There is no ideal speed for Variable Weight or No Limits, it depends on personal preference and on the freedivers ability to equalize. The heavier the sled the faster you need to equalize, and this can be a problem for many people, especially on a head-down dive. At the beginning you will start with a slower sled and once you get used to the speed you can decide to add weights and make as fast as you manage to descend without missing an equalizaiton
