    I vote A. That's what mine looks like.

    Less weight, less chain frapping, less hanging down to snag.

    I can barely tell the difference if any. I think there is a tensionometer or something for the most accurate tension.

    yes. i vote for A as well, less chances of slap.

    actually four years ago, my first SS looked like that.

    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.
