All but a couple of Honda models use twin-blades this way, and the cut quality is excellent.

Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding is my opinion alone.
I thought about that but could not figure a way to do it without lowering the bottom blade. The honda mowers that use this system have everything machine fitted. I am going to try the quadracut top blade with an extreme high lift oem blade in springtime. As you can see in the pic, the honda blade sits perfectly across the 2 1/2" factory high lift. It was then simply a matter of putting in a washer reducing the hole from 1 1/4" to 1/2". In the spring/summer I am not as worried about pulverizing leaves and grass because I side discharge. I am more hoping this setup leads to a crisper cut with less stringers.
