From what I hear it's not that stiff, besides, with DA 2004 the rear deraileur is the same weight as the TISO and wayyyyyyyyyy stiffer.

I have used the Tiso Der. and have to say it is much stiffer than either the Dura-ace or Record Der. Maby a little to stiff. The Der performs well but the light cass. made by Tiso do not. I have used the campy compatible cass. and it does not contain the same rampings as a campy cass. and does not shift well.

The one thing i do like about the Der. is that it is all black and you can order the pullies in either black, silver, gold and red. So it looks much better with my all black set up. Most people arn't that anal about the looks of there bike, so for the money the new Record der. with the carbon parts is a better bet.

Sure you can use the Tiso Der. with any campy compatible cass., but I choose the Tiso Cass b/c it is very light. I am thinking of sending it back since it does not shift as well though. I tried a chorus cassette with the Tiso Der. and it shifted fine.

You can even replace the bolts and gain some extra weight on the Record :lol:
