    Time to get a set of blades for my John Deere 925a ZT. I cut grass in south Georgia, north Florida. So I'll mostly be cutting bahia grass, I hate having to go over several times. So what's the most popular blade for this situation.

    The guys on here that run JD's (among other brands) seem to really like the Oregon G6's for Bahia.

    I prefer high lift blades on mowers.

    A picture (or two, three, four) is worth a thousand words-

    Blades from my Z950A. The center blade in the picture of 3 is the OEM high lift that comes stock on JD 900 series mowers. The OEM high lifts move more air, and work better under a MOD deck (which I have) on northern grasses. The guys on here that use the G6's on bahia say they literally pulverize it.

    G5/6's are high lift blades.
