In my opinion that is better than kicking down a gear no matter what the load.

I don't have any instrumentation. But being familiar with my a/t vehicles, I know the minimum speeds I can "tease" the upshifts and torque converter lockup at by slightly lifting the gas pedal. Top gear all the way, baby.
