I have used 3T Ergonova and Ergosum with Campag......all fine.

On my old De Rosa Idol, I used Campag Chorus with Deda Presa......worked extremely well.

The only bars I had problems with were the FSA k WING compact which I run on my EPS for a short period of time. Just didn't work regarding the hood sitting sweetly on the bar curve.

That's where I have a little bump, just enough to look funny, not enough to bother me at all

I stack a little it of spare bar tape between the cable exit and the ergo body to get rid or the bump..
Works a treat..

True story. I just finished my build and they're great with my Chorus 11 shifters.

How do the Deda's 44 out-out measure c-c, 42? I'm on FSA 42 c-c which works great, but Ritchey 42 c-c is actually like a 43.

I've got a seperated shoulder on one side and old broken collarbone on the other side so am very 'goldilox' when it comes to bar widths.

deda measure their bars from outside-to outside, I'use Deda presa with record shifters and it suit very well.

I can reach the paddles while sprinting no drama and they have a nice flat transition from the tops to the hoods

Agreed. Running Record on a 3T Ergonova and I think it's an absolutely perfect fit. For me anyway. No issues in any position and the transition is nice.

The only Shimano part that will ever grace my ride...

The Pro Vibe Round Bend 44cm carbon bar. Works so lovely with Campy levers.
