    The JD 7-Iron seems to be a favorite here.

    The word "WET" stands out in your post which would make me believe that the Deere 7iron deck or the Scag Velocity deck would be the best.

    I can't say how well either one works in bahia grass, but those two decks would probably be the best.

    Those two are consistently recommended here on lawnsite for the conditions you describe.

    My 60" Dixie does excellent in dry Bahia. I don't really know how it does in the wet because I arrange my schedule so my Bahia lawns are dry by the time I get to them. As you're aware Bahia grows like wild and I haven't even attempted to cut it wet.
