What runes should I use for caitlyn?

I currently use

Marks: Flat atk damage
Seals: Armor
Glpyhs: CD
Quints: Flat Atk Damage.

are these good or are there better ones?

I mostly take the Flat attack damage for easier farming and last hitting early game

Arpen quints
Arpen marks
mp5/per level seals
CDR Glyphs.

Thats my setup

Edit: I should say this is my setup for all mana using AD champs.

MR or Attack Speed Glyphs, preferably Attack Speed.

Use MR, flat or per level, glyphs

Don't change your quints/marks; they let you farm better and do more damage to supports without a lot of armor (esp with 10% armor pen mastery). With a greater window to last hit, harassing is easier as well.

Well, I main Cait, along with a lot of other ADs quite a lot any time they are up for freebie, and I've come to use 2 sets of runes. I actually forked out 410 per red x 16 to fill out 2 pages, just for AD. These are what I use.

For Dominion:
Quint-Armor Pen
Red-more Armor Pen
Yellow-Armor itself
Blue-Magic Resist
I also buy a Brutalizer with Sunder, so that is 46 pen total. This is hands down the best build in Dom, there's no contest.

For Rift:
Quint-2 AD, 1 Mana Regen
Red-Full AD
Yellow-Armor
Blue-Magic Resist
Here I use Weapon Expertise and buy a Last Whisper, which is 46% pen total. The mana regen is because my AD heroes run dry extremely easily. Trust me the mana regen will pay off a lot more than that 1 extra AD rune. Before I learned how to slot mana regen, I run OOM all the time and it always hurt me by not being able to afford more ability spam.(And when you run OOM and can't get a kill with Ace, you will understand) This isn't the "best" build, as you will do less dps to heroes in favor of more dps to minions, but that is what I prefer. I farm the gold then rush my LW. The choice is up to you. If you want early hero dps, stack as much flat armor pen as you can get. If you want to be a better farmer and harder hitter late game vs armor stackers... then you can try out my build.

Note: Flat Armor penetration is better if the enemy has less than 100 armor, but weaker if the enemy has more than 100 armor. So it comes down to early game vs late game, and low armor targets vs high armor targets.
