Not all rooster hackle is the same, the vast majority of strung rooster hackle that is sold is used on wet flies, whiting's american rooster hackle makes great wings and wet fly hackle. Rooster feathers are generally much longer in overall length than hen feathers although they can be just as webby. Generally any wet flies that have palmered hackle along the body all use rooster hackle due to the length of feather required.
