I don t believe a blade with a 1/16” kerf will rip with any accuracy. Because of it s thinness, the blade will have the tendency to “flutter”. I m not familiar with the Infinity blade, but it doesn t sound like a good idea. I ve used really thin kerf blades on my table saw, but they were 7 1/4” i diameter and used on small stock and still it flutters at times.
Typical band saw blades are .025 or .035 thick.

Having done it with the Infinity Laser Kerf blade, I have to respectfully disagree, though I do understand your logic. They did a nice job with this blade. No doubt, a thinner blade can be more susceptible to flex, but between the permanent stabilizer and the quality of the construction and design, this one really worked quite well IME.
