For a non MOD deck the G6's or G5's are very hard to beat for overall use, but the factory makes some darn good quality blades as well. The OEM high lifts's stripe better, but the G series blades chop the clippings up much better, while still leaving a decent stripe from a properly pitched deck.

If you have a MOD deck, they don't do near as well with the G series blades as they do with OEM high lifts or OEM wavy mulchers (which I run under my MOD a lot of the time).
