Head PT57A pallets

I'd like to change pallets on my Head PT57A for two reasons:
1) go down one size (from L3 to L2)
2) prefer Wilson shape (less rectangular)
Which pallets will fit? Also, I've read that TK82S, assuming they will fit, are too much squareish (ala Prince). Wilson shape is perfect for me. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Any opinions on unstrungcustoms.com 3d printed pallets?
They 3d print pallets with Wilson shape for Head hairpins et viceversa, etc.

Thanks Erhard, but I'd like a less rectangular shape. On the other hand, many think that TK82S are too squareish. I'd love to have a Wilson shape.
I agree with u about the 82s being to square. I made a solution with sports tape that I put in 2 layers at the left and right of the pallets but not in the middle on both sides (by the middle I mean the part in the middle when the racquet lies flat down on the ground). This makes the grip feel more like a wilson shape. Another thing is that the pro stock hairpins seems to be a little little fraction thicker in the grip so when you install a 82s pallet, there’s a small gap between the pallets making them even more square.

Hey, I'm doing a research project for my masters year sports engineering degree to determine if the grip preferences people have for their rackets have any correlation (either consciously or subconsciously) with their hand anatomy and playing styles. I need to do a lot of data collection for analysis so was wondering if anyone would be able to fill out a short survey? It should take no more than 10 mins and all you need is a ruler or tape measure, your racket and a strong preference for your racket handle/grip! Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

TK82S is basically on all HEAD racquets now outside of the classic line. Have a grab at a tennis store or one of your friend's racket and see how you like it.

Use TK82S pallet, like I do in my Head Liquidmetal Radicals. It saves my HEAD racquets from the junkyard.
I hate TK82 pallet. I don't undestand how someone can like that rectangular form.
