One thing to think about is the change this causes in setup position. With the 10 finger grip your right hand is invariably farther down the grip (righties) and you likely have a more accentuated shoulder tilt at setup. I'm far from a swing guru, but I believe that a shoulder tilt like that is considered to be a more powerful setup position. All else equal I wouldn't doubt that this can cause some distance fallout.
