I prefer wands because they are smaller and I find it easier to customise them with personal items, and easier to attach quartz to the tip, I find it better to channel energy through it to it all comes down to personal preference

I use a stang, which is similar to a staff. It's what I prefer, because I find it useful for channeling energy in a more direct manner (in my practice). I don't use it for any type of spell casting (though I have used them for cursing in the past) but mainly for channeling energy and grounding when I do other work.
I have both, though I rarely use either. I don't mind them and I will use them if needed. I'd generally use a wand if it's more of a "good" spell I'm casting, whereas I'd use a staff for something "bad".
Staff every time of a day:
1. more durable than a wand
2. because I mostly use runes(instead of stones or crystals) as focal points and conduits, extra space along the staff gives me plenty of room to inscriber them
3. if you are bored can be used to practice and kill some time
4. they just feel more comfortable/natural to me
