Jigsaw blades

What type of jigsaw blade would you good folk recommend for a clean (versus fast) cut in 3/4in ply?
Is 10-12tpi reasonable? Am I right in thinking that it would be counterproductive to push this up to 20tpi?

Bosch Bi-metal, 10 TPI is about as good as you can get, but don't expct it to give a "clean" cut unless you are working with 13 ply Birch.
Cut proud and clean up with a router if you truly need a clean edge in ply.

Here's what I found:
* The Bosch T101AO (20 tpi) produced a very clean straight cuts. Not quite as clean as a router, of course. But I was pretty impressed with this saw cut.
However, it was a disaster on some (gentle) curves.
* I switched to the T119BO for the curves and they got the job done but with a fair bit of tearing that needed to be cleaned up.

Coincidentally, I recently saw an article or tip that suggested making a zero clearance jigsaw plate. Sorry I cannot recall where or when but if you Google it I'm reasonably certain you'll come up with something. Good luck.
