 8' 2 piece med. pwr. fast action 15 to 25 lb. test mono, 1/2 to 3 oz. lure weight rod. He will be using a Penn 965 International reel. I've looked high & low with no luck. Bushido makes an 8' 6" stick that has the parameters needed but he believes taking 6" off the butt will ruin the balance of the 2 piece. Any ideas here?
