What would the real difference be between these (all 9 spd KMC) ... 0000000000
£6.59 ... 5000000000
£9.14 ... MCACHAI400

They have pricier ones too.

Is it weight, smoothness, durability, fancy packaging (!), feel good factor..?

I'm happy to buy the more expensive one if there is some real benefit. Actually I need two - one for my niceish summer road bike (Ultegra) and the other for an older touring bike.

    AFAIK just the finish

    for a few quid I'd get the shiny X9. Which I have. I run them on the commuter and the mtb. Good chains.
