Anyone using it or have experience with it?

Found it. It's stihl RS chain but square RSLK.  So it's good. You can convert round to square to save if round on hand.

I use a lot of square ground stihl chain.  It cuts well out of the box, really smooth.

I've been using RSLHK a few years now and really like it on PNW wood

Both my 60 cc and my 3 70 cc saws wear RSLHK

I even use it on my MS261

I went into Woods Logging in Sedro and started talking with some loggers that were in there and that conversation came up between them and most of them were using it so ......

I've used a good bit of it. I split several rolls with Shaun.

Stihl 3/8 RS and the square variation RSL have a .063 diver chassis no matter the thickness of the drivers in the bar groove - where the Oregon 3/8 LGX and the square variation CL has a .058 chassis for both .050 and .058 drivers unless you are running .063 drivers.

So you weight freaks, as a general rule, the Oregon weighs less?
