Rate of Decrease change

I was working on the Anti-Blather Nalgar tonight at Mind's Eye and realized the current rate of decrease down the sleeve (2 sts. EOR from 72 to 44) was going way too fast. I need 11 inches of length for the balance of the sleeve, including ribbing, and here I was just about done with the decreases at less than 4 inches. Which would leave, looking from the wrist, a long straight tube that would suddenly ballon out just below my elbow up to the shoulder. Not the look I'm going for.

Now trying a rate of decrease of 2 sts E3rdR, i.e., decrease round, knit 2 rounds plain. We'll see how far that gets me towards the wrist.
