Is there a noticeable reach difference between regular shifters and hydraulic? The 105 look a bit longer than their rim brake counterpart.

you mean the amount of pull? or actual reach to the hoods? hydro mechanical involves more complex internals as you have levers and a master cylinder to cram in.
