replacement brake pads for Universal brakes

my 1972 italian 10 speed came with all Campagnolo parts---except for the brakes which were Universal Model 61 sidepulls. i am about to get it back on the road but the brakes will need some atttention first
i was able to find new brake hoods recently ( Universal NOS), but the pads are well oxidized to the extent that there is virtually no coefficient of friction at all to speak of .
i need new pads.
has anyone tried these new Koolstop units?
should i be looking at the Dura ace type or the Campy type? or has anyone out there any better ideas?
it's a shame someone doesn't just produce some replacement rubber---i'm sure there must be thousands of Universal 61 and 68 equipped bikes out there.
