    Soft shifting? You should check your shifter cable. My cable was fraying inside the shifter body, near the end of the cable. It was only a couple of years old. Finally, on a ride, it wouldn't shift to the largest cogs, and a mile later, broke off. (It's hard to get that short broken end out of the shifter, too!)

    I think that you have to get a whole new shifter mechanism, no separate parts are available. But the shifter is supposed to last longer, and not need G spring replacements like the old version.

    The soft shifts from a 2009 10 speed ultrashift lever are normal. Campy changed that for 2010, then quit making 10 speed ultrashift levers altogether, for 2011. Campy sells a "major assembly" to repair broken shifters. You would need major assembly number EC-CE100, but you may find it tough to find.

    A google search brought up this:

    The 2009 started out soft as DaveSSS mentioned. What do you mean by "beginning to get soft " ?

    Thanks for the replies it was always soft but recently feels like a friction shifter the motion is set but I can't really feel any click. I ordered the g springs and carrier (from Branford)only to take apart the shifter and realize not what I was expecting my old shifter got done every three years so when I ordered these I figure par for the course the ec-ce110 is no where to be found. Last nigh. I realized the order mistake and searched all night for a fix so I vented on the forum from work I feel a little betrayed after so many years talking bad about the other guy and there throw away parts

    You might try disassembling and reassembling - people have found that one of the index detent balls was mis-placed. If that doesn't work you're probably suffering from the original 2009 lever's "soft" cam which was replaced as a running change and briefly available as a replacement part. With those no longer available you'll need a 2010 or newer assembly.

    NOS 2010 Veloce Ultrashift levers are still available for $125 including hoods ($30) and cable set ($50) for a net cost of $45 on top of what you'll eventually be spending on wear items. Swap your brake blades; the rest of the shifter is identical to what you have except for the deeper detents in the index cam

    (I just got a set for spares to go with my 2010 Centaur Carbon levers).

    When those run out you'll need to buy a replacement right assembly for approximately $90.

    No idea whether this still applies, but I've fixed soft shifting in a couple of pairs of gen1 Ergos by tweaking the index springs.
