I have recently, last year, broken three Wippermann chains. All measured as still good with a Park Chain measuring tool.

I have run Wippermann for close to 10 years without problems before. My last chain break was climbing a steep grade and I'm still singing Soprano.

I am thinking of trying another brand and was looking for some advice.

I run Campy 10 speed.

I really like having a master link and prefer not to use Campy chains because of their cost. Anyone have a strong opinion on SRAM or KMC? I have heard of people running Shimano chains, but don't want to go this route. thanks

Master links are all well and good if you are racing and need to get it on and off the bike for maintainance but really most of us don't bother. Too much of a liability.

Running DuraAce 7900 chain and very, very happy with it.
