Stance Sumo DL Assistance

How important is it to match the stance used for sumo DL from the floor with the stance used for assistance exercises such as GMs, RDLs, and leg press?

Any personal experience or useful links?

Minimal for me. The only thing I do Sumo are actual Pulls from the floor and Block Pulls. RDL, Stiff Legs, Everything else is pretty much standard run of the meal form and stance.

Not very important working different muscles different ways is always best in my opinion.

Well, tried some sumo stance GMs and they felt very shitty in a bad way. I guess I bury that stance matching idea.
