I have searched and read and read a lot of really old post from 2 years ago about recommended difficulties like a minimum for an S4 at 2048 and 1 difficulty per GH/s etc.  In running experiments against best share and share rates for different difficulties what do you guys like to run specific miners a?t Especially you guys that have found modern blocks.

antminer s3
antminer s3+
s4
s5 & +
s7 etc..

Some pools want my s4 at 2048 then others it jumps up to 8096.  Best share is always higher when at higher difficulty but I'm sure the share rate is lower.  If you could give me your thoughts on this I would greatly appreciate it.

The pool is supposed to do it all for you, assuming the pool software is good enough.

I'm not challenging your knowledge at all.   I know yours far exceeds mine.  Maybe I'm just thinking about this in the wrong context, but do you not think overall network difficulty in needing such a large share to solve a block and the advancement of ASIC chips have made any difference?

Am I wrong that the higher difficulty the larger the share possibility could be?

I guess I'm coming at this from the angle of working on a stratum and it auto adjusting correctly with highest probability to solve a block for each individual specific miner model.  + I just wanted other miners opinions.

What diff you mine at makes absolutely no difference to your chance of finding a block.

So it is just for specific hardware for the most part then?

It's just for network bandwidth.

When you say network bandwidth, do you mean bitcoin network or the miners own network?  I've got Google Fiber being installed in a month or so. With a 1Gb connection, would it be smarter or benefit in any way to raise or lower the difficulty on my miners?

Between miners and pool only. Again, there's zero advantage to changing diff.
