Subject: [CR]Campy standard/long reach (57mm) calipers?

I have a pair of Campy N. Record calipers from the early 70s, and am not all that thrilled with the braking on them, particularly the hand effort required, even with new pads.

Does anyone have any suggestions on others to try? Were later campy models better in this regard?

I'd really rather not go to the modern shimano or tektro calipers, and campy doesn't even make 47-57mm reach these days as far as I can tell, but I had a pretty close call on a ride a few days ago and was thinking ugly brakes might not be the worst thing compared to being plastered on the back of a van.
