Excuse me if this is an old topic, but I can't find straight answers and I would like a fresh view.

I currently use a Shimano CN-HG-6600 chain which works smoothly and holds up reasonably. It wears only twice as fast as a good old CN-HG-73 (9 speed 105). :rolleyes:

The question is - is a Dura-Ace better, for 20% more money? And is the 105 version a lesser chain, for 25% less money? :confused:

The Dura-Ace has shiny plating everywhere. The Ultegra has only plated outer links, the 105 has none. FWIW.

The Ultegra has pretty link pin bushes formed into its inner side plates. The others??
