Any idea of the specific type of Columbus tubing?

I recently purchased a Faggin Campione del Mondo road bike from the early 80s' and found this Columbus sticker on the downtube.


Do you guys have any idea what kind of Columbus tubing it is? My best guess is Columbus SL, but I am not completely positive.

That decal was generic and used for SL, SP, and possibly others before Columbus began using decals with the specific tubeset on them.
