Rated 5 out of 5 by Sevrd Only bad thing is mushroomed pins.
I'm very happy with my order.
I ordered (2)Yaban BF410S2 chains for my single speed Banshee Morphine. It is a strong, and surprisingly bulky chain. It's only a millimeter smaller than my brother's 3/16" KMC 415h, but it's a 1/8" spaced chain! The mushroomed pins made separating it kind of difficult. It took me like 25 minutes to break it to length. I suggest getting a park tool ct-7 or similar single speed chain breaker, or even a motorcycle chain breaker for this chain(I only had a Lezyne 10speed breaker, but it worked with a lot of effort, and bent drivers...). They are 102 link chains, so plan accordingly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robin90 Really worth the buy!
This chain is so thick, more so than anything ive seen so far. Ive had it a few months now and it stretched a little but well worth buying for the cost. The only issue would be a chain breaker that can touch it. Seems to be too thick for most and it took two of us with a shadow breaker to break it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveJobs Strongest Chain Ever Used
This chain is stupidly strong; I ride a jump bike so don't do any grinds or anything that would unduly stress a chain, but still get through them at some rate of knots; broke a cheap and nasty halfords one within an evening once. Had this chain for nearly three years now and it's never had an issues; to put that in perspective I used to get through KMC kool chains in three -6 months. Seriously recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable, reliable chain, that refuses to snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous So strong
Chain is strong and heavy like a chain should be. My only problem is my chainbreaker can't break it and it took half an hour for my local bike shop to fit it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous heavy but super strong
I have a gusset tank chain as a spare which is this but with a gusset name to it. It's a bushing link chain so is stupidly strong. ignore the guy above as he obviously fitted it wrong if he broke it when the only chain stronger is a khe collapse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Dangerous!
On my second ride with this chain one of the side plates snapped clean in two while under power. Could have easily caused a nasty crash. This wasn't what I would expect for a 2 ride old chain. I have been riding for years and fitted many chains so I'm certain it wasn't down to the installation but the questionable quality of the chain. If I had seen the SRAM chain for the same price I would have gone for that one, and I will be sticking with SRAM in the future as I have done up to now!
