I'm simming a collection of mid power rockets of interest, and while OR hasn't given me any warnings yet, how slow is too slow when looking at velocity off the rod?

This is my first build thread, so go easy on me ;)
I've flown a few minimum diameter rockets in the past, and I typically prefer to build them with four fins. However, one issue I've ran into with four-finned rockets is with regards to launch equipment. Every time I fly one, I have to use...
