Exmark TTHP Tri Advantage deck versus series 3 deck

I have been using a 48" tthp for several years. Going to buy a new walk behind this year. Wanting to here from some people that have experience with both. Does the 48" series 3 deck cut any better in wet grass than the tri vantage deck does. Is it the same deck with a different name or have they made some changes to it.

The tri vantage and Series 3 deck are the same deck. In wet conditions, idling down ¾ should help reduce deck clumping and packing.

IDK I run a 36" TTHP with the Trivantage and very rarely have any problems with clumping.

Anyone Else I thought the series 3 deck was a little deeper?

Why can't Exmark put a deck on that mower that won't clump in tall or wet grass. That's what I don't under stand . Does the new 30" mower have any problems with packing or clumping? I'M sure when you throttle down 3/4 you need to adjust your speed as well. Am i correct?
