I am in the process of switching from Record 10 speed (circa 2006) to a combination of Super Record and Record (cranks, but I'm keeping my 2006 brakes because they work just fine). With around 17,000 miles on the Record 10 speed, I've had very few problems (until recently). I've re-built both shift levers and changed the cables, housings, chain and cassette (I consider these routine maintenance) but parts for R-10 are becoming somewhat scarce. That's one reason I decided to make the change. The other reason, one which I've not yet solved, is that both shift levers intermittently "lock up" (i.e., they simply won't move unless I up- or down-shift depending on which position is frozen). I suspect this is a cable issue, but I can't locate the problem. In any event, I like the quality, durability and performance of Campagnolo equipment. I'm keeping the Record 10 for eventual use on another bike. For comparison, my wife's bike has SRAM Force. I've ridden that occasionally and it fails my criteria in all three areas.
No offense intended but the lockup is a periodically discussed topic. The consensus is that yes check the hood first so it doesn't interfere with the thumb lever return. But after that it generally comes down to lazy fingers putting pressure on both the thumb and the lower shift levers at the same time. Don't think you do it - neither did I. Until I caught myself when deep into a long tiring ride. Once I noticed this "user error" I've NEVER had the problem again.
