Its not the brand of blade you buy that counts, its the type of blade with the best lift that gives you the best cut on the different types of grass you cut. Blade manufactures have a set safety standard that they must follow. There is a big difference between some blades with the lift and design that will affect your cut. Then again some mower decks just plain suck with most blades. You need to experiment with different blades on "your" mower to see what works best for you. A lot of the new mowers have odd ball blade sizes so you are limited to variety and have to use OEM blades.
