I have a St Croix Imperial 8'6'' 4wt and use both the 4wt and 5wt peachy line. Both roll cast well. I have also have Rio DT 4wt line and it acts in a similar manner as the 5wt Peachy line. The 5wt Peach DT line casts dries much better than the 4wt at longer distances which is expected but the 4wt line has its advantages on still water and finicky fish which are spooked more easily. I like using the DT lines much better than the WF lines.

The problem with fly fishing, the longer you do it the more variables your mind processes.

It really depends on what your doing with the rod. If its a very flexible rod and supposed to be more of a dry fly rod I would keep it at 3wgt. line proportions. If it has some ass behind it and your going to be nymphing/streamer fishing primarily then you can over line it and it will be much easier for you to cast/roll.

But at 7'9 I have no idea why someone would want to buy a 7'9 rod and want to make it a nymphing rod, unless your are nymphing native sized streams all the time.
