    GB Ti or Cannon for bars, Carlton/Baileys WP for chain (cost-effectiveness wins over abstract "quality" of Stihl stuff).

    I will simply NOT second guess Computeruser. I am taking notes and applying this to memory as I type.

    In other words, take that as gospel.

    I use "Oregon" chains, I wait until there is a 2 for 1 sale at my local dealer. I like them because they have a "guide" line on each tooth to keep your file on the right angle for sharpening.
