Any good quality plastic lined casing will work. The campy ferrules are not quite the same diameter as other brands of casing, so you may need shimano or universal ferrules for the ends of the shift cables.

Campy shift cables are highly recommended. If you buy some other brand of derailleur cable, be sure that the stop at the end fits properly into the ergo lever. Other brands may be slightly larger and require filing to fit.
