I'm not a bandsaw expert, but after watching about 14,000 Alex Snodgrass videos where he recommends Carter blades I decided to try one out.
I bought his "favorite", which is the Carter 3/8" 3TPI Green Wood blade for my Rikon 14" saw.
I have to say....it's great. He's right. I can cut some seriously tight radii as well as some really straight lines without much drift. I can't tell you how long it lasts because mine's still sharp and unbroken. But I felt it was a reasonable price, and I got it from Woodcraft locally.
I hope this helps you.
