    I think they are both great options. I have a cc110 and a cc40 and I couldnt be happier.

    i'd go with the cc40, but that's just personal; preference. i have one after having king headsets for years along with a cc110. they are cheap, sealed and look good. i flushed the stock grease and replaced with high quality synthetic grease before i installed because i had heard of people complaining that after 6 months or so the bearings were getting rough. no problems so far.

    fas is good alos, i just have little personal experience with them. king still has the best bearings and now are finally using a real compression ring now that they don't have to pay patent fees. i'd rather put the savings somewhere it really matters though. i don't think you can go wrong either way

    I have heard many LBS recommend the FSA so it's probably decent.
    The same LBS tell me the CC110 is da bomb, they like it more.
    The CC40 gets a respectful nod at the LBS but I am not sure if it really trumps the FSA.

    Thought CC is an American company, the CC 40 is made in china and has a ball bearing which is coated with a black substance to prevent rust and a 1 year warranty.

    The CC 110 is made in America, and has a true stainless steel ball bearing and 110year warranty!

    The FSA - I can not tell much about, I don't know where it's made or what materials it has or what the warranty is.

    The CC is great, but the FSA is pretty decent, nothing wrong with either that I know of.
