I don't use/own a PB 10 mid, but I do use modified Volkl handles.
I have them setup as follows :

- 1 layer of head tape on the diagonal bevels
- 3 layers of head tape on the left side/right side bevels
- no tape on the top and bottom bevels.

This rounds/squares up the handle a bit. It also slightly increases grip size. I use a leather grip + Supergrap overgrip and I can still feel the bevels just fine with that setup. Hope this helps.

Edit
Since I use a 1hbh I only tape half of the handle since I don't touch the upper half, and hence don't need to modify it. This keeps the added weight to a minimum as well. It's not really noticeable.
