As good a guess as any. Someone got a Salix to hand to check?
The 3 I have are all RRR

could it be cork, rubber, cork as in the inserts in the handle rather than all rubber, etc?

This thread is awesome, I think you have cracked the code.

If it is right would there actually be any difference in RRR inserts in the handle or Cork Rubber Cork?

It seems such a small difference to be hardly noticeable.  :)

Don't know if it's only about different inserts, but gn predator has thicker handle than kronus, which has 3 cork inserts.

Do you get royalties for shoehorning low grade GN photos into any thread that gains traction?

I'll take it.  I took a punt on a Salix from Ebay  and fortunately it came off.  After twenty years and three Salix bats I bought a Bradbury but  after four seasons that has decided to give up the ghost and developed a nasty crack in the bottom.  In 1996 my first Salix bat, The Royal was my first bat which cost more than 100, it was 125. This Salix is an AJK player's bat under another name.  'Exclusive to Uzi Sports  Exclusive Shape developed with the help of Master Salix bat maker Andrew Kember.'  RRP was 550 the Ebay guy bought it for 450.  He said the middle was too high for him, but I like the middle to be about 18-20 cms up the bat.  Bidding started at 250 but an offer could be made. I offered 275. It is oiled and knocked in well and it doesn't need a scuff.   It weights 2lb 8.
