Circular saw blades. What's good

My circular saw and chop saw both have the original blade fitted and they aren't perfect. The current blades are: chop saw 210mm with 25.4mm bore (but I think it takes 20mm) and the circular saw 184mm with 30mm bore.

Whats's good out there. Mostly softwood, but some decking on the chopsaw and plywood and occasionally plastic with the circular saw. Is it worth getting a range of blades?

For quality cuts at a good price look for Dart blades and ask for a redfucer washer, 30mm outside/25.4mm inside. These blades are now sold by loads of ironmongers at really good prices (Amazon isn't the best, but it's a starter).

For your ripper I'd go to eBay and look for Bosch Construct blades in the appropriate size. They also do 24 tooth and 36 tooth in that diameter/bore. The nice thing about the Bosch blades is that they give a good cut AND they'll withstand hitting a nail or two along the way

I know these aren't the cheapest, but I reckon you get what you pay for, especially with blades. Some of the cheap Chinese rip blades are truly horrible
