Poly pipe size????

Hello, I am working on a system we have 8 gallons a minue with a pressure of around 35 psi +/- we have some long runs on some zones almost 200 feet on one and less on others. I am planning on 7-8 heads with .75 gpm in order to reduce the number of zones there are three zones as of now. Should I run all 1" poly or 1" poly to the valves and 3/4" poly for the runs? I want to make sure I have enough flow... any and all suggestions are welcom. Thanks

.75 gpm heads are nothing to design with for an entire system. The dollar savings on an install won't make up for poor system performance.
