Hello SirDucky and welcome to the Community.

The best type of  RECIPROCATING SAW BLADE will depend on the job you are going to use it for. 
Materials, tooth configuration and heat treating are designed to maximize performance in specific cutting applications.  Most manufacture's blades with a 1/2 in. universal tang will fits all standard reciprocating saws.

Below you will see blades the are designed to cut nail embedded wood and Bi-metal.


The Milwaukee, diamond-grit torch is ideal for cutting cast iron, hard tile, masonry and other abrasive and hard materials.


There is even a grout rake blade or scrapper blade.


There is a variety of lengths, shorter ones for more stability and thin kerf for mutli-material cuts. It may be handy to have a basic variety pack on hand.


Thanks for your inquiry.

Hey SirDucky.

I think your question could be restated as "what brand of blades work best with my Ryobi reciprocating saw?".

If you look at the pictures Char posted, you will notice that all of these blades have the same mounting format.  The brand of blade you choose does not need to match the brand of tool you have.  They all fit your saw.  As Char said, choose based on the material you want to cut.  The performance, (speed) and longevity of the blade will be reflected in its price compared to others designed for the same type of work.  As with so many products, often you will find choices that reflect good, better or best.

If you are just starting out with a new saw, a set of blades will allow you to do a variety of tasks and save significant money compared to buying individual blades one at a time.  The set below is a very popular choice:
