    I know I'm going to get flamed with replys of disbelief but this is the truth. My dealer told me to try Hustlers new Fusion blades for my Super Z and I bought a new set on June 9th, 2005. Today, July 20, I sharpened them for the first time. And guess what? They really didn't need to be sharpened! By my estimate these blades have cut well over 350 lawns of 1/4 to 1/2 acre in size since June 9th. These things are unbelievable. I mow nothing but irrigated St Augustine turf so that explains some of the longevety. My dealer told me the other day that maybe he shouldn't sell them anymore for fear of loosing repeat blade business. Keep up the good work Hustler!

    Good to hear, very similar results in our testing and from what we are hearing from the end users out there.

    Your dealer is who we suggest you buy your blades from.
    Of course everyone can not always do that, I have seen several aftermarket companies selling blades for our mowers.
    On the other hand, they may not necessarily be the right blades, with our recent deck changes and blade changes I am not sure you will get the right blades from a aftermarket source.

    Is there a pic of these new fusion blads around?

    I want to see the sail, so front and an end shot would be great.

    I'm looking for a blade that can chop clippings down to a reduced size, and have enough velocity to clear the deck well. Standard hightlifts that cut and discharge just don't fit what I'm trying to achieve.

    Mulch blades can clag up....

    So....curious to see what these fusions look like, they just may fit the bill.

    I do not have any pics of the Fusion blades.
    I will ask around to see what I can get.
