Fine Woodworking did a comparison on all the popular combo blades, in the current issue. The Freud red blade was rated #1for cleanest rip and crosscut. It was downrated for slow rip rate. They offered the Forrest or the Ridge as faster ripping alternatives at the cost of a little rougher cut. My only experiene with Freud was a 12" in a miter saw. It was thin kerf and had no stabilizers, so it was probably partially my fault for a bad choice, but the it was terrible. I could never get a repeatable cut. A standard kerf Forrest fixed all.What are you cutting? How thick?
If you are satisfied with the fence, blade alignment and feed rate, that only leaves the blade. In my experience, the Tenryu 24 tooth full kerf rip blade will give you a much better cut than any red blade. Actually, almost any other decent rip blade (Amana, Forrest WWII, Infinity, Carbide Processor s, etc) will far out perform those crappy red blades.
