Apparently Ironmind came up with a chart that defined grip strength has having three components, namely crushing, pinching, and supporting. I've also noticed the same thing as you, that the carryover between the two isn't as great as would be expected. Myself, I can close the coc#1 12 times with my right hand but still have my hands open with a 285 deadlift, whereas some people are DO their deadlift close to 350 who cant match the feat.
