    I don't know anything about head replacement pallets but I really would like to replace mine on my Micorgel Prestige MP because they are kind round.

    Any tip regarding which model shape I should chose?

    Thanks

    The pallet you are using is the TK82, the most used in the last years (since the liquidmetal or fxp series)
    The "classic" head shape (rectangular, similar to the newer TK82) is the TK76 (i.e. I. Prestiges).
    The latest "Speed" series as the new TK82S, wich is similar to Wilson grip shape...Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the info!
    Here is ontehr question about pallets: is the tk82s similar to the babolat pallets? Asking this bcause the tk82 on my microgel is kind hard to have a got grip on plus is distroing my thumb. I have a cut inside my thumb since I have started using the microgel and it wont go away because the corner of the pallet hits that spot.

    Thanks for the links Torres, I saw your therad last night while looking for an answer to my question and I thought it's very informative but I was more wondering if the tk82s is similar to the babolat pure strom gt tour pallet.

    if you are cutting your thumb you may want to check how you are gripping as well....i would guess you have it real tight like nadal

    zapvor, I have never issue with the thumb, in fact before I switched racquet I just had a normal healthy callus. Now the racquet kind slip from my hand maybe because of the different grip and causes this cut.....that's my best guess though!
