    I prefer ms 150 with a headset 3/8 1.1.

    That echo looks like a little ripper, and at $200 less than a ms150. Too bad they aren't selling with a 10" bar in the states.
    For all you 150 guys, is there a decent 1/4p chain out there?

    I haven't run anything but Stihl chain for years after getting tired of crappy chain made by Oregon and sold under various brand names. Nothing else even comes close. The Stihl 1/4" pitch chain is pretty good and quite sharp out of the box. Filing takes a little practice but I've got mine to hold an edge and cut well all the way back to the wear markers.

    Ditto.

    I don't have any problem sharpening that wee chain. Apart from in the early days when I found if you breath out on a file stroke, the file snapped.

    With the benefit of a very low kickback tendency, from the micro chain and the tiny nose.

    I don't have broken a file, yet. Maybe if I sneeze...

    Stay with the Stihl 1/4" picco chain...at least you don't have to pay $40 a loop in the US!!
    Quality.

    It seems to me that the advantages of this chain are too exaggerated.

    I'm just saying that Stihl chain is better than any other kind of chain.

    Agreed. I gave up on other brands many years ago. They are all made by Oregon anyway, except the really cheap stuff like the Chinese crap Bailey's sells. I don't have time to mess with crappy, discount chain. I get a month or more out of a chain on a top handle saw, no need to pinch pennies and save a couple dollars per loop for chain that only lasts half as long.
