As my pappy used to say, "What ever turns your crank!"
There is no right or wrong way, despite how vociferous some can get.
It's like asking, which is better, blondes, brunettes, or red heads.

Absolutely matters not, when heeled 20 degrees on a beat into a fresh breeze.
Nothwithstanding, my personal preference for all exterior wood, is Epifanes.
