Hey Money, I have the micro mulch on my 36" Exmark Turf Tracer and I've used the double blades. I like the result, particularly on heavy grass.
Now, on leaves, I've had some trouble because they tend to blow out from under the deck instead of getting sucked in and mulched because of the increased air volume of the double blades. Eric, the illustrious moderator to our forum, has spoken of decreasing throttle to 75% when attacking leaves on their own (i.e. grass has stopped growing for the season) in order to better suck them under the deck. I have not tried this method as of yet, but intend to this coming week.
I ended up switching back to single blade operation simply because of the leaf problem, but I'm going back to doubles this week. Whether it works out or not, I already intend to slap the doubles on again come Spring.
I'd be a fool not to... ;)
