Honestly the oem "design" blades work the best for me. The G6 blades do work well but they don't create quite as much vacuum which tends to leave a few stragglers in lawns that are not real thick and lush. I but stens high lift blades and they are almost a carbon copy of the oem blades. Ariens owns stens so it makes sense. They however are not marbane and they do dull a little faster than the oem blades. I pay something like $56 shipped for 2 full sets.
