bang for the buck 1/8" chain

Okay, I searched but couldn't find the expected thread on the "best" track chain. I won't be racing in Japan Kierin's anytime soon but would like a trustworthy chain. Nothing fixie fancy. Any thoughts on brand/model?

KMC 510 or 710, either are under $20. YBN are decent as well.

I used to be a fan of the K710, but it's very difficult to remove links and it's overkill for track use.

My new favorite is the Izumi ECO ($15 or less online).
