Ferris IS2000 52" cutting problems?

Just picked up my first REAL mower, a Ferris IS2000. Love the ride and the handling, but the cut is giving me fits. Keep UN mind, I'm not in an area where people spend money on their lawn, so I'm mowing half crabgrass usually. Since I've had it, I haven't been satisfied with the cut. It seems to leave rooster tails between the blades, especially with crabgrass. I know crabgrass doesn't cut the best, but it's abnormally bad. The deck is level. I tried tilting forward a little and it didn't make a difference that I could tell, so I put it back . Any ideas? And what should the height difference be between front an back of blades if I do tilt it? I tried 1/8". Also, I put on some G5 gator blades, and haven't noticed a difference either way. I need some help with this, it's killing me that i dropped this much money to have a worse cut than my Bushhog zt
