Default close grip bench- hand placement question

My normal grip is index on the power rings.

I've been doing close grips as accessory work after paused comp grip on bench days. My close grip (thumbs length away from smooth) is getting almost as strong as my comp grip. I'm trying to decide if i should keep my close grip where i'm working it now, or if i should move it in some to get the most benefit on my comp bench.

My bench session yesterfay was 4 sets of 3 with 280- paused. Then i did 275x3 close grip tng. Videos are in my log if you'd like to see my form/ technique.
