but is there really a difference between the platings?
Corrosion resistance

FYI-I've used CN 7701, HG93, and HG73 chains over the last 6 years or so and haven't found any appreciable difference in shifting performance but it did seem like the CN 7701 and HG93 chains lasted a bit longer. I don't think it has to do with platings as much as tighter tolerances for the Japanese made chains.

Would the HG93 wear notably faster than the CN-7701?
