They're extremely efficient, quite comparable to a full size antenna but they're very narrow banded so you're regularly retuning when you change frequency.
The bandwidth on 10m band is 25kHz, just over 2 channels on a CB. So if you move from Ch19 to even just Ch22 you're going to need to retune.
If it's for DX there's much better options. A mono band G3TPW cobwebb antenna for the 11m band would be just four feet square and would cover the entire band. You could home brew one with bamboo canes, a bit of wire and a 4:1 balun. That should fit in any loft.
