I have the same problem - trying to kip helps me get past that point, though I am trying to minimize the kip at the bottom (plus I can't kip worth sh**) in order to crank out dead hang PUs. I found over the last week that I am needing less and less kip to get past the initial sticking point. I think this is because the small amount of kip allows me to stay hanging on the bar between reps, thus increasing my strength needed to get past that stick point. Before, I would drop off the bar after a few reps 'cause I couldn't do any more (since I wasn't kipping).

So the point is kipping helps me stay on the bar more, thus motivating me to do more reps when I'm already fatigued, rather than just drop off.
