That version you speak of was the first attempt at changing the old solid-cage Record. I think it was only around about a year at most. Educated guess here, but I think...'79? An exploded view picture can be seen in the '82 Olympic catalog. Interestingly, the photos of the complete derailleur show the 3 hole Record and Super Record. So I guess they got lazy and used an old photo for the exploded picture. Does anyone know if the 4 hole model is shown or made reference to in any of Campy's catalog Supplements? I kind of like the 4 hole cage. The narrow clamp is sort of scary. I think it might have been nice if Campy distinguished the Super Record from the Record by incorporating the black arms AND the 4 hole cage. Oh well, they probably had a good reason for not doing so. Can't blame that decision on Valantino :-)
