    First question: are all Head grips shaped the same as the LM Instinct? Because I just got one and I love the racket overall, but I don't like the more oval, rectangular grip shape. All other grips I have had have been the same more circular and even shape (Dunlop, Wilson, Prince, Yonex, Babolat, even some other Heads), but this is really weird and uncomfortable. If I end up getting this racket or the LAM Prestige (if it has the same shape), I may want to try to change the shape for better comfort. Is this advisable? How would I do this to get the best result and minimize adding size to the grip?

    Head and Volkl grip are rectangular. To make them more squared, just remove the grip and place two or three layers of electric tape on the two main bevels.
