That's the thing about predictor lifts. They are only chosen as such because they correlate well with documented performance. Yes, the power snatch would be a better power developer for the person, but across the sport as a whole, the power clean has been accepted as a predictor over the snatch (probably because its easier for people to do). Now as far as your own data, I would use the power snatch to see if what you are doing is working or not, absolutely.
