Why settle for the average? Pull with the grip you like and switch grips prior to your jerk. Adjusting the grip between the clean and jerk is pretty common--some adjustments are very significant. It may take you awhile to figure out the best way to make the adjustment, but it's less work to learn an adjustment than to force yourself to jerk with a less than ideal grip.
