Has anyone had their hands on both of the Shimano 11sp STI levers? How do they compare in ergonomics? They look pretty identical apart from slight differences in hood color and, perhaps, material. Any other differences that are not apparent in the pics?

Do the 6870 levers have the enhanced tactile feedback in the shift buttons that the 9070 have when compared to the previous generation?

I need a set of shifters for a second bike and, if the ergonomics are the same, the 6870 are a lot cheaper than a second set of 9070 levers.

I've been riding with 6870 for a few months now, but only have SRAM Red to compare to. I can tell that I have many miles with heavy winter gloves and have had absolutely no issues with 'feeling' the shifter buttons. The buttons do seem to have a good 'click' to them. Very happy with the product.
