I usually prefer Mediums, but I've recently become obsessed with grinds and italics. I think it's all about my mood. I've been a little buoyant/manic lately, and my preference for extremely thick, wet nibs followed... Recently I purchased a Custom 74 music nib, and I was lucky enough to purchase a broad Rotring Newton that a local nibmeister ground into a wet, thick cursive italic. Also very lucky to have an old Franklin Christoph SIG nib by Jim Rouse before he passed- that's an interesting nib!
