Has anybody tried the mavic M10 cassette on a Mavic M10wheelset in combination with Campagnolo 10 speed?
How does it shift? Is there a difference in lifespan compared to Campa cassettes? Or is it best to sell my Mavic Ksyrium M10 wheelset and buy the Ksyrium ED10?

addition: reason for this question is that I am switching from Shimano to Campagnolo

Flawlessly.

Although every time we have this topic, opinions seem to range from the above, to "like cr@p".

Personally I'd go with the Campy cassette. There's no need to sell your wheel set. You can simply replace your Shimano compatible M10 freehub with a Campagnolo compatible ED10 freehub body.
I agree with divvePMC

Most any shop can order you the ED10 freehub body for around 50 dollars direct from Mavic USA. You can then use the Campy cassette of your choice. Swapping the freehub body takes 1 10mm and 1 5mm Allen wrench and around 10 minutes of your time.
yes, change the freehub bodyDougSloan

It's easy to do; don't waste your money on these adapter cassettes. I have two of the Mavics, and while they would do in a pinch if there are no alternatives, they are darn near prehistoric in design, workmanship, and weight.

for me, Wheels Mfg. shifted better than M10. Campy, however,bill

shifted better than Wheels.
Get the replacement hub, IMHO, and go all Campy. The stuff works.
