- I've put it through the wringer
These are the best hoods I've ever laid hands on, both in terms of aesthetics and tactile functionality. It took me some time to convert from the older style, lower hoods, but the increased height makes for a much more confident hold—especially when the hoods are wet and you're on lumpy surfaces. The shifting is typical Campy: the levers provide very positive feedback and require more force to shift than Shimano's featherlight touch. I value that positive feedback; a lot of other cyclists don't. The ability to trim front and rear is valuable considering you can run through half the cassette in a single lever throw. One issue I've noticed is that the right thumb lever occasionally jams. I read that it may happen when both the up- and down-shift levers are pressed together, but throwing the other lever frees the thumb lever, and it only happens once/month or so, and that's a small sacrifice I'm willing to make to ride Campy.

Campy 4 Life!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've been a Campy guy for 25 years; oh, sure, I've dabbled with the alternative lifestyles that are Shimano and SRAM, but my heart will always be in Italy. Just made the upgrade from 10-speed to 11-speed on my Richard Sachs, and decided to go with the workhorse Chorus group, instead of the spendier Record or Super Record groups. So far, I'm impressed. Even though the new levers are shaped differently than the old 10-speed Record stuff, they are still super comfortable, still shift just as well (if not better), and are still as sexy to look at as Campy has always been. Really looking forward to more saddle time outside as we pass out of sprinter and into summer.
