I use MSW on Shimano chains. While the chain does not feel absolutely buttery smooth after maybe 50-100 miles, it’s far from unbearable after that. One time I think I rode 300 miles on the chain and it still didn’t quite feel “squeaky”. Rattly, sure. But there is clearance in the chain and the chain doesn’t have fluids to damp the noise.

I do have to say that the chain never feels as buttery smooth as when I ride in an absolute downpour. I would be willing to put up with nearly anything at nearly any cost if I could have a chain that always felt like that. By the way people described wax, especially based on the data I’ve seen, that was what I was expecting.
