I've a craving for a new campag carbon seatpost, but one concern is holding me back.

In 2008, I sold my Record seatpost (2007 model, I think) with the carbon seat cradle, because the increased number of smaller 'teeth' were causing my saddle to move whenever I went over even a small pot-hole.
Is this still a problem, has it been resolved?
Is it restricted to just the Record posts with carbon cradles?

I did try the search function, but without joy.

Any pointers gratefully received.

Many thanks,

David

info...

Seat post slippage can usually be cured by using Tacx carbon assembly paste.

Although I'm a Campy only guy, I do not care for Campy seat posts or any brand that relies on serrations and a single bolt for angle adjustment.

I always buy a model with a 2-bolt rocker-style clamp, like the FSA K-force or Selcof/ITM models. Thomson has a nice clamp, but the setback model only has 16(?)mm of setback and it's ugly. I need 25-32mm of setback, like I can get with FSA.
