@silvalis, I only had a little time with them back to back. Before they were on my Classic with different wheels so it wasn't comparable. I can't definitively say how they were different other than I immediately noticed a difference. Maybe Cal can pay better attention than I did. If I were to try to pin point it, I'd say that the new design has slightly more grab to it while the older design has more modulation at slow speed.

Ok... I can report back here now and state that the Dual Pivot Chorus Calipers (both front and rear) do indeed provide slightly more clearance than either the Record or Super Record Calipers. What was a barely see daylight kind of "flint catching" situation with Record or Super Record calipers is now perfectly fine clearance at 2mm with Veloflex Vlanderen 27mm tubulars on new Campagnolo Boras with the Chorus calipers.

Are there any other major differences between chorus and record/sr right now? Because the price jump is huge.

In the brake calipers? There's differences, like ti bolts, a different type of barrel adjuster, a bit different method of micro adjustments and caliper centering. But functionally Chorus is very very good. If you're on a budget you shouldn't feel like you're missing the amount of price differential in performance.

Yeah just the calipers. In the process of planning out a new build, not exactly on a budget, but just a bit begrudging when even the campy blurb barely differentiates between the models, yet a set of record dual pivots cost more than twice chorus.
