I used two chains with this drivetrain because the Banshee is so much longer than my Marin. The first was the Deore and I went for XT with the second. I cannot comment of comparable life from this process but I will say I think the XT shifted a bit smoother from fresh. My experience working on Shimano 12-spd (aside from this test) is that the XT chain is the sweet spot for price, performance, longevity and where I’m happy to recommend M6100 to most riders I’d always suggest an XT chain with it.
