A little of both. For me it comes down to how well or how tight I am fishing that day or piece of water for that moment. When casting up river the tighter I am, faster into the drift, the more takes you feel and receive through the sighter. Sometimes when you cast up river depending on current and structure it can take more or less time to get tight. This is the critical time to get the slack out. Too much slack - no detection on the sighter or feel. Once tight and coming towards you and beside you it is mostly sighter and some feel. This is where top rods do better than the average rod. Why? Unless you are drifting completely off the bottom, you are touching rocks here and there on a drift. Rocks will move your sighter just like a light hit. But a good angler will know the difference in the feel of a bite or tap, to a rock. Some say it out loud, others keep it in and some just smile. You reset make the same drift and when it gets close to the "spot" you look for and hinge in the sighter or that touch you had in the last drift that alerted you and set the hook quickly. We all have sighters and we all stare and watch them for the whole day and we get good at reading them but the guy who has the spidey sense to the lightest of takes..... has the feel.
