Babolat old and new grip mold.

When I was around 10 years old I got my first ever adult size racquet which was the Babolat APDO in 4 1/4. So a decade later, I tried the PAO in the same size and noticed that the grip/handle wasn’t the same as the OG. Till this very day I till love the handle mold of the APDO. The question I wanted to ask, was it because the beam/mold between the APDO and PAO were different, is that why the mold of the grip/handle isn’t the same? Is this the same as anything that came pre-‘15 Babolat models and the ones after? The APDO grip mold was smooth (the ridges of the bevels weren’t as sharp) where the PAO was.
