Well it looks like the Stihl RS is coming in with a high rating.
PP 505, 475, 445.

Only reason I went with RS was the gullet of the chains coming stock off the reel.

I figure by the time you get to modifying a race chain that it really does not matter that much on what you start with.   I guess if the cutter height is higher that could be an advantage but how much in .325 I do not know.   It seems to me a lot of other things will come into play.

Yep

I did notice even though RS dont have the bumper link like the LPX. I would swear the RS felt heavier picking up.

Can anyone weigh the 2 loops stock for stock?

or have a scale I could use to check local.

Like I said on the .325 build thread the narrow kerf 95VPX even though it's semi chisel, it will surprise the .325 chisel users in stock class 8X8.
The new 95TXL is supposed to be even faster.

That top chain 95VPX looks like Vangard chain. I suppose that's what the "V" stands for?

No bent over depth gauge on the 95VPX.  Same style as the LPX just narrower.
91VXL is the lo profile 3/8" semi chisel. Still waiting for Oregon to introduce a 91 series chisel.
