The Wilson feels great in those departments. The serve just seems to sing. I know it's probably more to do with balance than with grip shape but it is certainly a factor.
For me it is exactly the other way around.

Yep, grip shapes are totally personal. It makes me think about discussions over bike saddles on cycling forums; what feels heavenly to one feels like hell to another.
