EK vs RK chain

the EK 3d 530 chain is the big bad chain currently offered. I am coming from a EK ZZZ 530 so that would be the reasonable replacement. Strength: 11,400lbs of tensile strength

Then, I found RK MAX Z 530. 11,200lbs tensile strength

The RK is almost $100 cheaper in most cases, and appears to be close on specs etc.

Anyone heard anything about this RK line of chains good or bad?

RK is a top chain. I've been using RK Gold chains since they were created, matter of fact I dont take chances with anything else.

I'm def not knocking RK, I just know EK has had the heavy hitter chain for the recent past (ZZZ and now 3d). I just like options.

Plus, RK chain comes in black, and even red
