I understand that a Volkl racket (ex. Tour10MPVE) has a system of replacing a grip size using palettes. I would like to change the grip size using palettes (to go from 4 1/2" to 4 5/8").

Any ideas where I can find these? I checked TW listings and the Volkl website and did not find a link.

Thanks for your help. :)

It's been a couple years since I checked a Volkl dealer catalog, but I believe they are listed there. If it's still listed, you may be able to get a Volkl dealer to order one for you. They do exist -- I've got a size 6 pallet kit -- but I've never seen one in captivity.

I guess I'll have to find a U.S. dealer and ask the question. Seems strange that palettes are not that easy to find. I'll check some more.

If anyone else has any idea -I would appreciate it.

It is my understanding because of some sort of liability issues with Volkl,
they have tightened up selling them on line. However, I've heard that TW has them , but you must CALL them to order..

Hope this helps,

Liability issue with a palette? :confused: Hmmm...seems odd. But, I will call TW when they open today. Thank you! :)

Yeah, seems odd to me too! Heard someone actually injured themself
during installation, so I guess Volkl wants them installed by authorized
dealers?

I was able to get a couple awhile back from TW. They are great when
you are enlarging more than one size, if only one size or less, I usually
use a grip sleeve.

Give TW a call. They have pallets. You need to order them on the phone.

Did you mean a heat shrink sleeve or just an overgrip? Thanks!
