    So guys, i've bought 3 TT Graphite mids some years a go. Two of them are grip 4 and the other one is grip 3.
    One of the grip 4 racquets broke on a mishit and i was left with two different grips, a applied a heat shrink sleeve to the L3 to transform it on a L4. But the racquet feels way different and the weight difference is about 12g.

    How hard would it be to install the pallet from the broken L4 racquet on the L3 racquet?

    It would take some work, but it's possible. Remove the butt cap first and post a picture here. If the handle beneath the "pallet" is rectangular, it's not that hard, actually. A sharp razor knife and a CAREFUL job would do it. Patience and you MIGHT succeed. Split the "halves" and just slowly cut your way along the handle. Don't rush even in the end, as the odds are against you. Remove the broken one first, of course. It can be irreversible if you screw up.

    its much easier to apply an extra overgrip or a thicker replacement grip on the L3, of course.

    Those racquets are not on a Pallet System. They have a molded handle.
    Volkl, HEAD, Pacific, and some Tecnifibre are on Pallets.

    Yeah, i know i know it isn't a pallet, i just use that term because i don't know how to call it. Is handle the right term?
    Is it possible or not?

    before you hack into your broken frame... there's a place in UK that says
    they can repair any cracked frame. Haven't used them myself but just fyi
