Spreader pattern

Which spreader pattern is everyone using for their ride on machines , back and forth or racetrack style ? I find while spraying and spreading both back and forth seems best and while just spreading racetrack style . What's your opinion on this. Thanks Scott.

For me, it really depends on the lawn. I prefer to racetrack and just bullseyeing from my trim pass, but sometimes that is not as feasible. To me, the method depends on my ability to see my last pass best. I try to eliminate confusion and possible overlap or missed areas.

Back and forth, top to bottom, overlapping to center of last pass.
