I have used the KMC Missing Link in the past with no issues. I have since purchased the Campagnolo 11 speed chain tool and now pin and peen my chain. I like to change my chain frequently (~every 1200 miles) so as not to wear out my cassette prematurely.

Slightly off topic: I use an 11 speed Record chain with Chorus cassette. Everything else is Super Record mechanical. Has anyone tried the Chorus chain with this set up? I was thinking a Chorus chain might last a little longer.
Chorus cassettes cost $135.
Record chains cost $50.
Chorus chains cost $40.

Well lubed chains should last >4x as long as you're using them for, so you're wasting money.

I suspect the only difference between the Record and Chorus chain is the use of hollow pins. This has no effect on chain wear.
