    Need a new Shimano 10sp shifter

    I can simply buy a Shimano M780 XT shifter to replace the one I killed in a crash. But I am wondering if I should spend the extra $10 and get a M8000 which is 11 speed even though I would use it with a 10 speed derailleur.

    Would it work? I assume the indexing is the same and I can limit it to 10 speeds via the limit screws.

    Are there any advantages to getting the M8000 aside from it allowing a future 11 speed upgrade?

    I think the spacing on a 11 speed cassette is narrower, so unless you go with an 11 speed cassette I don't think this will work.
