Is there really any difference between a Mach V and a Chainstar?

Mach V:

Chainstar:
Look at how the chains are kept together at the bottom. Mach V has two rings. The Chainstar only has one.

In theory:
This causes an extra spring effect. On Mach V, the outside chains have spring, inner are cushioning. On Chainstars, both sets are spring.

If that makes sense.

Thanks, hadn't noticed that. Not saying 1 vs 2 rings doesn't have any effect, but I honestly don't think that would make a truly measureable difference.

But I could be wrong:

Thank you all.

Anything else??
If that's the only difference, I have trouble wrapping my head around players that have say they prefer for Mach V's over Chainstars.... or vice-versa for that matter.

Personal Note: Really need to pay attention to chain movement next time I visit a course with either of these.

The springy thing is enough to discern a preference of one over the other.

Who needs a bullseye when you can just use duct tape. Adjust your Zone Tighter and Tighter.
