from Branfordbike.com

FW-98-41 Shimano splined 8/9 speed freehub body to fit all above hubs except Veloce. Convert any Campagnolo 1999 to current Record, Chorus, Daytona or Centaur rear hub for use with a Shimano 8 or 9 speed cassette. Made by Campagnolo. Also fits 1999 to 2001 Nucleon and Electron, 2001/02 Proton, and all current Campagnolo factory wheels.$69.88

So, you Shimano guys can now use Campy hubs and Wheelsets! How about that!

Slowly, surely, we will convert you!

Are you saying that shimano 8/9 cassettes will fit campy 10 cassette hubs?

Yes, change the freehub body to Shimano splines,Spunout

So it ends up with a Shimano wheel. Useable with a Shimano drivetrain.

There is no purpose to do this with a campagnolo drivetrain, you already have access to the best cassette choice out there (10 speed).

Wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy a 9 speed cassette and use it with your Shimano wheels ?
If you wanted an exact match, you could buy a loose cog 9 speed Campy cassette and some Wheels Mfg spacers.
now, if you could only change Shimano hubs to Campy... nmweiwentg

You can, sort of. They're called Wheels Manufacturing cassettes. They convert a Dura Ace cassette to Campy UD gears and spacing. About $156 at Excel. They work great.

The nice thing about this, is that your not stuck with all Shimano for all your bikes. I was thinking of going record on my last bike, but owned to much Shimano as far as wheels and cassetts to make the switch. This would make them interchangable so you can have a little of both. Think I will try some record on the next rig.
