Is there a big difference between these two ( I will be using a rear Dura_ace)?

I've use both on a few different machines, and there is a difference. The Dura Ace feels like the throws (STI) are a bit shorter, and cleaner. Is it worth the extra doe? That is a question only you can answer!

Honestly with 10spd shifters I really can't tell a difference between 105/Ultegra/Dura Ace. With the 9spd stuff there was more of a difference it seemed.
