The oversized clips were made by Shimano. Don't think Campy ever made any. I tracked some down for my Teledyne with help from list members. I seem to recall I also bought some DiaCompe or SunTour that fit, but these were a little odd, looked like they were made to route the cable somewhat to the side rather than along the top of the top tube. Perhaps these were made for an aluminum mountain bike or something.
