Cheap pair of compression pants, as they're slippery. I bought 2 pairs for $25 over 5 years ago, and they're still good for deadlifting.

Pause deadlift is supposed to be with relatively light weights, at most about 70% of 1RM. It is deceptively hard. The trick is to use a weight that makes you use correct form, but not so heavy that you break form. If 155 fails, then you should only try up to about 140 next time. Like I said, it is about learning how to engage core muscles etc. NOT actually training for strength through working harder.

Hook grip will be tougher on any variation that goes for longer (time wise). Hook grip's main weakness is endurance, so if you do something like pause deadlift, Romanian or Stiff-Legged variations, it will be tough, especially after you've already done regular deadlifts. That's where straps often come in.
