Freud makes a 24 tooth Diablo rip blade that does a great job (D1024X). It s amazing how much difference that will make.

Ditto. I think a dedicated rip blade will fix your problem. You combo blade will handle most cuts but rips on thick, dense woods like HM are hard on a blade with that many teeth.
