What other hoods fit Campy Record 8...koala

I rode the back up bike today in the wet and it has 8 speed. Cant beleive how much more comfortable the 10 speed hoods are. Will anything else fit?
it's not the just the hoods...C-40

Older 8-speed ergo lever bodies have fairly sharp corners on the outer edge. Even if the newer hoods would fit (they won't) it would not improve the comfort level.

You could have a newer style ergolever set converted to 8 speed. Depending on how much you want to spend on your back up bike, any of Campys ergolevers (except Zenon) can be converted.
