I'm pretty sure that current dura-ace hubs are compatible with ultegra 9 cassettes, but what about the older 8 spd ultegra cassettes?

Thanks,
Ed

You can put new 9-v DA or Ultegra cassettes on the old 8-v Ultegra hubs, so I don't see how you couldn't go the other way. Never tried it though.

As long as the last cog doesn't screw on, yes it will work. If your cassette has a lock ring to hold it in place, it will work fine. The pre-hyperglide cassettes used a threaded small cog instead of a lockring
