Welcome aboard HTGT.

I've grown 3 of your 4 choices.
They are great, and I suspect you'll have no problem getting good results.
Good luck

In my experience:

Florida Sumatra is great as a wrapper and also as a filler. Leaf ends up a nice uniform brown and makes for a pretty as well as great tasting wrapper.

A great, really sweet, creamy strain is Glessnor. I love using it as a wrapper or binder though it usually turns out multi-colored and looks unusual when used as a wrapper. Tastes really good.

Little Dutch is a fantastic solid filler. Nice dark rich classic tobacco flavor. Love it. Leaf is a little gnarly for wrapper and even binder. Best as a filler in my experience.

I have not yet smoke tested my Conn. Broad leaf yet.

I grew some H142 a couple years back, it was good, but I liked Florida Sumatra and some other strains better.
