Will this hat be okay for use with a medium to large hat load such as grapefruit or melon?

Yes.

And Jeff, let me know the next time you're downtown.
I have an old "loading" pamphlet that you might be able to make use of.
I'll PM you my email address.

I haven't handled a Nils Pol, but generally you need a "soft" hat so you can grip the load from the outside of the hat. For example, my rigid Bowler isn't suited as I'd have to "break" the shape to squeeze the hat enough to hold a load.

Nils Poll hats are the best on the Market in my opinion, they are hand made perfect weight!
They have perfectly round brim so you can put on you head the wrong way round and wont be noticed, unless your head is all ready wrong way round then it wont matter, I guess.

Now as far as looks I like the short bowler, it looks more like the real thing they do seem hard to sauce, so I suggest you seek out Nils Poll him self!
The high bowler makes you look like you have an egg for a head.
As for colour your spoilt for choice.

You can crush them, work them, beat them, sleep in them, sweat in them saying that try to keep rain of them they are made of wool.

I've found a way to do this load with a hard Bowler. Rather than holding the load through the hat from the top, you hold the hat by the brim with your thumb on top brim and with your middle and ring finger, force the load against the inside of the hat. It's almost as if you're holding the load in your fingers and are clipping the hat on top with your thumb. You don't actually support the entire load with your fingers though, the hat acts a bit like a cantilever. You need a reasonably strong hand but it's not a silly amount of force you need to exert.
