Guides on 10-325 are inadequate for this saws potential.

Ordering a double roller bearing set. Had saw for a few days now and like it a lot, but, relate all it’s shortcomings to the lack of blade support at the guides.
I’ve examined cuts with two blades. The 5/8” that came with it, and a New TmbrWlf 3/4”. The better cut was the TWolf, of course, but the lack of stable contact on the blade sides is a major flaw.
This saw deserves double rollers.
I am ordering Carters promptly.
Too bad though, Rikon could win mine (possibly yours) and many woodworkers talking about the 14” Deluxe with Double Roller Bearings.
I know they sell the 14” Pro…but, the price diff is ridiculous.
Just put a decent set of guides on a saw and sell it, WTF!
