Help finding replacement brake hood

I had a nasty crash on my bike this weekend that ruined my brake hood (other other things).

The bike is a 2007 Fuji Roubaix with Tiagra shifters with the optical display. No flight deck bottons. The hoods have a hook on top that attaches to the lever right below the optical display. I think the model number is 4500, but I could be wrong.

I can't seem to find a replacement hood for this shifter. I have found replacement hoods for older tiagra shifters without the optical display--these would cover the display on my bike. I have found replacement hoods for Tiagra shifters with flight deck buttons.

I want a hood with no flight deck buttons that will accomodate the optical display. I have found these online for older ultegra and dura ace shifters with optical displays, but I do not know if they will fit on the tiagra sti shifters.

Any suggestions?

Tiagra, is a price point group OEM spec them
to fit on the bikes in most peoples price range..
May be more direct to just get a 105 Brifter, whole.
If you can find one with the right # of gears,, 9 is available 8 is tougher to find
but on its way out as the game is to make more complicated stuff ..
for no reason other than something new for the upcoming seasons trade shows..

You need Shimano part# Y-6LP 98070. If QBP stocks this item then almost any bike shop can order it for you.

Will an ultegra or dura ace non-flight deck hood work on this?
