Rapid height 42 blade question

I purchased a brand new wright stander rapid height 42 last week. Machine cuts like a DREAM. I am currently using the oem blades that came with the machine. The machine stripes nicely but I want to darken the stripes if possible. I got a set of high lift blades for it. Should that do the trick? What is the best type of blade to use on this machine. Thank you!!!!!!!

Hoff cutz,

Higher lift blades create more vacuum and airflow and can help in creating more of a stripe effect, but come with the trade off of slightly lower engine RPM and tip speed. Try the higher lift blades but also look into an aftermarket stripe kit if the higher lift blades are too much of a change to the overall performance of the deck.

Best Regards,
Wright Mfg.
