Any special advice for replacing Ergopower 8sp hoods? Concerned about the slit where the thumb shifter travels and the hoods look thin enough to possibly tear easily.

ergo 9s and 10s rip quite easily if you mount them dry or with some sort of tool,nevertheless pointy or not.They do are quite elastic though but dont overstretch them.If they rip in some point theyre done,but you could repair them with superglue.
After ripping the right for second time,i stop caring about (theyre not cheap 25 dollars) and put a left one in place with some modification.
