I mean, if you're getting a half a foot of growth in one week
that deck would seem better for that...no?
High Flow Tunnel Deck - Featuring heavy-duty 7-gauge welded construction and overlapping blades, this expertly engineered deck quickly levels the tallest grass in no time. Breezing right along devouring grass, you can confidently protect your trees and shrubs as you trim, thanks to a pliable rubber discharge chute.

1.5” overlapping blades prevent streaking
Set back blades from front edge of the deck allow grass to stand up before being cut leaving a professional manicured appearance
I have a lot of experience with tunnel style commercial grade decks since I've owned several of them over the last decade.
I have one for my CUT that is a tunnel deck and 60" cut. Then I have my Z950 with the 60" Pro MOD deck. The tunnel deck will lay low any grass for sure, and cut cleanly, but it can't process material through as fast or as well in tall, and/or thick grass at the same speed as you can with one of the decks that are commonly used on most Z's will, ie; full depth over the entire cutting area.
