    I use a 5" coating rod for coating 4x5 and 5x7, and I have an 8" version for 8x10 prints. I've never tried to coat an 8x10 with the smaller rod. I suspect you may end up with artifacts in the finished print. Easy enough to try though!

    Yeah, I would always try to coat in one pass to prevent partially overlapping passes. It's just asking for variations in density.
    My rod is something like 10" and I use it for both 4x5 and 8x10. A wider rod for a smaller print works just fine; the opposite, I wouldn't even bother trying.
