    Just wondering where I can buy a 5/8" pallet for a Redondo? I sent an e-mail to someone selling a 41/2" grip and will probably buy it if available.

    Thanks!

    I don't think anyone has had any luck contacting PK, myself included. They don't respond to the email they have linked on their site.

    Thanks CJ & AO...I'll probably look for Head pallets then if I buy the used Redondo.

    You might want to try Gamma. Their pallets seem very similar on the 340X, though I can't confirm that 100%. Gamma actually has pretty good customer service, too.

    Thanks for the info. AO, I heard of Gamma's excellent customer service but didn't know they were using pallets.

    Interestingly enough, neither did they until I told them. I think there was a disconnect between the factory and HQ.

    I've bought pallets for PK rackets directly through the distributor a year or so ago.
    I first emailed the email address on the PK site, and they responded saying they'd connect me to someoen who could help, but after that there was no response, so I emailed again and they came through. There was a supplier here in san diego, so he was able to send me a couple sets. They came out to $5 shipped per set + buttcap. Pretty damn good price compared to the nonsense Head charges. This info should help you out:

    Kevin Gilbert

    kgil30@yahoo.com

    They're located in Encinitas, CA. Good luck!

    ^^ I sent an email through PK's site about a pallet last week. Kevin was very quick to respond. $13.50 shipped for one out to me in TX. Coincidentally, eldub, I'm taking off a 5/8 pallet. If you don't have any luck, I'll mail you mine.

    The same Mr. Gilbert never responded to my emails when I contacted him ... i don't know ... a year or two ago.

    The pallet prices are going up fast, aren't they?

    There was a guy in one of the asian countries selling PK stuff - maybe Anirut remembers who it is/
