Campy 12-29 Cassette & Earlier SR Rear Derailleur Compatibility

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Campy 12-29 Cassette & Earlier SR Rear Derailleur Compatibility

My question is: will a Campagnolo 12-29 cassette work with an earlier (late 2010) super record rear derailleur? I'm getting conflicting answers, and a lot of "it should".
I'm hoping for an "it will" or "it won't" answer if possible. One fairly reliable source stated that the 29 cog will only work correctly with the 2015 Campy rear derailleur.

Anyone out there have experience with this scenario?

I can't give you a definitive answer, but Campy have had the 12-29 cassette in Chorus, and I think Record, since before the 2015 line was released. Even Campy wouldn't release a cassette that was only compatible with a derailleur you can't even buy yet.


Actually, this might be a definitive answer;

Campy introduced the 12-29 cassette for the 2010 line, to work with the 11 speed components they brought in for 2009. You should be good to go.
