New Oregon EXL Chain - game changer?

Recommended Posts

 
 
Good stats - let us know when you have the vids posted and I'll refund the order.
Changed phone and lost the videos but still very happy with the newer chain. Definitely holds tension and sharpness better than the old stuff even though they're sharpened identically.

I can get a full day's use out of one chain with only 1 tension up (as long as I don't do anything silly with a small log) and that's really all I can ask of them.

Harder to see the difference on a standard saw though I feel.

I've been bashing the Oregon chain 75EXL for a while now.
After initial stretching they are fine.
It does keep its edge a bit longer I've found.
Not a game changer, but a decent chain from Oregon
