    underhand employs more work by the biceps.
    over hand - more work by lats

    Personally I find little difference in between either grip.

    I use an overhand grip as I have injuries in the bicep area and they will not like the underhand version.

    when i've done rows in the past i found that if i done rows with an under hand grip i could'nt space my grip to far apart although i could get the same weight closer to my body  than with an overhand wider grip.. if i was you i would alternate grips therefor targeting different areas of your back..

    i like the overhand grip because i find that it hits my lats better, but i suppose it depends upon what you personaly find is a more comfortable
    grip.
    i.e., the more comfortable the exercise, the more likely you are to put into the exercise, therefore
    the greater the benefit.
    just my take on it, could be wrong.

    i go with overhand due to it being more comfortable also puts more work onto the back than the biceps.
