7/8 but I think that hook angle is more important. I run 10 deg

7/8s because that's the way Wood-Mizer blades come.  I think now they've got a couple of others for some special applications.  But with all the other variables,  sticking with 7/8s is at least one I don't have to worry about.

7/8" is pretty much the standard.Many of the 1 1/4" bands use 3/4" spacing,probibly its easier on light power plants.I've used and like 1" spacing.You won't go wrong with 7/8" probibly the angle of the tooth {hook} has more to do with how it cuts.Frank C.
