Default Really need advice on reel size...

Hi all... need some advice on reel size. I currently picked up an ECHO Edge 9' 9-wt and am looking to pair it with a Lamson Speedster, question is what size? On paper it looks like the 3.5 looks right but really want the upgraded or "larger" drag in the 4. Is over sizing a 9-wt rod with a 10-wt reel a terrible idea? Primarily quarry are Tiger Musky...but want a reel that I can take the hard runs of big salmon and/or bonefish and permit or other big salty game fish. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.
