I found the Regina futura to be a bit of a hybrid.....I think that the cogs were essentially ORO level, but of course all in one unit...the body, on the other hand was superior in smoothness to the ORo...much more like the later CX model, which makes sense for the time period at which it was produced. The real reason to use a Futura is that it was recommended by Gimondi!...and says so right on the display case that mine came in.
