    The New colour AT700 wasn't even out back then. Since he changed racquets doesn't mean he changed his grip too.

    New pic from AE2009. Looks like towel to me.

    It might be both .

    One company made both a half towel and half rubber grip. Kind of like the Karakal double grip :D

    :D never tried it - actually I think the company might be karakal - I'll give it a look because all the badminton catalogues are in my bag.

    I'll post back when I come back from playing today :D.
