Best Settings for Refine Edge? In CS 5 or 6?

For the people who've used the Refine Edge Tool, what from your experience are the best settings for Edge Detection and Decontaminate Colors?

I've begin playing around with it for the first time the past couple days and in the 1st pic I worked on, everything went smoothly. But in trying it on another image last night, I got a lot of tiny jaggies along the edges of my model's body when using Refine Edge to remove her from one image and into another.

Have you run into this problem and what settings did you use to fix that? Do you use a low Feather setting in RE or do you use the regular Select/Modify/Feather? Or any ata ll? I'd like to keep all the detail & every last strand of hair when using RE, but what do you think? How many use Feather in Refine Edge?

Whatever your favorite settings are, let me know.
