I run a 90 tooth blade for fine cutting. But for dead nuts miter cuts I use a 45* sled on the TS.

Same here. For the fine cuts I use a sled on the TS with a high count crosscut blade. I use an 80 tooth Hi ATB made just for TS crosscuts. The one currently is a Ridge carbide blade

On the miter saw I use a very nice blade, but usually save the money for the TS blade for the sled. The crosscuts can be ok, or even a little rough. Right now I have this Freud on my 12 inch chopper I picked that one because I had a job where I was cutting 8” wide pieces of plywood to length, and I didn’t want it to fray up at the cut lines. It does a great job on solid woods as well, so if you will it’s a “combo” blade for all materials on a chopper. If it wasn’t for the plywood I had planned I would have bought a lower priced blade for the chopper. I’ve found when sharp even medium quality blades work ok for non finish cuts on a chopper.
