I bought a Rotor chain catcher last year, never missed a shift anymore.
Sorry for additional off topic question:
is there a difference between Chorus and Record chain in performance and durability?
I always run Chorus chains and sprockets on my Record group. Last time I bought Record chain.
1) it seemed to me more loud
2) the Record chain is almost dead after 2500kms, the Chorus used to last 3500km
Anyone having similar experiences?
I put the chain in the small-big and adjust the limit screw so that the chain is barely clearing the inner plate.
How many drivers does a buggy have?
So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
If you are running a Campagnolo derailleur, I recommend the Campagnolo chainkeeper. It is light and looks really good.
Second, the drop you are experiencing (assuming all adjustments are correct as you describe) may be due to a new chain meshing with worn chainrings. Keep in mind that your old stretched chain created its own peaks, valley, snags burrs, etc on your chainring teeth, over time. Your new chain must now mesh with the existing wear on your chainrings. The drop or mis-shifts you are experiencing may be due to your chain simply getting caught on some of these imperfections, which results in your chain slapping over rather then gently shifting over, during the process of a shift from large to small chainring. As your chain rotates around your chainring and you activate your shifter, even small snags in your chainrings can cause the chain to jump rather the glide, resulting in the jump during a shift that could cause your chain to drop.
There are two solutions to this issue: First, go easy on hard shifts during your first 100 miles after installing a new chain and let the chain mesh to your chainrings Second, inspect your chainrings and sand or grind down any burrs or snags. I don't know how worn your chainrings are but these recs are assuming that your 11 speed gruppo is fairly new and the chainrings are far from being worn and needing replacement.

How do I recongnize my chainrings are worn out?
I do recognize it easily on the cogs...a new chain is skipping, but what about chainrings?
What are Your experiences with 11sp sprockets and chainrings?
My 11sp sprockets have now approx. 15 000km and it is worn out already (my 10sp cassettes were more solid)
How many kms are the chainrings supposed to work (assuming changing chains properly (132,6mm) )
PS. pic 1, 3 & 4 display a chainring from the backside/back view, while pic 2 is the front view

Hm, I read the advices the "expert" provided...well, I say it is useless.
Or maybe it works on a weekend ride with Your wife, but durring a race?!
I suppose Super Record is not designed for weekend rides, it is a racing stuff!
I have been changing gears on both front and rear at the same time for 20years without issue (Campagnolo groups). It just has to work like that. If it does not, nobody will use it.
Just my 2 cents.
