The rectangular handle (Head) seems to work better when grabbing the racquet with a continental grip, so it feels comfortable for serves and volleys. I can hit great flat serves with this grip.

I can take a pic later between a Volkl, head and prince buttcaps if you want
I got my C10s, so here is a pick of the Prince, Wilson, and Volkl buttcaps if anyone is interested. FYI, the Wilson buttcap is from an ancient Force 85, so it may not represent current racquets.

I have only played with the C10 for 3 hours now, but the switch hasn't been too bad considering I was pretty much a life long Prince user. Need more testing. FWIW, I have only used a Head racquet once, and absolutely hated the grip, it seemed super rectangular. This one data point is likely useless, but I thought I would throw it out there.
