Grip shapes

I would greatly appreciate it if one of TW's tennis experts would write a definitive guide comparing the different grip shapes made by different racket manufacturers. I find myself unhappy with Head (good groundies, poor serve/volley) and Wilson (good serve/volley, some discomfort with groundies) grip shapes, and somewhat happier with Babolat. Before I order any rackets I want to make sure I understand the differences in grip shapes so I can make sure to get one I am comfortable with.
 
When you click for additional photos of each racquet on this website, one of the photos is taken head-on of the grip cross-section. I would think that would enable you to compare. You seem to know what you like, so look for racquets with similar shape grips.

Not all of the racquets have that picture, though; also, it can be tough to visually see from the photo exactly how the grip shape is actually shaped.
