Booking award with directly w/ VX directly vs partner redemption with HA

Looking to book a LAX > HNL award flight.

RT cost on VX is 23,724 points
I can do a partner booking on Hawaiian airlines for 20,000 points

Any thoughts on whether it's worth the extra 3724 points for to fly Virgin?

FWIW, I also have AA miles that I could use at the MileSAAver rate, but the RT would cost 40,000 miles.

Partner redemptions on HA are infamously hard to come by, so that's what you're going to run into there.
