well there is more than one variable as you know in deciding when or if to discharge, mulch or bag.
type of grass, client preferences, growth, etc.
in my neck of the woods there are times when the growth is to much and or to wet to just side discharge. even a double cut wouldn't finish the job. there are times when I will side discharge on the first pass and bag on the second. other times when I bag on the first and discharge on the second.
I'm doing tall fescue and kentucky blue by the way. sometimes, mostly in the spring you just can't get away from bagging or you'll leave clumps.
