Default Best lock stitch for fonts

Hello, I was curious what you guys use for lock stitching your fonts, I find with tiny fonts the lock stitch is so visible, what do you guys use? My options for lock stitches is Line, Basic, Diamond, & Triangle. Currently, I start my lock stitch with basic and end it with Line, but still not happy with it, especially on smaller fonts.

Thanks!

I use a diamond lock stitch because it seems to hold better than the straight, but it will leave a mark in the small fonts. I move the fonts as close together as possible without crowding and leave a jump stitch between them without tying off each letter. That way you only have the tie off scar on a few.

Thanks, I do normally use jump stitching but some logos have fonts that have big gaps in them, and I hate how I see the lock stitch. I just assumed the line stitch would be the cleanest, but when doing locks on small letters I can always see it, and I hate the way it looks :P
