Depends on flexibility, size of the gut and size of the deficit etc I guess.
I pull from about a 4 inch deficit and I don't have so big of a gut that I can't get my legs really into it. Other people I know make it mostly a stiff leg. So ideally it shouldn't become a SLDL by default and if you have the flexibility and lack of gut then it won't. But for the heavier guys it might do.
That's really just guessing there though 5kg, that's not something I've ever even considered. They're very different lifts for me.
