We bought an Italian quality chain back in 2013. Later I discovered it was made in China
too - even though the drum said clearly Made in Italy
. Bad chain.
So my take is to avoid any Chinese chain. Go for something made in the US.
You want to see heaps and heaps of zinc on your chain, NOT a fine silverish and shiny layer applied by a very tired operator at the end of their Friday shift.
I have seen old G4 ACCO chain on a friend's boat
. It was outstanding quality.
Take care. Buy the best. It does make sense.
