I know I read somewhere that Volkl has 3 types of pallet shapes available in their line up. Does anyone know which one comes on the beckers?
I want to move to a traditional shape and have used Attiva pallets in the past with great success.
Does any one know what pallets are available from most rectangular to most traditional shaped?
I believe the order is:
Type "R"
Type "S"
Type Attiva
but I need confirmation before I go cutting of my current pallets. I have some some Type "S' Pallets but they look very close to what is currently on my legend now.:

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There are many pallets systems. But with the higher level frames, there are only two: Regular BB(London/Melbourne) and Regular Volkl(PB 7, PB 10 Mid, X10). The S-Pallet is the Attiva pallet.

From rectangle to square: Reg Volkl>Reg BB>S/Attiva.

Where did you get the S-Pallets from?

The S pallets I have are from Volkl. So TM The "S" is the most square pallet that is closest to say a Dunlop or prince handle correct? If so, That's all I needed to know. Thank you

I got the pallets from a friend a fellow local Mass. poster. I will aski him if he is cool with providing his name. I paid a bit higher price than what I was able to find on the internet, but well worth it since DI tennis, an T express only carry basic replacement pallets.

Just installed an "S" pallet on one of My legends. Whole process took me about 30 minutes. the "s" grip is close to a dunlop/prince grip, so I am pretty happy with it.

The mark-up at DItennis is small, considering shipping from Volkl to them before they sell it retail. Anything fairly close is fair, especially since Attiva pallets are unavailable to the masses right now.

Played a 3 hour match today in 95Degree heat. Tried the new pallets and they are a hit. My 1HBH was much more automatic and in tune to how I normally play. Still not loving the poly on the mains. I am going to try some gut wth poly on the crosses later this week. My opponent today was a 28 year old 4.0 excellent all courter that hit with heavy spin off of both wings and rushed the net very well. The only thing I struggled with today was when I tried to change direction on my BH to go down the line, I really felt the flex, if I was even a tad late and eneded up missing some shots wide that I would have nailed down the line with my 6.1 95's. i also threw in more doubles than usual because I was going for more on my 2nd serves.
Spin production is awesome with this frame and the comfort is equal to my Ki5's. My opponent applauded how hard I was hitting my groundstrokes today and was surprised by how well I could mix pace & spins. I think once I find the right string & tension set up I will be good to go.
