Reynolds, in my opinion.
(I have no facts on which to base the opinion, though!)

I use the standard AE chain.
Reason: They are not pre stretched and a little shorter. BUT I use them only one or two years.

Iwis out of Geramny if you can find one, they come standard on Rollmaster timing kits, but Triumph has very few offering thru Rollmaster. A standard timing chain for a Sprite or B is what maybe $10, a Iwis is like $40, so you don't see folks like Moss selling them. Goggle up Romac and you should be able to find the website to see if you can get a Iwis for your engine

Very fine chain, strong and will last for ever. Used at Mercedes Benz Diesel engines.

One disadvantage: They are stretched and slightly longer than the standard chain. That's the only reason why I don't use them. But for road engines they are okay.

I sell their vernier timing gear set and harmonc balancer for A-series, Gordon at The BiHive sells the B-series stuff, David Anton at APT sells both A and B, I bleive Seven Enterprises and Mini Mania both sell the A-series stuff as well.
