I use a LM Instinct and recently tried a FP Prestige and FP Instinct. Does anyone else feel that the grip shape of the new Head FP racquets are a little more rounded out than the LM Head grip shape, which is more rectangular? I felt the grips on the FP sticks was not as rectangular. It could be all in my Head :p. Thanks for any opinions.

I'm changing the pallets on my Head racquets to Wilson shaped ones, as i can't get my forehand/backhand grips right with the Head shaped pallets.

A Pro Shop in Sydney Australia makes moulds of whatever shape you want, they do it for the pros and us mere mortals as well. It costs about 30-40 dollars per handle. That's why i use head sticks, as their handles are changeable. If you look at the Vantage website, it shows you the different grip shapes.

Any chance you could advise which pro store given that TW doesn't provide this service ?

I have some FP prestiges as well as a Liquidmetal prestige and there is definately a huge difference in grips shapes with these.
