Default what size rod for small mouth?

what is your preferred rod wt for small mouth fishing in tn? my biggest current rod is a 5wt winston and it is fun to land one on it... but i have a hard time casting bigger flies with it ...i am a mediocre caster at best

i used to have an really stiff orvis 8wt but did not cast it well and found it too fatiguing for river fishing

i have used my father's 7wt scott on the new river in va...which is pretty big water. good for casting big flies...but not as much fun to "fish" with...it was a little on the fast side

what size do most people prefer? i like a slower action and will fish primarily on small to medium size rivers. any specific rod recommendations would be most welcome
