Anybody know what tool these BB's take?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Tifosi-Carbon-Cam ... 53df102c97

It is very close to old Shimano fit BB tool, but just a fraction smaller.

Campagnolo cassette and BB tool is nowhere near.

Please help!

Both my genuine Shimano tools won't work!

What can they be?

Discovered what the problem is...

Shimano made 2 types of BB tool. Why on earth?

The UN72 is deeper than the UN52. Same size, but one is deeper!

Thanks.
