If you want a really great blade, get the Freud glue line rip blade. Amazingly good blade. I also have switched to the full kerf rip blade Freud offers in their industrial line. Not quite as fine a finish on the cut as the Glue line, but man, no distordeflection tion of the blade, ever. One more thing about saw blades, I recently realized I was not raising the blade quite high enough when doing a rip cut. Now I try to get the blade high enough so most of the gullet is above the work piece, which allows the gullet to carry more sawdust down into the dust collection system in the saw. A surprising difference with abut 1/4 inch higher setting.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
