”I’ll admit I’ve never used a dedicated rip blade because of the quality of cut I get from my Forrest combo. Maybe I’m missing something.”

Charlie – If your Forrest combo is a 40T, it should give a cleaner cut than a good 24T TK ripper, but the ripper will loaf through thicker material a lot more easily. Like Joe says, it just makes the saw seem more powerful in thicker rips. Many of the 20T-24T rippers will still leave a cut that’s marginally “glue-up ready” right off the saw. If you’re strictly a Forrest guy, their 30T WWII is really good, and definitely leaves a glue line edge.
