I know Rippetoe recommends a thumbless grip while low bar squatting.

It makes it easier to dump the weight if necessary and it achieves that nice straight wrist angle when doing heavy low bar back squats.

I still have shoulder flexibility issues to work through so my wrists still aren't straight but I noticed that still going thumbless seems to ease the wrist/elbow pain from the load.
