I know this has been beat to death but what rod length and action do you prefer for top waters especially walking the dog vixen type baits?

I like a 7' M to MH with fast tip. Most of it depends on weight of the bait. I like the 7' range length though as for me it seems easier to work the bait with. On the full size baits with the larger trebles I want something that is a bit stouter to drive the hooks home. I prefer graphite for this. More than anything its personal preference. I have experimented a bunch with different rods and this just fits me better.
