Recip saw blade suggestions

Didn't know which form to put this in.

I want a good recip saw blade. Box store has name brands items for $4-5. Then you go to ones like the Lenox brand for $15-20.

Are the pricey ones worth it? Is there an off-brand that compares to the Lenox for less?

Same goes for oscillating blades... anyone have a favorite brand? Best bang for the buck? Or am I just being cheap and just buy the pricey ones cause you get what u pay for?

The Milwaukee Ax Blade will cut anything except cast iron.

What you're going to do with them is important when choosing them.

I don't usually spend a lot for my sawsall blades. I've broken or bent as many as I've worn out. As mentioned above you do need to pick the correct type of blade for the job at hand.
