What mower are you using?
~ Some mower decks may do fine with G5/6 blades, some may not mow as well.
~ Lush/juicy Spring turf is quite challenging because if/when it is over-processed it can become a green gooey mess.
~ Variables like grass length being cut off as well as how wet the conditions are (dew/moisture/weeds/etc) will further complicate each scenario.

Not trying to be evasive here, just trying to point out that blade choice is an art best discovered through experimentation. Your grasses will be different than mine...as I suspect you have more KBG, whereas I have more fescue.

My goal is to choose the best all-around blade for my daily average conditions. Situations may dictate a different blade, so I'll change them on the spot if I feel it is worth my time.
