Which v-brakes with Campy ergolevers?

As the title says: which v-brakes will work with Campy ergolevers? (Potenza in this case, but I'm sure all their levers pull the same amount of cable).

v-brakes appear to come in different arm lengths - what do I need to be aware of here when matching it to the levers? Is there anything else I need to know?

I tried tektro s with 84 mm arms.
It works but the pads are very close to the rim and the brake lever nearly bottoms out.
Not great on grimy roads or wheels that are not perfectly true.

Ik might give the tektro bmx v brakes with 80 mm arms a go.

What Beaver said. More here, including pictures of my bike - they work absolutely fine.
