are the timing chaing brands equal?

I see the B-E chains for 60
and I see the IWIS chains for ... 150...
just wondering if they are equal or is one more prone to failure?
anybody out there using the B-E? ya think it's worth nearly triple the cost for the IWIS?

There was a photo on here showing the difference between the two chains.

It was clear that you get what you pay for. The IWIS has beefy links and side plates and appears to be of much higher quality.

Whether it's worth the price...........I can't say.............it would depend on how many miles I expected from it.

Here's a link to pics of BE and IWIS
IWIS vs. Beck/Arnley - Pics

If you do a search for Beck Arnley I think you'll find some dissatisfied BA chain users.
