    Those ferrules on cable housing?

    the brake cable ferrule is metal, and the shifter cable ferrule is plastic.
    do these go on the ends that fit into the brake/shift lever body? where the cable originates from?
    or is that end of the cable housing left bare?

    also, the end of the brake cable housing that fits into the caliper brake doesn't fit with the metal ferrule, only bare cable fits. is this correct?

    thanks

    edit: for record 10-speed if it matters

    Do not use ferrules for the shifter/brake body or the caliper for Campy

    Actually that last answer is only 1/2 right.

    Campy 10-spd Record does use ferrules at the shifter body and at every other derailleur cable end. (this was changed for 11-speed).

    Brake housing does not require ferrules anywhere.

    You should be using Campy cabling which comes with metal ferrules. Or at least Campy-compatible. Not just any old cable. The ends are different.
    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    I thought OP was inquiring only about brake housing. Plastic shifting ferrules suggest non-oem Campy cableset, which may not fit into the s​hifter body.

    He was asking about both, and my answer covered both. Possibly he has a Campy compatible set that has plastic ferrules, which would be OK, or a non-compatible set which would not be OK. Who knows?
