I have some old Shimano 600 tricolour brifters that I picked up really cheaply as they were sticking. I have freed them up (was pretty easy) but one of them has a buggered hood. It seems that hoods for these are very rare, so my question is: has anyone had any success with Hudz? Their website is scarce on details but maybe someone has found that a particular model can be modified to fit the older style brifters?

The shapes don't need to be very different for the hood to fit extremely poorly because they are heavily molded. If you can borrow a hood from a friend's 10-speed shifter then you could see if they are at all close before dropping money on the Hudz. Also, have you checked your LBS's to see if any of them have some old ones 600 hoods hiding in the back of a box somewhere? I would try as hard as possible to get the right hoods before going with something that doesn't fit well.
