I am trying to determine what replacement #35 chain to buy for my LO206. Every chain company describes their chain as the “best on the market” but I am having a hard time finding real-world reviews on how the various options actually perform compared to each other. From a few threads on other sites, I have noticed the opinion that RLV Gold/Gold chain is popular and performs okay but is perhaps not the best option. It sounds like Regina Extra (the most expensive option I have seen) and EK Silver Pro are considered by some to be superior to the RLV G/G chain. Does that align with all of your experience?
I also am intrigued by the Panther #35 chain as well as RLV’s Reaper chain which they claim is “ultra free spinning”. Hard to tell what is just marketing and snake oil vs. actually better than alternatives.
What has worked the best for you?
