I can't help you with images, but the Polo 10 handle is very large, so unless you have larger hands, you'll find it a bit uncomfortable, whereas the Polo 8 handle is more manageable.
Nonetheless, I much prefer the knot in the former as I enjoy larger knots. Shy 
Best of luck to you.

Thanks Celestino. I love large handles - do you think it is  bigger or same as Rooney Style 3 size 3 (large) handle?

I don't have a Polo 8 but if you check my FS listing in the BST there is a picture of the Polo 10 next to a Jubilee and a TSN M6.

i had a polo 8 and own a couple polo 10s. the 10 is quite a bit larger than the 8 and it's the perfect handle for me. i just compared the 10 to a chubby 3, the base of the polo 10 is the same circumference as the chubby 3, but a good bit taller.

I believe the Polo 10 handle might be a bit taller than the Rooney, but it is nowhere as comfortable, for me, anyway. The Rooney feels much nicer because of the design and is one of the most aesthetically pleasing handles I have seen.
I just find the design of the Polo handle to be very uncomfortable, for me.
Good luck.

This is one of the exceedingly rare times I have to disagree with my good friend Celestino. I own a Polo 10 and it is very likely the most comfortable handle I have ever used. I do wear XL in glove sizes. I also like to bowl lather, though I find it great to use on the face and my head.

I used to own a Polo 8 and while the handle was also nice, it is not near as comfortable as the Polo 10 for me.

The old YMMV always applies.

Signing on for the pictures.  I bought a Polo 10 from a member here, it was just too very large to be usuable, so I sold it.  Notice it is for sale again on the BST .. just sayin'?

That said, I am awaiting the pictures of the Polo 8 next to the 10 size

Wonderful brushes. Look long enough and you can find pretty much any combination of brushes compared next to each other! And asking always works too. Smile
