It's personal preference. That is due to two factors: stroke and application.

Each person has a stroke that they feel more comfortable with certain action. My stroke preference is medium fast to fast. My girlfriend's stroke is medium to medium fast.

Application is important. Those throwing soft presentations may work best with slower rods. Those throwing large streamers may do better with quicker rods.
