I looked on velobase, and in one of the descriptions they talk about them having two conical washers that should be installed "flying saucer" style (2nd gen). - Component: Campagnolo C-Record Retro-Friction (2nd Gen.)
Reason I am asking, is that I think I have a set I was planning on putting on my Pinarello (so I can get rid of the SL-01RE CG that are on there now), and am wondering if they are truly retrofriction or not. They have what look to be little ball bearing cages inside, as well as the two conical washers. I can post "exploded views" of them, but for now, here's what they look like:

I believe they're called "Doppler" shifters.
I also have a set that's going on to my Pinarello Montello.
The 1st gen Synchro indexed shifters on the bike just don't work as well as I want them to, so I decided to finally break out the NOS Dopplers that I have in my stash to mount on the bike instead, this winter.
Curious to find out if they work as well as all my Simplex Retros, but I'm sure I'll like them much better than the Synchros.
