5 weight guide train

Looking at building a 9' 5 weight as my next project. Searched as much as I could, but didn't come up with anything definitive. Wondering if this guide train would work, or if there are suggestions for a better guide train.

Pac Bay Minima Model T Titanium Hard Chrome TT3XG-12, TT3XG-08, followed by 10 Pac Bay Minima Model F Titanium TF3XG-04-W, and an Arowana Titanium SiC tip top.
