left hand bar end shifter for rear derailleur

I'm converting from STI to a single bar end shifter for my 1x commuter and I'm wondering if the left hand friction shifter has the pull needed to shift my RD. My previous commuter was an 8 speed 1x with a friction shifter and I grew to love it, so I'd like to do the same with my shimano 105 10-speed if possible.
I'm going to order some dura ace 10 speed bar ends so I'll have the option either way, but the way I see it both shifters would have an equal cable pull. Am I mistaking?

AFAIK Lh and Rh bar end levers usually do have the same cable pulls, of the same versions/brands. The SunTour bar Cons I have give about a 15.1mm cable pull amount. What your der and cog set will need I don't know. Andy

Newer Shimano rear 10-speed bar ends do not have a friction option so you will have to use the "front" shifter.

I have a pair of SL-BS79 shifters and. as best I can measure them, both the front and rear shifters have the same diameter cable "drum" and the same travel so they should pull the same amount of cable.
