3 bet ranges Bluff:value ratios

Hey guys. Lately I've been toying with some 3 betting ranges since my overall 3 bet is little low (around 6.5%). I'm 3 betting decent amount from the blinds but I just can't get my self to 3 bet more IP, I'm just afraid I might end up overbluffing. I know 3 betting is very dependent on people's F3B stat but is there any general 3 betting ratio that you can use vs decent regular and just adapt from there? Is something like 50-50 ratio horrible? I'm somewhere around 35% bluffs-65% value ,depending on position but I never really go above that. Also would appreciate if you guys could share your 3 bet stats by position so I can have some general idea.


So after digging a little I saw some general 3 bet positional stats :
MP: 4%
CO: 6%

Now I'm not quite sure how to obtain these but I went ahead and tried creating some ranges. Problem is they ended up looking insane. My logic is if we are 3 betting 4% vs utg in pretty much all positions then in CO we should 3 bet around 8% vs MP to obtain the desired 6% 3 bet(Average of both positions available to 3 bet against in the CO). This by itself is already too much. Funny thing happens when we I ended up constructing BUTTON vs CO range. If I 3 bet 4% vs EP, 8% vs MP , then vs CO I should be around 12% to obtain the necessary 8%. Using a polarized range in the last scenario I end up with more like 60% bluffs vs 40% value which seems very questionable to me but then again 8% BUTTON 3 bet doesn't sound too high in theory. If anyone can correct me here , go ahead. I love experimenting but it is already a very drastic change in my game and could become costly so would love to hear opinions.
