Exmark Blades

What's your opinion on these blades? I bought a 48" s-series. Trying to find the best blades to get. I prefer high lift blades. Thanks!

High lifts work the best for me so far. I would like to see more lift out of them, but that is the best blade I have used yet. I am just finding that they don't suck up leaves as good as my walk behind does. Keep me updated and I will do the same.

I have used tje exmark high lifts, but I am going to give the Oregon blades a try next season. The lift surface on the exmark blades is not as long as the Oregon blades. I had lots of luck with them on my walk behind.
