Ill definitely let yas' know how they work out when I get them. The blades on my mower are stock and never replaced I finally wore them down past the minimum 2 2/8" recommended wear on the tips. I just didn't want to spend the money right away, if they dont work out I'll keep them around for fall cleanups and leaves like you said

They will reduce the clipping size but may not give you the deck suction to stand the grass up or the discharge velocity you need for dispersal, and in some conditions the smaller clippings may tend to clump up. But all decks are different...what works on one may not work on another. It's interesting how the ones for your machine are "bent". Mine are straight across.

I thought that was weird as well, the "bend" is facing upwards towards the motor on my mower, maybe it has something to do with suction? IDK but my mower cuts pretty darn good for its age and brand IMO haha. Upgrading soon, pushing through turns is realllllllyyyyy tiring haha

He's only your best friend part time?

That gravel area turned out pretty good and yeah that fire pit looks too big. Kinda small rocks too...easy to knock down.

How about talking them into cleaning up the stuff growing over/through the fence?

He's my best friend but when I'm saving for a truck and other things that want $$$ I really cant be splitting all of the work, just the work I dont want to do that much. I asked her about the crazyness on the fence and for some reason... she likes it. What ever haha
