    My Super z seems fine with doubles, but my Super Surfer seems to have an excessive amount of vibration with doubles this is something new to me any suggestions?

    When I run doubles before I had a lot of vibration and decrease in HP. I also really didn't see that much of a difference in cut or clippings. Since then I haven't run doubles.

    what blade combe do you have on the SS?? I run doubles on mine, and have no more noticeable vibration than with a stocker. Cuts a lot better.

    Ditto what bottle fed said.. My 52" surfer seems to finally met the ideal blade setup. Stock hi-lifts on bottom, and Raptor's on top. And I don't suffer any vibration..
