I have some MLCS bits and the Freud Quadra Cuts.

Honestly, I don’t find all that much difference in the final product, especially after finish sanding.

Actually, I stand corrected; there is considerably less tearout with the Freuds. Also, the Freuds are ridiculously sharp. I can hold an MLCS bit without any worry of slitting my hand open. The Freud on the other hand, is an adventure in safety just trying to mount the bit in the router.

This will probably be the only time I’ll use a 1” bullnose, so I don’t see the need to spend $60/$70 on a premium bit.
