A 29" needle will allow you to loop it and knit a smaller diameter but I'm not sure it's long enough for magic loop. I think using one loop is called traveling loop. Anyhow, the 29" needle should work. I don't understand about your joining coming undone. As Jan pointed out, the cast on you use could be a problem.
