Rear mech hangar extender

Hi could I get some thoughts on running a rear mech hanger extender, I'm going to build up my traditional road bike with an 11/38 , I have a medium cage so I might need to extend ..?

The extender doesn't change the chain wrap capacity of the RD

I'm sure the answer is coming. Then 15 replys on how they are wrong.

It should work fine if you have 50t chainring, & probably OK for 52t.

At worst a little slack in small/small position. Not a big gamble to try it for $20.

I use one for 11/34 & short cage RD.
