    There was some discussion on here a while back about a new blade from Hustler that is supposed to help out a lot in wet grass and not clump as much. Can you tell me if this new blade is available yet and what would a set cost for a 60" super Z?

    Thanks.

    I just purchased some blades for the hustler. They said they were the new ones for the clogging issues. The ones I got were around $54 for the set. Basically it just looked like there was more of a sharpened edge. I thought they were suppose to have a higher sail.

    They are sharpened almost to the center, they are no longer a "stepped" blade design, and the sail is considered a high lift sail.
    Make sure you install the spacer kit with these blades when you put them on.

    No, there has not been any design change in the FasTrak deck, plus your already using a similar blade set up to the new style for the Hustler Z and Super Z's.
