Should Gallade use a choice band or choice scarf?

Well, I figured my UU team lacks an offensive powerhouse, so Gallade jumped in my mind. I thought about it, and I realized that a Choiced Gallade will do even better - so my question is, A choice Scarf or a Choice Band?

Hmm. I must say this is interesting, But I think a Choice Band would do better here, for an interesting twist.

Gallade (M) @ Choice Band

Role: Choiced Powerhouse

Trait: Steadfast

EVs: 64 HP / 160 Atk / 252 Def / 32 Spd

Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Drain Punch
  • Psycho Cut
  • Shadow Sneak
  • Earthquake

80 Speed is worth being Scarfed on, but then You're basically Scarfing yourself to be a basic sweeper. But banding him, That takes his 125 Attack stat, and Shoots it up high.
With Ev's invested, to get his Defense to where he doesn't HAVE to go first, Hp gets a few to be slightly more bulky, Attack is obvious. And 32 Spd To outspeed things that Carry 80 Speed and have nothing to boost it.

If your Galade's nature is adamant give him choice scarf,
or choice band if it is Jolly.
