Default Table Runners - batting or no?

When you are making table runners, do you use a batting? I've seen both answers. I've always done mine with a batting, but this particular one is for a friend who is paying me for it and I want it to be excellent. So, give me your best arguments pro and con batting, and what type if you do use it. I do plan on quilting it.

I use 80/20 batt in my runners. I like how it looks with quilting .

I've made a lot of table runners, and I use Pellon #PEL988, which is a very low loft batting, recommended for table runners.

I've made a lot of table runners and use Quilters Dream Cotton Select. Personally, I don't care for table runners that don't have batting in them.

I have always used batting. Mine is Warm and Natural so it is fairly low.

I use Warm and Natural. I like a flat batting for a table runner.

Batting gives them a more finished look in my opinion. I always use Warm and Natural batt

I prefer with batting because it looks so much nicer. I tried making one without and it looked sort of limp and unfinished.

I prefer Pellon 988 over quilt batting. It lays nice and flat, and just looks more polished because it's thin yet still has body.

I always use batting. Usually scraps from other projects. I use Warm and Natural or Quilter's Dream.
