I've been going the AJ-way since I build my first 1x10 speed bike 10 years ago (even before N/W chainrings): XTR shifters with whatever derailleur was available/on sale. The reason for XTR shifters, is that the old 10sp XT shifters had a plastic lever. My current setup is a SLX RD-M7000-11 GS Shadow+ middle Cage paired with the ten years old XTR 10sp shifter and a 10sp 11x46 Sunrace cassette. Although there's a 0.2 difference in ratio between an 11sp and a 10sp, it shifts so good, that I can't tell the difference from a 10sp/10sp setup.
