Sawtroll I donot see how .325 is going to give him any better cutting speed , 3/8's is faster period , end of story , even on the crap 40cc huskys 3/8's is faster as long as you know how to file . Cutting in the bush even on saws like a 385 I only run 7 tooth , hell on the farms 660 it runs a 7 tooth cause the 8 pin sure heats the hell out of the motor in those big 5 foot in diameter hardwood cuts , You guys have no idea on how many times I have been told a 8 pin is faster on a saw like a 372 when the guy is falling timber , then show him its not , biggest thing is most guys chain is not sharp so they start pushing on it , make the chain sharp is the biggest thing you can do to cut faster , if you think a new chain out of the box is sharp then believe me its not even close to what it can be and that goes for round filed to
I agree with you 110% Ed. I like the 3/8  7 on everything. You sharpen the tooth to match your saw....
