Ran this section on a 0.79 (rainchasers) which is between a low and medium on their calibrations, wouldn't recommend getting on at Camddwr Bleiddiad Gorge anywhere near this low, the first few (and only real notable) rapids are just nasty squeezes through boulder chokes and the following rapids to the bridge/carpark are nothing like the great grade 4 imagined, sure this section would be good with plenty more juice though!

At low/medium levels would recommend getting on at the bridge/carpark between Abergwesyn and Llanwrtyd Wells and off after the last significant rapid as the grade 4 sections here are worth the trip and easy to protect/re-run.
