Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur compatible with 9 speed cassette

Can I use an Ultegra 6600 10 speed rear derailleur on 9 speed cassette?
I currently have a 9 speed but I want to upgrade the rear derailleur and I can get a 10 speed Ultegra from a friend for nothing. This is the only component I want to switch out.

Yes, you can use it.

The shifters regulate the distance the derailler moves, not the derailler itself.

Thank you, I thought it would work but just wanted to check.
I threw it on and it works fine.
