    @hippy, not sure if you ordered a screen protector already but I'm happily using these for my X100V, X-H1 and Iphone.

    I've got the BROTECT Airglass in both matte and regular finish.

    Tbh I don’t know whether or not there was a tool available when they launched it. It happens more often than you think that a deal is made with a tool manufacturer ie as it’s their core business and therefore will be a lot more affordable.

    That aside, PT is definitely not the best / friendliest system out there imo.

    From the three examples, I'm 100% with you that the power torque system wasn't the best moment from Campag. Hence they've stepped from it completly by now. Then again, the tool you're referring to isn't a Campag tool (as they actually never had one) The Cyclus Tools worked very good for me for instance.

    Until the introduction of the 13s chain, Campagnolo never had a quick link, only the traditional pinning and peening. So if you're trying to make an i.e. KMC quick link work with something that's not designed to work based on that closure system, it might lead to a less than perfect result together with some frustration whilst trying.

    If the Campag ergopowers require a torx key instead of allen key, you simply need to purchase a torx in the right size. There's a reason it's a torx instead of allen and it's not to make the life of the home mechanic more difficult than need be. ;)

    Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to point a finger but simply trying to put things into perspective. I work in the cycling industry myself and from experience I know it's very, very difficult to provide the correct information / availability to all the different channels.

    People will always try combinations / solutions that are not desigend for each other with possible frustration and disappoint as a result.

    I'm not saying the Campag way is always the right way to do something but I do believe (no matter the brand) it's important to make sure you're using the right tools and spare parts for the job.

    What makes you say that?

    As long as you have the ratchet in the correct starting position, it’s really not that difficult.

    Having a frayed cable only means you didn’t realize the cable wasn’t aligned properly and you applied force when you shouldn’t have. Not sure if you have but I would strongly recommend to use the original cables, the shape of the head is important as it requires an exact match with the receiving end inside the ergopower, both for shifting and braking. I’ve seen many “Campagnolo compatible” third party inners getting stuck inside an ergopower over time. Proving sometimes impossible to remove.
