a good line weight for both rods would be a WF 5#, I have that on my 4# because it loads better than a 4# line and I can still make small accurate casts. A good rule of them when determining line weight, is that it is usually fine to go up a size in a WF line, you may have to slow down your casting stroke a tad, but going down a size won't give you enough weight to load your rod properly, meaning you won't be able to throw your line quite as fine. Also don't go for a DT 5# for your 4# because that could be too much line and again your distance could suffer.
hope that this helps and good luck
