    How do the grip shapes compare between the PB10 Mid and the C10 Pro? I demoed the PB10 Mid and it was very square compared to other racquets. Is the C10 the same way?

    The PB10 also felt very polarized. Is this also true of the C10 Pro?

    I can't comment on the C10, but putting lead tape at 3 and 9 on my BP10 plus two layers of overgrip on the handle works for me!

    I am really surprised the grip shape feels very square to you. :-?
    Volkl grip shape used to be very rectangular (like my PB10 Mid). I put two layers of textile tape at the top and bottom pallet faces.

    Here are the 2 grips, side-by-side:

    Granted, they are no the same scale, but they look pretty similar to me.

    Great way to compare. They look similar to me as well.

    You probably mean "rectangular" shaped, as the bevels are far less wide than the top/bottom/sides. The grip shape of the C 10 and the PB 10 are from the identical pallets.
