The Griz catalog has (haven't looked in current one yet) offered both Timberwolf and Olso blades. Few folks would class those as junk. But that doesn't mean what is shipped with a new bandsaw would be one of those.
A lot of guys have the riser and haven't complained. You don't like yours, I'll keep that in mind when I (someday) install mine.
