is the handle shape of the PK Redondo's more square like prince or more rectangular like head?
Something like Wilson's ... don't know if that would answer your question ...
A little more square than Dunlops and seemed to run small compared to Dunlop also.
that explains a lot. I know Wilson's to be more similar to Head than Prince.
Head's grip shape is a little too rectangular to me but, for comparison's sake, the PK grip is closer to Head than Prince (thank goodness).
Actually, I would describe Wilson as exactly in between the two; however, if those three are the only ones you have tried, then that may be an apt description - the Wilson is more boxy than the Head, but not quite as extreme as Prince. If you've tried a Dunlop, it's between the Wilson and the Head. Redondo, to me, feels like Wilson - maybe it's just me, but maybe even slightly more rectangular; just the slightest (Although my reference point for a Wilson grip is the Vantage Wilson grip, as I do not own any Wilson's and my only experience is when I use a friend's)
YES! YES! The Redondo's "just a tad" more rectangular than Wilson.
I remember adjusting the grip shape by adding just around 0.7 mm on both the flater sides to make it "just a tad more like Wilson".
My sense is that the range of shapes goes like this:
Square ------------------------------------- Rectangular
Fischer > Prince > Dunlop > Wilson > PK > Head
Does that seem right? Anyone found otherwise?
Keifers, you may be right.
I don't know about Fischer & Prince, but the Dunlop, Wilson, PK & Head/Volkl are certainly in that order.
For me, Wilson > PK > Dunlop. Otherwise right on.
Hmm, interesting... I just looked at my Dunlops: Revelation Tour Pro and MW 200G, and their grip shapes are different. The Tour Pro is more rectangular than Wilson PS and the MW 200G is more square.
I believe he has Dunlop and Wilson mixed - Dunlop is definitely more rectangular than Wilson.
