do you have your hands pointed towards your legs or away? and how wide?
overhand group and usually pretty close to shoulder width.
Double overhand with pinkie on the rings.
Yeah I heard of guys doing under hand grip and tearing their bi's! I think that is how Dorian tore his? Overhand thumb from the smooth seems comfy to me!
Usually overhand and anywhere from shoulder-width to bench grip. Sometimes I'll go underhand for a change of pace.

Back in the day (circa. 1978) Larry Pacifico wrote an article for Iron Man Magazine (Perry and Mable Raider from Alliance, NE) and discussed his bench press routine.
Larry set over 100 WR.
Larry thought bent rowing with a reverse grip was important as a supplemental exercise for benching.
When I do bent rows, I do a few sets with a regular grip and then a few sets with a reverse grip (not to be confused with the alternate grip used for deadlifting.)
I too do bent over row w/ a under-hand grip albeit not too heavy... Same w/ pull-up and pull-downs while really tensing and flexing the shoulder blades together at the bottom.
As with many other rear-delt, mid-upper back exercises, they really assist a lot w/ the BP.
I do overhand as well. I can't really even imagine doing the exercise with an underhand grip.
ain't nuttin but a peanut.
You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe

I dropped bent rows as they were screwing up my DL recovery. But if I was doing them I would Try doing them the same grip as your bench. I do all my lat work like that and I think it has a carryover.
