Default Propper hook setting and rod guides

Having read the FAQ on hook sets, I have a question: Is there danger that when pulling the fly line down while raising the rod to set the hook, that the line guides could be damaged. (I have been just keeping a tight line and raising the the rod tip appropriately.) Pulling down on the line makes sense, I just worry about my rod guides, figured I'd get some opinions on here.
