I’ve used carbides out of the box and they do not cut as cleanly as gouges but they do well enough that it’s just a little extra sanding. IMO, gouges cut cleaner and faster. The only real advantage of carbide is it stays sharp longer and has very shallow learning curve. I like carbide for roughing very hard woods, saves sharpening.
