Rip away, since you don’t really rip plywood as it has alternating layers with the grain direction at 90 degrees to each other. If you’re talking about cutting with the grain of the surface as ripping, that’s no problem as the Hi-A/T does it great. The Hi-A/T shines at cutting across the grain of the surface, minimizing any tear out top and bottom. I have the same blade and love it. Also, check out the new Forrest 70-tooth plywood blade at considerably less and does near the same job (have it too and use it most the time,saving the Hi-A/T for really good veneer). See:

For ripping, I use either of these: (1)

or (2)

Good luck and enjoy. I agree Forrest are the best currently available and you get what you pay for.
