gl on and off the tables.
Both opinions on this have their merit.
On the one hand raising the same amount will make reading your range harder wheras varying betsizes will make your opponenents wonder what the hell you're up to with your 666 or 425 bet now.
In essence mixing both concepts might be the most effevtive.
Let's say I make my late position (hj,co,ntn) bets between 2.1 BB and 3.99 BB (all deep stacked) depending on opponents left behind to act.
The smaller bets will mostly keep the pot and my possible c-bet smaller and the bigger will either build a large pot vs blinds who are calling too much
or put more pressure on medium stacks acting behind.
There's no general rule though, it all depends on many situational circumstances.
