|Using a DA cassette with Ultegra||WrigleyRoadie|

|Plan on picking up a new wheelset in the near future, but found a deal on a new Dura-Ace cassette with the same gearing I currently use. Considering I'm running an Ultegra group with only about 1,600 miles on it, are there any issues should I expect with the upgrade? Will I need a new chain?|

|I have heard of some durability issues with DA cassettes. So much so that I have heard/read of several people, including some Cat 1 & 2 racers, using Ultegra cassettes with DA groupo's. The weight difference is neglible and the Ultegra will supposedly last about twice as long as DA.
Just something to think about.
