Default Cortland sylk; go one line weight over

After several outings, I find the 4 wt. DT sylk underperforms on an Orvis 4 wt. Superfine. I fished it on a 9' 3 wt. custom medium flex rod with a world of difference. My suggestion is go one line overweight when purchasing the sylk.
It is thin, lands softly and performs flawlessly on my 3 wt., after being ready to toss it from the experience on the 4 wt. rod.
