Best blades for striping effect on 36WB SCAG?

I recently purchased a used 36" SCAG WB BeltDrive and I added a brand new set of Gators to it because the original blades were shot. After reading many posts on this site about striping, I'm wondering if I would get a better effect with the standard SCAG blades? Someone mentioned BobCat blades on a SCAG for best results, I'm just wondering which ones will work best for me. I'm in NJ and my lawn is very healthy, mostly tall fescule mix, and I mow it at 3.5 inches. ANy suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,
Jay

Thank you!

Thank you P&J Lawncare...What a difference. I'm very happy with my new blades. I only mow my own lawn so I don't have much practice. This is my 4th mow of the seaon and I'm new to the WB mower. One things for sure, it's fun to mow the lawn again after stepping up from the 21incher. Here is my initial attempt with new gator blades....Not much to show:

jc,

The stripes look excellent. Are those with a mulch kit installed or not?

Thanks!

No mulch kit, no roller or chains either. Just the stock deck with the bobcat high lift offset blades. I may look at making a striping kit, but for now I'm very pleased with the difference the bobcat high lift offset blades made.
