Default Rod Reel combo help

WOnder if anybody has any experience on the follwoing matter..... I am looking for some feedback on a Rod - Reel combo.... I just sold my Sage SLT 9' 5wt. I am planning on getting a Sage Z-Axis 10' 4wt. 4pc.
My question is I have Hardy LRH Lightweight. Do you think if I put on a 4wt double taper line on this reel with the 10' 4wt rod is a mistake? I realize the Lightweight is designed to use 5-6wt lines. Any other suggestions welcome.
Anyone have any good advice or thoughts?
Thanks a lot, JimBo"

It should not be an issue. Double taper 4 weight lines take up as much space as a weight forward 5 weight line. Plus the mass or the reel will balance on the longer rod.
