Stepping may work. 70-130 big jump, hard to say.
Really good read, answers a lot.

Have you even hit it yet? There is no standard for flex so there is a lot more to judging a shaft than reading the flex off of a label. So whether or not it will feel too soft will depend a lot on which particular x-flex shafts you've been playing, your swing characteristics, your particular sensitivities, and your preferences for feel. The rogues do tend to be on the stiffer side of most 'stiff' shafts and I believe the TS also has a lower torque which also helps it feel a bit stiffer.
So I'd suggest you just try it out straight in before making any decisions (leave some extra room in length at the butt end and test it choked up). If it feels fine, then your great and can go back and butt cut to the desired length). If it feels a little soft, tipping (1"-1.5") can stiffen it up a little bit and possibly get it to work for you BUT that's not going to change it a full flex. So if it's really loose untipped, you'd be better off it selling to buy an x-stiff. That's an expensive shaft and if you tip it and it doesn't work, you'll potentially reduce the resale value significantly.
And BTW if the lighter shaft weight turns out to be an issue, you can try
1) adjusting the swing weight a little heavier. For some people, they can use SW to help compensate for a shaft weight that's too light (to some degree at least).
2) Try adding a butt weight (tour loc pro, etc..) to increase static weight. May also need to play with head weight as well to adjust the balance - but do it at the range with some lead tape, not with a swing weight scale.
