I used a 12-36 with the long cage 3500 RD with the B screw all the way in, it was right at the limit though. I swapped to an XT (Edit) M772 SGS, which with hours of adjusting, a new cable and a new hanger works well but is only slightly better. From all the feedback I received here the Deore M591 would have been the better choice.
