Campy Centaur RD - Largest cog?

Hi guys-

I was looking into a modern Campagnolo Centaur 10s group recently, and I noticed that the cassettes have an option for a large cog of up to 29 teeth. However the RD doesn't have a medium cage option that I could find. Does this mean the standard Centaur RD will be able to handle that 29t cog?

Thanks for your help!

Centaur is also a price point name like 105 vs ultegra in Shimanoese.
there is a longer cage RD in the Campag line , look at their 'race triple' list.

Right, the Veloce model has a medium cage option. I was just wondering what the largest cog the Centaur model could handle is.

Campy's 2012 catalog shows a medium cage in the Centaur line. I think they rate the short cage for 26T max.
