I haven't been impressed with the oems for my grasses. Still getting stingers/stragglers in the thin wispy fescus. That and they are soft and not much meat to grind on. Seems anything I touch with them makes a ding in them. Sharpened them I believe three times and almost looks like I'll be lucky to get three or four more sharpenings out of them before I toss them. The fusions I've been running on my other mowers will have the rear lift wing wear through from our sandy soils in areas before I run out of meat to sharpen and don't seem to be effected as easily by small pebbles and debris. The fusions do take longer to sharpen though.
