Anyone using this chain have a real weight for a cut chain, probably around 106 links? YBN claims that it's 210g, but I wanted to see if more than that or not. I'm considering the chain, but not if the weight difference from a KMC X10SL is a decent amount.

Mine was 106 links at 214g with the yaban quick release link, which may add some grams

Thanks. So thats around 15g less than the KMC chain. Doesn't seem like it's worth the extra cost.

I guess the difference is has ti nitride roller and that it self lubricates, supposed to have an extra 2-3 time more durability, but I can't confirm that.

My reasoning for using it was for my weight weenie build, where the Yaban Ti was the lightest option.

Yeah, that's the same reason in thinking about it for my build. But it's not much lighter than the KMC but it's three times the price. I thought there was a bigger difference in weight.
