Before anyone makes the assumption that one blade is better than another, I must emphasize the importance of a saw that is accurate and everything is adjusted for the best it can be. That is, an arbor that has minimal runout, a fence that is parallel to the blade and a miter gauge that can maintain settings. If a saw is not setup correctly, even a Forrest blade may not perform as it should. So make sure your saw is in good condition before considering a blade. If the saw is not aligned perfectly, the performance of any blade you put on it will be meaningless.

Great point Ron….couldn’t agree more. I’ll add that choosing the right blade for the task is extremely important too. If you use a 24T rip blade for fine crosscuts or plywood, it’ll cut, but you’re not likely to get optimum results.
