Campy Record Calipers - Which Pads to get ?

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Campy Record Calipers - Which Pads to get ?

My calipers are Campy Record Ti, (2006 I think) I use Kyserium aluminum rims and other regular aluminum rims. Kool Stops sound pretty popular. Is there a specific model I should get ??
PBK has Campy pads (4 pads only, no holders) for $18, minus 10% today only, which sounds decent too.

Record and Dura-Ace pads are usually fine so it may not be worth the upgrade. I have 06' Record brakes and the pads perform as well as my Kool Stop Salmons on Ultegra calipers.

I actually preferred the salmons to my record pads...the records marked up my rims a bit...

Can't go wrong with cool stops or Campagnolo pads. If you can get a good deal on one I'd go with that.

Get the Kool Stops. My Chorus brakes with factory pads aren't particularly impressive, rather, merely fine.
