The JD 7-Iron seems to be a favorite here.

The word "WET" stands out in your post which would make me believe that the Deere 7iron deck or the Scag Velocity deck would be the best.

I can't say how well either one works in bahia grass, but those two decks would probably be the best.

Exmark UltraCut dry, Deere 7 Iron 2 or pro wet

Yep.

Those two are consistently recommended here on lawnsite for the conditions you describe.

My 60" Dixie does excellent in dry Bahia. I don't really know how it does in the wet because I arrange my schedule so my Bahia lawns are dry by the time I get to them. As you're aware Bahia grows like wild and I haven't even attempted to cut it wet.
