The one that’s better is probably the one that allows you to progressively overload the best as well as actually hits the targeted muscle.
Picking just one of those exercises for sure doesn’t mean no growth, however volume/intensity needs to be equated for if you choose to remove one exercise in a program where there’s meant to be both.
However the one that you should pick if you HAD to choose one is the one where the muscle is worked hard in it’s lengthened position – if you want elaboration on why then let me know.
