I only use the 9* blades on my mill (LT15 w/ 19hp), they absolutely work great in every species and condition I have sawn. Helps to keep things simple and organized with only one blade type.

Is their something special about the WM 9 degree band ?
I have 8 degree from another Co and they don't cut anything close to the WM bands .

I believe there is something different about them, even vs the other woodmizer blades in different pitches. I can't recall exactly, but I remember reading about the 9* blades being a different tooth profile or something, made them work well on lower powered mills, IIRC. Maybe someone with more blade knowledge can give you a more precise answer.

I just got two .045" 9 degree blades the other day a couple months ago as per a recommendation from a fellow ff member.  Haven't tried them yet.  The gullet looks alot smaller.  No offense.

Most of the time we only mention the angle of the front of the tooth, but there is also a angle on the back. Hence the difference between the WM 7* and Turbo 7*. So the overall profile of the tooth can be much different between the different blades. I purchased the WM blade gauge while ordering some other mill parts. It becomes quite obvious when the blade does not match the gauge, and you can see the overall difference between the tooth profiles.

I recently acquired 4*, 7*, Turbo 7*, 9*, and (more) 10*. My mill has a 15HP Kohler. I started with the 10* then changed to the 7*. I find the 7* to cut better and last longer than the 10*. I look forward to trying the 4, turbo 7, and 9 degree profiles. I strongly believe the correct blade is based more on personally technique than on horsepower or the particular mill.

 After cutting well over 2 million bf I've come to the conclusion that a shallow gullet like a WM 9░ and the Simonds I run cut straighter.   More blade, less tooth.  Steve
