    Pretty close. I'd add Yonex and Pro Kennex is also similar. I can switch between these with no problem.

    Agreed. Prince has the roundest one, and Head the most rectangular one. Dunlop has a pretty similar shape to Wilson/Babolat as well.

    I feel that Tecnifibre actually have more rectangular shape then Head these days. The new Speed-line from Head have a new grip-shape,, more like babolat i m o..

    babolat's a bit rounder IMO, but the grip sizes also seem to run a bit larger than normal.

    I remember the HEAD iprestige series being very rectangular. It seems like with each new line they have become more "Wilson" like. They have probably got allot of feedback over the years and know they would appeal to a wider audience (like me) if they had a rounder shape.

    I love my Prestiges, but had to get new pallets installed that cost way too much. It's good to hear the Speeds are more rounded.
