Is there sufficient flow/pressure to run 14 feet of PEX tube from Delta R11000 diverter to remote hand held shower unit? Due to corner stud restrictions, have to run tube down into crawl back to drop ear. 64 psi at home connection.

Valve itself with flow 5 gpm at 60 lbs with 3/4" feeding. But hand held shower dictates flow. Couldn't find any info on pressure drop through the valve and size of PEX your running.

Shower only with stops
High Flow
No tub outlet

Thank you.
7 foot 1/2" PEX supply feeds from 3/4" trunk to R10000 valve. Then 8 inch 1/2" feed to R11000 diverter. Corner studs prevent running 7 feet direct to hand held. Afraid of linking PEX. Current route is back down to crawl and over 5 feet and up 4 feet up to drop ear.
I think my alternative is to install an additional R10000 at hand held location which is a 6-7 foot supply run with 1/2" PEX off the 3/4" trunk.

Would there be more flow if I run 3/4" feeds from trunk, then reduce to 1/2" valve?
Delta valves only have 1/2" inlets, so, I figured it gets reduced to 1/2" anyway I proceed.
