Hello, do you think that cheap chinese (probably) hoods will fit the 600ax levers?

I used some cheap generic hoods on my 600ex Arabesque levers and they fitted perfectly....

I'm certain that they would also fit your levers. As long as you get ones the same shape, such as these....

I'm sure you'll be ok!

From personal experience, the original hoods are very difficult to get and very costly when they do appear.

If you bide your time, the hoods appear but it might be a long time before they do.

If you get hoods to fit would you mind posting a pic.

Thanks,

Richard

Thank you all, but the seller just send me a bad news: the hoods are not compatible with hidden brake cable...the are holes on top!
