    Ok, I think I got most of the "big name" blades that come standard/optional on ZTRs.

    The Titanium Blades. They were pricey, and is probably whey they didn't last very long, but I ran a set on a John Deere Walk-Behind back in the late 1980's. Those things last an entire season with routine sharpening. You ever notice how the tip on blades gets that curved edge on them? Those old Titanium Blades never did that, and they didn't get dull nearly as fast as current blades do, and I have tried every type listed in this post. My current vote was for Gators, but I would like to see the Titanium Blades come back.

    Has anyone ever seen these things? They seem to do a great job.

    The guy said that a set of these blades for a Hustler 42" w/shipping would be $161.90.
    I know what you're thinkin'...."GOOD GREIF $170 FOR TWO BLADES?!?!?"

    Check these out, watch the video on the web-site. I don't own a set of these, but I wonder if they might be worth the money.
