    I know many of you who hate Head grip have taken measures to make it more square and rounder, but has anyone tried making a square grip (i.e. Prince) into the grip shape of Head/Volkl grip?

    If so, then how did you do it?

    (It'd be great if anyone actually did it with POG, but that's asking for too much)

    Just take the non heat shrink ways to increase the grip size, but only put them on the two bevels, so it creates a more rectangular shape. You could even just take of the grip and put duct tape on the bevels.

    Yeah. Get the non shrink Add-On and pick your bevels. Works like a charm.

    Yeah uh... I invented that procedure. Just like I invented the artificial heart.

    wouldn't that procedure increase the grip size of the racquet?

    and i don't see how one can take the grip off of POG...

    I modded it to a wilson-like grip, add tapes to all beveals except the top and bottom.
    The grip size increased so much that I have to remove the leather grip and use one over grip only to keep the same size. Later I added some lead at butt to keep the balance while reduced the total weight :)

    BTW what do you all think the differences between adding tapes like me and only add to the side beveals?
