Really depends on your civ and the map you are playing. If, for instance you are playing Egypt, then your spearmen are the weakest in the game and it would be best to skip age 1 spearman. Persia age 1 has very high Pierce armor so you can play quite aggressive vs most opponents, unless the map is large like Arabia where the rush distance makes it too easy to defend against.

It depends on a few factors. When you're on a map with really defensible hunts (Equal Footing) it can be a bit risky because you're opponent will have more time to react, safer gather spots, longer to gather/age/get out counter units. The trick is to make sure you don't over commit and try and disrupt the eco as much as possible for as little invested as possible. If you do that well, then it can absolutely be worth it. You can age around the same time, with a more intact eco, better structure progression, and a smooth transition to eco plays.

zuta and risen post both made good points.

In general I would say egypt should not age 1 spear rush. Greek should not age 1 rush either, but maybe make age 1 spearmen to defend an age 1 rush. Celts probably have the strongest age 1 rush and it can be really good, persia age 1 sparabara rush can also be really good.

whatever you do when you spear rush, don't over invest into it just use it to contain pressure
