Switching to a lower drag cable housing certainly worked for me. Indeed Shimano wants to use the very latest version of their cable housings because they're supposed to have much less drag.
I used the Yokozunas but the brake housings are a ***** to work with for two reasons. They're mega stiff and they're a bit oversized. Trying to get the cable housing seated in an ultegra 6700 caliper required heroic efforts. I doubt I'll use the Yokozunas again.
I've heard good things about the jaqwire sets.
