Swapping out the RD will not make is smoother - as you are describing it. Of course your sensitivity to a feeling of smoothness is different than anyone elses.

Switching to a Shimano cassette and chain will smooth out the shift - as others have done. So YMMV.

I'm using a full SRAM group - minus crank - and find that its pretty smooth for me IME..

Any. Ultegra only goes up to a 12-27, SRAM does a 11-28, so any Ultegra will be fine. I use both SRAM and Shimano (and IRC) cassettes and haven't noticed any difference, but also haven't really been paying attention. Might have to give that a closer look.

Ultegra 6700 is now avail in a 11-28. You can use any size cassette up to a 28 max size cog with the Sram RD.
