Default Lamson-Waterworks drag question?

Hi there! I'm lookin at the Lamson Speedster to compliment a 9wt rod I picked up...question is should I go with the 4 instead if the 3.5. From what I can tell Lamson stepped up the drag to the "intermediate" size in the 4 just like the Velocity and Litespeed. I'm using the 9wt. to pursue musky/pike and occasional trips to steelhead/salmon and salt waters. Anyone have experience with the jump from the smaller conical drag to the intermediate? Differences? Stopping power? Also would like to hear people who use their Lamsons in the salt? Durability? From what I've read here is that they can take on moisture but popping off the spool and rinsing in freshwater and air drying after a day on the flats is standard practice with these reels. Thanks and look forward to any replies.
