I love using Ryoba’s to rip with, and they seem to rip pine like butter in my experience. I’ve heard horror stories about the box store knockoffs that have blue, flame hardened tips…they are sharpened in a crosscut pattern on the rip side, instead of the straight across rip pattern. If it’s not tracking right, it could be because of inconsistent set in the teeth…I always remove the set from mine, leaving just a tiny bit, then wax it with paste wax or beeswax. If it’s brand new, you could also use a piece of 220 sandpaper and run it along each side of the teeth to remove any sharpening burrs that are grabbing (an old timer trick). Good luck…once you get it right, you’ll be amazed.
