I got one of those blades too, and while they are pricey, they last along time too. It also makes a huge difference on grabbing. As you may or may not know, I make a lot of custom wooden models so the parts I cut are often very small. Having a blade that won't grab is definitely worth the extra money...at least for me.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
