I could not find all of the cultivars you mentioned. I found some of them.

http://ntep.org/data/tf06/tf06_12-10f/tf0612ft04.txt

Data from 2007 to 2011 are here averaged from several states in the transition zone. Naturally your particular state is most important. The top cultivar averaged 6.6 and lowest named variety 5.3; and K-31 was at 4.1. I would say you have good-quality types. Some of your listed types and average scores:

Rebel IV 6.1
Renovate 6.0
Stetson II 6.0
Biltmore 5.9
Magellen 5.9

But what really matters is how satisfied are you with the results? Any sign of brown patch disease? Wide blades? Damage from heat or cold? Insect problems? Mow cleanly? Poa annua or weed seed contamination?
