With a fast reducer the paint flashes off sooner which means it has less time to smooth out or flatten which would tend to make it less smooth with more orange peel. There is also more chance of the paint going on too dry with a fast reducer. More chance of runs with a slow reducer.
A friend of mine owns a collision repair center with a VERY good reputation and he says he NEVER uses a fast reducer, even though he has a climate controlled booth and cooks the paint afterward. His problem is that when he has to match the factory paint so that panels all look the same, he has to purposely do it in such a way as to match the orange peel in the factory paint, it's easy for him to make it too good. If you look at new cars on a lot you will notice that they ALL have orange peel. For a good glossy paint job, use the slowest reducer you are able.
