With a premium braid of less than 20 pound test and FC leader of about 15 pound test those guides will pass an Alberto just fine.  I do it with 4's.

Your layout looks fine. I usually build 10, 7kb, 5kb, then 5kt for the rest. The 7kb is for esthetics, not performance. 

 

For what it's worth, I go as big as 50lb 832 to a 25lb sunline sniper leader through #5 guides.

Many exaggerate the amount of room your line and well tied small knot really need, a size 8 running guide was the norm when I built my first rod and we weren't using nothing but straight mono. An illustration of what 50 lb. mono looks like in a 3 mm guide. Really want to know what works, try it, the guides are a buck a piece and you don't have to build it to try it, just tape the guides on and test cast, I have taped entire rods together to test cast, it works.
