Over thinking alert!
I hook gripped up until about 200kg, then changed to mixed and got an extra couple of KG's cos my grip was failing with hook grip. My grip is hardly ever an issue though, so it will be different for you.
People pull huge lifts with hook, so I dont think give up on it. Cant find much online about Vincent Urbank, but he does mention lifting weights as a teenager, so I reckon its a good bet he was doing olympic lifts, so has spent years hook gripping.
thanks Baldy I mentioned the muscle fiber thing because I've also experienced being able to lift more when I grip the bar tightly with most of the lifts.
Anyway the wrist is fast recovering
