As has already been made apparent the answer to your question will depend on who you ask and where they fish.
I can tell you that in the PNW the size sold more then any other, across all brands and price points is a 13' to 13'4"-7wt.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
