Default pullups--so close yet so far away

So I can do a pull-up, but not from a dead hang. So close yet so far away. I can do a neutral grip pull-up on rings and just about every variation, and I can do a pullup on the Grav without any assistance, no problem. I can even start from standing on the Grav and do that. I can do band pullups, jumping pullups, etc. kipping but not from a dead hang, etc. It's that quarter inch or whatever it is that I can't get. Body rows and all the other variations I've tried to build up to it haven't helped. Is doing band pullups from a dead hang my best bet?
