That is a good tip. I am on my 3rd 11-28 and might look at the SRAM next time.
someone mentioned noisier. how much noisier would the SRAM be? I do like the idea of 22-25-28 spacing

Noise isn't that much of a concern for me.
Goes fine with ultegra 6600 and 6700 chains. I reckon it picks up the chain a bit better than a shimano cluster when shifting to an easier gear. No difference noise wise with the pg1050 ones I've been using.

Rear derailleur and other drivetrain parts are Shimano Ultegra Di2 if it makes any difference. I have one set of wheels with the 12-25 and I am about to get another with an 11-28 (for climbing) and want to be able to swap the wheels over quickly and easily when required.
Set a new chain up with the 28 and it'll definitely be okay.
Will it work with the chain you've got without any issues? Depends how short the chain has been cut, without seeing it one could only guess.
