    Been running a unit with less HP with mulch kit and doubles for a long time with great results.

    I think it will depend what combination of doubles you're using. I tried gators over high lift and it had too much airflow and therefore clumped. Horsepower means nothing if we don't know the deck size.

    the one im talking about is a 42" 21HP with mulch kit, I think when I come in contact with "floppy grass" ( I made that up) that it will eliminate the problem

    what should i run underneath of this thing?

    Man that is more power than I'd know what do do with! What kind of blades are you running now? Try single high lift blades if you're currently using wavy mulchers. The more lift you have, the more often the deck will need cleaned out when mulching...

    Husky,
    Maybe you need to ask specifically what info you're wanting. I answered what I thought was your question was and you replied with what seems like sarcasm.
    Then later you ask again for more insight.
    You will find as many suggestions on combinations as there are blade types, and some swear by doubles and some dislike for various reasons. But all of this has been covered again and again and again . . . . . .
    May I suggest that you do some searches on this topic of doubles, there you will find all sorts of insightful posts. Really!!!:rolleyes:
