Ultegra -- Dura Ace STI question(1 post)

Ultegra -- Dura Ace STI questionsgray8110

I'm primarily interested in how the front shifter shifts. On the Ultegra setup that I currently have the shifter has some trim positions, but really only two positions. It shifts perfectly well and range of motion isn't an issue, but there are some gear combos where chain rub can't be avoided. I heard once that the upshift on the Dura Ace lever is more like a friction shifter than an indexed design like the Ultegra setup. Is this true??
