Dual ended Shimano/Campy brake cables?

Hi Guys:
I have a number of projects going on right now and I was looking to buy a bunch of cables. Jagwire makes the dual ended Shimano/Campy gear cables but I don't see anything similar for brakes. Are they compatible already? If not, anyone know a source? I'd like to buy ~10.
Cheers,
Jim

No. Those have road and mtn ends. I want Shimano and Campy road ends. Unless they are compatible. Also, I only want the cable not the housing.
Thanks,
Jim

Campy brake cable ends (and shifters, for that matter) work well enough in Shimano sockets for it to not really matter...brakes, better than shifters, but nonetheless. If you're chasing ghost shifting issues, it might not be a good idea for the shifter, since the cable head can move a bit, but there is little-to-no danger of cable damage (or, at least, no more than usual).

Short answer: yes, Campy will fit in Shimano, but it won't be a perfect fit.

Short response: Don't try it the other way. Shimano derailer cable will fit into Campy shifter, but may not come back out...
