Yeah....takes a while to get to used to it, but your hands/palms strengthen very quickly and before you know it, it's second nature.

The problem with an alternating grip is that most people don't learn properly from the start. They continue that bad form as they progress into heavier weights.

I have witnessed many ruptured bicep tendons because of the uneven torsion from an alternate grip deadlift.

Not saying that this applies to you as you know what you are doing. But the newer generation of lifters we see coming into our gym think they know it all, and don't want to listen to you.

There are so many subtleties to setting up most of the big lifts, that it takes awhile to perfect. If they would drop their egos and learn the right way, they minimize their chance of injury down the road greatly.
