Campy non ultradrive 9spd chain w/ ultradrive 9spd cassetkilimanjaro

Does anyone know if non-ultradrive 9spd chains (before spring 2000) will work well with ultradrive 9spd cassettes? I know that the reverse is true (i.e. ultradrive chains work with exadrive cassetes)

Thansk and Regards,

the difference between campy9 and shimano9 can't be measured with calipers. -- you shouldn't have any problems. i know lots of guys that ran 9sp dura-ace cranks/bb with campy9 setups. whatever.

I recently bought a Rohloff 9 speed chain to go with my new ultradrive cassette based on a recommendation from the Campyonly website.

After just 500 or so miles I switched back to the Campy chain I had taken off the bike because the Rohloff chain sounded awful...a continual metal on metal sound that would not go away despite my best efforts of adding more lube, adjusting the rear derailieur, etc.

The Campy chain I put back on was the one I used last year on my old cassette and works perfectly with the new ultradrive cassette too.
