Flat Dumbbell Press Elbow Angle

In this video Meadows, Vaillant and Tate dumbbell press with different elbow angles.
Which style of pressing is best?

Goals: Improve pushing strength and gain mass in the pectorals, shoulders and triceps.

What I know:
-Flaring elbows targets the chest better, but hurts the shoulders in the long run
-Tucking elbows targets the triceps better, but doesn’t target the chest as good.

Common sense: 45 degree elbow angle is best if I want strength, overall size and safety, so John Meadows.

I answered my own question. I’m posting this anyways. I’m weird.
