Here's what I found

Available in a range of colours to customise your Shimano Ultegra 6600 STI shifter hoods with the colour you want. Tight fitting, improved ergonomics and comfortable.
Using the blueprint for the Dura Ace 7800 hoods, Hudz created a good blueprint for the Ultegra 6600 series (compatible levers: Ultegra,
, 105 & R-700 for 10 speed). All the compatible levers feature a wider profile and a longer lever body making it necessary to reduce the amount of height added while keeping overall volume similar.

Why bother changing?
I was forced to... shredded originals due to an off, my local shop suggested using Hudz as 6700 spare part supply is dire in the UK (still).
They did the fit.. I dont know how.. broken hand meant I wasnt up to it for sure.
All I know is that with Shimano , you need to strip the bars back completely to put the covers on.
oh... I find them actually very comfortable to ride with.
