I heard this racket has a rectangular shaped handle. Has anyone hit with it and what did you think? Will the rectangular shape go away if an overgrip is put one? any input will be helpful

All Head racs. do. Hate their shape. Overgrip won't do much.

That was a reason I got rid off it.

On my PT280's, I remove the grip, and place a 1/2" strip of lead tape down each side bevel (the longer sides of the rectangle), and 4 strips of electrical tape over top of that, on each side. Re-grip, then add overwrap. The result becomes pronounced bevels, plus a more rounded shape that fits the hand a lot better.

The Head grip shape is tragic, but the racquets are sweet. That's life for you.

Lucky for me, I like to add a lot of weight anyway. That grip surgery, plus ample lead at 3 & 9 results in a nice balance + overall weight.
