I used one going from a Campy road lever to full-sized V brake and it worked extremely well. Don't have any actual measurements but I can take some. I'm now running Mini-Vs and don't need the cable pull change, but you can set it for 1:1 pull and it acts as a roller noodle with an adjuster. This gives a noticeably better feel than a regular noodle. I was surprised, it feels almost like a rod linkage or something, very direct.
