    I have a Tour 10 VE MP and I want to change the grip size from a 4 1/2 to a 4 3/8. I know that Volkls have a rectangular grip shape but I have read that that the VE grip shapes are even more rectangular than normal. If I order a pallet from TW will it be the normal Volkl rectangular shape or the extreme VE rectangular shape? Are the two shapes interchangeable if I wanted the less rectangular shape? Thanks.

    I ordered Volkl pallets from TW on two separate occasions. The first I got from them were the rectangular shaped and the last two I got are the more boxy shaped. It's pretty annoying to get two different shaped pallets when I'm trying to standardize my racquets.

    So the answer is, I don't know what you're going to get if you order from TW.

    FYI

    The stock Volkl T10 VE grips are more rectangular in shape.

    There has only ever been one Volkl handle pallet shape that i know of..every pallet I have ever dealt with has been identical to the others (other than numbered size of course). They use only one pallet shape. VE grips use the same pallets as the other frames..

    Nobadmojo,

    I hear ya on the Volkl pallets which are supposed to be the same, but I'm telling you I put the last one on and it feels like my old Wilson Pro Staff Classic 6.1 handle shape. Definitely different from the stock pallets and previous Volkl pallets I've changed.

    Don't know what happened unless a wrong pallet was accidently sent.
