everybody will be different, and have their own preference, and will think their way is the best way.
same as the choice of 2 stroke oil. some will only use castrol. some putoline.
i just use a good quality oil, from a known brand. normally whatever i can get on offer/cheapest at the time.
as far as fuel/oil ratio is concerned, i chop and change until i find what i think is best for the bike.
i havent had mine long enough to experiment yet, but as an example i used 80ml mix last time and found the bike smoked a little too much for my liking, and my mates were complaining who werre riding behind me.

If the bike is running nice on Putoline why not stick with it? I'd only change if you feel it does'nt work.
I use A747 as my main oil (as a treat due to the smell and superior lubrication) but if going out for a day with mates I use the Putoline strawberry. I use the Puto as I know it mixes with other fuels and oils where as A747 does not. This helps if you run out and need to blag a litre to get back to the truck.
A747 is awesome but you do need to have your jetting set right and get the motor and pipe hot once in a while to burn off the worst deposits. I have to say I have no problems using it but maybe the odd tankful of Puto help burn it off?
I have no spooge either so it can't all be bad. My bike is a 200cc so maybe that helps as you "give it more beans" than a 250+.

There are some synthetic oils on the market that do not seem to provide good protection when at ratios higher than 30:1. I do not include castrol, shell or putoline in that category.
I have seen trials engines that have significant wear after 2 to 3 years use when run on synthetic oils at 75:1. The same maufacturrers engines run on semi synthtic at 25:1 or 30:1 have virtually no wear.
If you look at quite a few makes of oil it says mix at manufacturers recomendations up to 50:1 ie the oil company does not expect the product to be used at over 50:1.
With a barrel replate and new piston costing near £400 I now recomment running at 30:1 on semi synthetic.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool

That equates to roughly 66:1 ratio.
For my old Techno, they advise 70:1 on semi synthetic.
I'd say 30:1 is very conservative and you'll not be burning all of the oil.
