With the overhead cast, I still put my upper hand at the top of the grip. I don't think it makes a terrible amount of difference. If you are spey casting however, it makes a difference depending on the style you choose to do. If you look at the first 2 videos jayboy posted, they are different styles. Eoin Fairgrieve does it the style I do. Henrik Mortensen does it Scandi style. I tried that style and didn't like it. First of all it helps to have a fast rod for scandi style. Just my opinion but I don't think you can cast as far scandi style.
