Okay, so I know the difference between 105 and Ultegra but have a question anyway. I am needing a replacement shifter (to replace a 6600 rear shifter) and have found a possibility online but it is a 105 5600 shifter. I know it will fit, I know it will work and work just fine. But now the question...will it feel the same in my hand...while riding on the hoods or is it shorter reach or different shape or anything else that would make it feel a lot different than the Ultegra levers? The color won't match but I don't care about that. Just don't want to feel like things are out of balance or something while riding on the hoods...where I ride 95% of the time.

Thanks. Would compare in the store but they don't have this old stuff in stock and no group rides till Saturday (to compare with other bikes) and I hope to purchase ASAP.
