Any info will be helpful.
Your least expensive option to get the new hood shape while preserving the classic behavior (5 cogs smaller and able to trim the left lever in both directions) is to buy a NOS pair of 2010 Centaur 10 speed Ultrashift levers. Veloce would work as well although everyone seems to have sold them out.
2011 10 speed levers with the new shape are all Powershift which works like Escape.
2009 levers had a mid-year change to stiffer clicks and ball bearings and you don't want them because Campagnolo no longer sells Ultrashift small parts and a fix would take a new $90-$100 right lever assembly.
