i use gator mulching blades and the curved mulching blades( the ones without the teeth on the top) as well they're both great, i live in houston and the grass is usually moist and wet, and they perform well never had problems with them. here's a link on how the blades perform and they stripe well, i have mulching kit but i have not installed it cuz i see no point when my mower is working to perfection. the blades have been sufficient and dont need the kit.http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=256878&page=7

If I am understanding you right, you use the mulching blades year round?

yeah that's right, during the fall it tears up the leafs like no other. the only way is for you to try it out your self. I can give you my experience but what matters is what you get out of them. buy a set and try them out. those blades should not be more then $50 at the right price.

I went with the factory and you can hunt until you're old and gray but you'll not find any aftermarket offerings to compete with the factory. The factory weighs 3 times as much.

Nice machine Rabbit!

I have been using Gator magnums lately. The factories cut better I must admit. But the gators spit out smaller clippings than the factories leaving less visible clippings, clumps etc......
