I have been using wipperman 10 speed links on 11 speed for years, they work perfectly, no noise or any other problems. The only difference I have found between these and the 11 speed is the writing on the packaging and the price!
i too have been using the 10 speed links on 11 speed, but have had a nagging problem when using the 13T cog on 2 different DA 11-28 casettes the DA chain would jump for no reason. under load. Chain had not reached its .5 wear yet. Finally remembered to check it out on the repair stand and it was at the 10 speed Connex link on the 11 speed system. The pins on the Connex link are ever so slighly longer and randomly the chain would move laterally and catch one of the shifting grooves on the 15T and cause the hop. Changed the link to a 11 speed Connex link and no more issues

Not noticed that myself, but there are many reasons this could happen on one frame with that link and not another, stay length, chain ring size and spacing. I had taken a look recently at the cost of the 11 speed links but found that none of my normal online shops had any stock. Are they still available?

The Dura Ace chain CN-HG901-11 (https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/ ... 01-11.html) comes in two different versions: one with and one without the quick link.
The quick link cannot be reused.

I use the gold KMC ones because they're easier to spot lol
