Monster squashes. Pick early?

As usual this season I'm growing some delicata squashes. I leave these on t he vine until the vine has completely died and dried back in the fall. It s eems to consistently produce very sweet, rich tasting fruits.
This year the plants have amongst the rest of the fruits produced four huge squashes and I wondered if they should be picked earlier than the rest of them, or let them wait for fall with all the rest. The color and striping o n these looks to be a month ahead of all the others and they are bigger now than any I've grown before or seen in stores.
Don't know what is best here.

i would leave them until the stems and leaves are done (as usual).
