XGen blocking: 58-73%
Inosines instead of barcode location: up to 33%
perfect complement: 45%
random nucleotides: up to 35%

This is for PE37 sequencing. To compare samples where I had run reads longer, I clipped them back to PE37 to have a fair comparison between different conditions.
Your % on-target will increase the longer your read lengths are; I saw PE101 of 82% translate to 69% when I clipped it to PE37.
Did you add any kind of termination to the blocking oligo?
