Even though I haven't been dead lifting, I've trained my back much more than the average guy, including plenty of heavy rows and pull/chinups, so upper back strength for me is definitely a non-issue.
Made me think about my wife's grip issues while deadlifting. She is very "back weak". She despises back work.
