Chains

What are you guys running for chains? I broke one today on a training ride and need to replace it. I have heard good things about KMC for durability and strength. I was running a sram chain FWIW.

wipperman FTW second place Id say KMC or Sram KMC is suposed to be the strongest and lightest but I like the Sram chains I've had

Big fan of Wippermann, myself, for 10-speed stuff. 9-speed, I'm all for SRAM.

I've been using Wipperman. I might give the KMC SL a try since Mark Legg-Compton says they are the best.

I put an Ultegra on the cross bike because that is what I have laying around. I did purchase a KMC SL as a backup.

I always used SRAM with my 9 speed stuff. I have a Shimano chain for my ten speed set up and already broke it once, just relinked it. I'd like good suggestions on strong chains as well.
